I was supposed to pick her horse up on Saturday so he could live here. My friend wanted to spend time with him in a quiet environment, a friend of hers rides here occasionally and she wanted to be here to ride with her and she wanted to go along with us when we go places. The problem is, board is much higher here than where her horse currently lives. So a little bit of the domino effect.
Because of the economy I, in effect, lost my job over a year ago. I started to think about all of the people like me who aren't in the traditional work force and therefore aren't counted in the job loss statistics. So how many non-traditional workers lost their income over the first three weeks of October?
My friend is young, smart, attractive and educated. And unemployed in a very bad job market. I feel sad for her and hope she can keep her head above water during these troubled times.
Eleven more days, maybe the clouds will lift.
