music friday: bob dylan, "masters of war"

factory life

One nice thing about keeping a blog for almost eleven years is I can revisit old posts after everyone has forgotten them. Ten years ago today, I wrote about finding a "book of days" with a small space to write stuff about each day. This was 1976, the early years of my time working in a factory (I worked there from 1973-1984). I excerpted the mini-diary, and here, I’ll excerpt the excerpt. This is what my life was like in the Bicentennial summer of ‘76:

Jul 4: worst day of my life

Jul 8: in trouble at work
Jul 10: got in fight at work - got real drunk
