    As of July 1st, 23 of us in our work group became "surplus" employees. Last night, the official meeting was had with one of the bosses, entailing the specifics of our "voluntary" seperation packages, and when our last day would be. As we are a union shop, they want 23 takers regardless of seniority, before going down the chopping block in inverse order. The payoff is very generous, and barring any rediculous conditions in the package, I expect I'll be taking it. I have already been invited to return to my "old" job that I had prior to the July 1st closure of the divestment of old Verizon wireline territory as a contractor for the "new" company. So, effective what should be August 13th, I will no longer be employed by Verizon. This will close 12 years, and 10 and a half months of working for the same employer.
    With the invite to work as a contractor, my hopes are high that I will spend "0" days unemployed, and that it will open a door for permanent employment with the new company in the Pacific Northwest after a six month "no competition" clause expires.
    While there are a few butterflies over the upcoming chain of events, I'm actually looking very forward to the road ahead, and where it may lead.
