Back in Weldon
I had a nice visit back in my old haunts. Haunts seems the right word, because the old plant looks a bit like a ghost town.
For those who don’t know, I work in the energy sector. I spent many years working at a power plant in Weldon, NC. The plant is now shutdown and is currently being taken apart:
Change is inevitable, but it still feels a bit like my family home is being torn down.
On the bright side, I spent some time at the Riverside Mill hawking my books.
Book signing are always interesting to me. It’s interesting to watch the people try their best not to make eye contact. Actually, I had quite a few people stop and talk to me, but unfortunately it was to direct them to the bathroom. I did sell a few books, but I think I found my true calling. My new title is Director of Bathroom Patrons. Sounds kind of prestigious—right?
If you didn’t get a chance to be directed by me at the Riverside Mill, you can still find my books on Amazon. (Sorry, I’m not sure where the Amazon bathroom is, but you can maybe try Home & Garden.)
