Sitting In The Truck

Sitting in the truck, waiting for Epes to figure out what to do with me. I don’t have a trailer, so I’m not really in play until they find me one. Obviously I didn’t leave yesterday.

Kind Of Like Yard Work

In spite of myself, I think I kind of like this yard work. I guess if I were to do this every day I would complain every morning, like everyone else. But I really like this 8 hour day stuff. Of course, that constitutes a sizable cut in pay. But it’s been nice to get… Continue reading Kind Of Like Yard Work
