I was not included in the layoff at this time. Took 3 days for the process, as employees were called in one at a time. Cut back comes from maufacturing being sent overseas. Wife said I might have to sell some guns if I lost my job - I'm still rolling on the floor laughing!

Some bright bean counter thought this would be a good idea, I'm sure. Glad you didn't get the axe.

What do you do, Deuce?

I'm on my way to Durham to work in that industry.

Hey duece, I'm a Wilsonian, and know some folks at Merck. Glad you weren't affected.

Not knowing where Wilson is, is this the plant northeast of Durham?

Pharma or medical devices?

I'm working in Durham at the moment.

Good dodge this time deuce03, hope you can keep it up. If Merck continues the current pharma manufacturing pattern they'll continue to send work overseas so you better not count on being lucky next time.

Course, they could wind up bringing it back when the quality goes down hill and the FDA says "NO". Trust me it happens.

No, this one is east, think intersection of US 264 and I-95. Least ways I think that's where it is.

You are thinking of the new vaccine plant in Treyburn, North of Durham up on I-85ish.

Let's see I think the state of NC paid around $60million for that one.

That's right, it's right near 95/264

Durham Bulls Ballpark area. So close I can watch the game and smell the hot dogs from the office.

I go by the park every morning on my way to the airport. Many Many scantily clad chicky snacks on a hot summer day in that area.

I married the right woman. She told me I will never sell my guns for anything. The day I had to sell my dirt bike was just as much of a bummer for her as it was for me.
