Trying To Leave Early. Thoughts On Basses

Tuesday morning. I’m waiting for Mara to come back with the truck. We’re trying to get out of here early this morning. Well, earlier than usual, anyway. Ray expects us to correct a mistake that was made last week. Apparently we took a load to Waukegan that was supposed to go to Memphis. Okay, so […]

Asshole On The Highway

People confuse me. I’m at the rest area in Sugartit, Kentucky. Just before I came in here, I was behind a woman who was going slow in the 2nd lane over. So I dropped over in the right lane to pass her. I was just coming up on her when she jumped over in front […]

Dreams And Relatives

Had a dream. Mara and I were at a reunion. I believe it was Mama’s family. I remember running into my cousin, Chad Short. I punched him lightly on the arm and said hello. He was friendly (as Chad always is), but he was talking to some friends and I wandered on. No one else […]

Reflections On A Horrible Week

Another Tuesday. Mara is at the truck stop. I’ve been rushing around trying to get some things done. I didn’t update much of anything yesterday. I didn’t have time. Last week was really screwed up. Our customer in Bedford Park had rejected a trailer, which caused us problems all week. Whenever they do that, we […]

Delays At Bedford Park

Delays: We were delayed 4 1/2 hours at customer in Bedford Park, IL. Because of the trailer situation, we had to be live loaded. Naturally there were 2 trucks ahead of us. And naturally, even after loading those trucks, the guy had to go do something else before he could load us. Anyway, we finally […]

Dreams And Monks And Dragons

Dreams. Or a dream. I’m not sure. At first I was in some sort of office-like area, like I was picking up Mara from work or something. It felt like an office, but maybe a clinic at the same time. There was a main room and then smaller rooms off of it, like maybe they […]

Mara's New Speeding Ticket

Mara got a speeding ticket today. In usual fashion, she got mad at me about it and told me that I certainly couldn’t say anything, because I’ve gotten speeding tickets in the past. Oddly enough, I hadn’t said anything, but she’s been trying to pick a fight about it all day. I admit that I […]

Tinkering With The 8-Track

I tinkered with my 8-track today; just to see if it worked. A tape came with it which seemed to have something recorded on it, so I plugged it up to my 4-track’s mixer to see what it was. I assume that this tape was recorded on this machine. That’s a good sign. I won’t […]

Home Early

I’m about to take a shower and go to bed. I need to post an update, but I’m too tired to do it right now. For now, suffice it to say that Mara and I returned home early this week. We came home in a new Volvo 780. We arrived and found that the 8-track […]

Depressed By A Truck

Well, it looks like we’ll be leaving today. One of the guys at Covington Diesel (where our truck is at) went to Greensboro and picked up a fuel pump. They said to call back around 16:15 to see if it will be ready today (which is what they’re shooting for). We have no reason to […]
