  What Happened to Prison Pete?
[Editor] Nothing has happened to Prison Pete. Nothing at all. He is still rotting away in a NY State prison. Unfortunately, something negative has happened to me, his Editor and friend on the outside who posts his blog for him.

I had planned to resume blog posts after I returned from my vacation the first week of September, but instead I returned to find that my company had done some restructuring and my position (and many others) had been eliminated. After 11 years with the same company, I was laid off and am currently unemployed.

Besides the obvious loss of salary and benefits, one of the things I lost along with my job was access to a high speed scanner at work that I was using to convert Pete's letters to machine readable format for posting. Now I have to figure out a new way to convert Pete's letters to postable text short of actually retyping them myself, which would be just too painful and time consuming. One letter a week I can handle, but not one per day like he was doing for a while.

In the last couple of weeks I've been very busy getting my resume together and looking for a new job, so the blog has been neglected. But I still have some of Pete's letters that I scanned before vacation which I can post. After that, I'll just have to do the best I can with the resources I have available.

Meanwhile I've got some job prospects and am cautiously optimistic. The job market seems better now than it was a few years ago. I'll keep you all informed of my progress.
I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your job. I know you were worried about that earlier. I do hope you find something soon. Thanks for letting us know and I'll be praying for you.
Good luck with your job search.
Ohhh daaaang.I'm sorry to hear about your job,but good luck sweety on your job search...I am drawing unemployment myself,and it sux...but some $$ is better than zip.I thought I would have more time on my hands drawing a check...yea right....I have a more complicated life NOW than before.My blog rambles on about THAT.
So I won't waste time here boo-hoo'ing....but chin up and.....well,at least you have a cool resume'.I wouldn't even want to use one finding a job.I don't have anything but hairdresser skills and THAT license got outdated thanks to prison.
Anyways...your a terrific guy for posting for Pete.He's a doll,so I know he understands you can't handle the mail like you did before....but don't stress on it.You've been more than a good friend for so long to Pete-ee....he'll understand.
K....I'm repeating myself,so I'll end this with a great big hug,and wishing you the best of luck in the job search.Your a smart guy...you'll land a good job,if not better than the last.
I'm sorry to hear about your employment situation. Please don't hesitate to call upon me to again help with transcriptions. Sending good thoughts and energy your way!

bye for now....
Oh,and I forgot to mention.I'm JUST as eager to hear about you as I am Pete...so please keep us informed whenever you get a chance,hun.
Big Hugs,
I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I will keep good thoughts for you and Pete.
