Changes, And Lack There Of...

I made it through the first week of the strike. Mostly by the grace and great company of my knitting friends. Thanks to you all! Next weeks picket schedule will be a bit hairy for me. I'll be on the line three days this week, from 3am to 7am. I can only imagine how cold it's going to be. But, I think I'm prepared for it. As of yesterday there have been no changes in our status. I do know that our strike has idled at least three GM plants so far. But at the moment, that is not having any effect on negotiations. At least as far as I've been told. I had predicted two weeks to a month for this strike. I may have underestimated the situation, but only time will tell.

Yesterday I met several of the nicest ladies I have met in quite some time. I learned a few things, knit a little, and over-all had a great day. Thanks to these wonderful knitters.

I think I've decided to move the blog over to WordPress. I'm not sure how difficult this is going to be, so if I disappear for a bit rest assured "I'll Be Back!" (sorry, I couldn't resist)

Hang in there! I can't believe your picket hours!
Didn't make it last night the weather was just starting to turn crappy.

Sorry it took me so long to get back. I tried to post a comment when you blogged but it wouldn't be nice to me. Dang Blogger!!
Hope you're doing okay with the picket well as you can anyway. Still rooting for ya!
Let me know how you like Wordpress...I can't move if it's not blond compatible. lol
