ACK!

Okay, this truck struck me as funny. If ever I’ve seen any critter, sentient or otherwise, that deserved the exclamation this truck was making, this is the one. Okay, for those who aren’t up to speed here, the M is missing from MACK on the hood of this truck. I took that to mean that… Continue reading ACK!

Encounter With TDI

I just passed the Truck Driver Institute in Richburg, South Carolina. This is only notable because it’s the place I trained to get my CDL in 1999. I’m surprised they’re still in operation, to be honest with you. But I assume they must be doing a better job now than they were in 1999. How… Continue reading Encounter With TDI

From Barstow to Wilmington

I just officially drove those last couple of miles of Interstate 40 into Wilmington. In all my years of driving, I’ve been on every stretch of I-40 from Barstow, California to just short of Wilmington, North Carolina. Well, tonight I drove that last ten miles or so to the very end of I-40 on the… Continue reading From Barstow to Wilmington

Venice Lofts

Picking up in Philadelphia is always such an adventure. I just had to go through a well-manicured area at exit 338 off I-76. Basically it’s an old town sort of area that’s been taken over by the yuppies. Lots of old buildings that have been renovated. Old mills turned into loft apartments. Walking and bike… Continue reading Venice Lofts

Fretless Guitar

Racine, Virgina. Stopped at a truck stop to regroup. I’m still peddling, trying to get home from Massachusetts. Not going to have much of a weekend. But that’s alright. I could deliver this load as late as midnight on Monday. But I plan to get rid of it early Monday morning. I’ve thinking about my… Continue reading Fretless Guitar

Coming Home To Roost

I’ve listening to reports about the housing market and how there is a crisis of people defaulting on their mortgages. Due to my own experiences I’m having a hard time mustering any sympathy for the pains and troubles of American financial institutions. To me, it seems like the chickens coming home to roost after years… Continue reading Coming Home To Roost

Heaving Bosoms

It wasn’t hot enough to be stifling. Just hot enough for heaving bosoms to be glistening with sweat. Okay, that last bit was a visual just for me. You’ll have to make your own. I’m sitting in Braintree, Massachusetts, waiting to be loaded. And waiting … and waiting. Basically, I got here at 10:00. They… Continue reading Heaving Bosoms

Pondering The End

I just passed Kings Mountain, North Carolina, peddling toward Greensboro. I’m dropping a load there that I’m bringing up from Lithia Springs, Georgia. A short run. And after this they have me pre-planned on another short run (Greensboro to Rocky Mount). This week is not going well. But I guess I set the pace on… Continue reading Pondering The End

Fairies with Attitude

I bought a couple fairy figures tonight. They’re little old cheap plastic things made in China, but these pass as my idea of cute. Yeah. My fairy can kick your fairy’s ass. I got some funny looks. I think to truck drivers if you buy a fairy you must be a fairy. But no one… Continue reading Fairies with Attitude

Conservative Disorder

Was scanning the radio and stopped on a few Right-Wing talk shows. I’m beginning to believe that Conservatism is a mental disorder. They remind me of lunatics ranting about the spiders that live in the reflection in the mirror. Just heard a guy segue way from the soldiers who raped a 14 year old Iraqi… Continue reading Conservative Disorder
