Tightness In My Chest

I feel like I should be hyper-ventilating. Like my body’s trying to, but I just don’t know how. I got up a little while ago and called Volvo in Hickory, honestly expecting to hear that the truck was ready. After all, I hadn’t talked to them since yesterday morning. Well, they haven’t started working on… Continue reading Tightness In My Chest

U'r Miles Are Bad

I’m about to lay down for a bit. Looking at what time it is, it probably doesn’t appear that I’m getting ready to leave again. But I figure the truck isn’t going to be ready until this afternoon (if it’s ready by then). I’m hoping I can get USX to let me leave tomorrow morning.… Continue reading U'r Miles Are Bad

A Long Overdue Change

Okay, troops. I’ve been goofing off for a long time while I waited for the inspiration that would provide a direction for The Watch. Long-time subscribers to The Watch Alert mailing list know that we’ve been wandering in the wilderness for quite some time now. Well, as it so happens, The Watch has devolved to… Continue reading A Long Overdue Change
