Mara and are both sitting in the computer room, tinkering on the Internet. She set up her new computer in here (I bought her a new one from Dell for her birthday). And though we had some trouble yesterday, she managed to connect both of them to our new wireless network. We had to go… Continue reading Computers, Lawyers And SWG
The guys at Bedford Park were pricks today. Mara forgot to sweep the empty trailer that we dropped there. We had already left and had gone through the outer gate. Mara had pulled off to the side to do her log, and was just about to leave when Jimmy at front gate security came over… Continue reading Pricks In Bedford Park
Mama just called about the court date for my ticket. July 7th. Christ. We have to get a continuance. We don’t have a lawyer, and I don’t know if we’ll be able to find one in time.
I just saw something that pissed me off. I-74 in Indiana around mile marker 148. A middle-class black family was stopped by a state trooper, who was searching their trunk. This made me mad because of the family. We’re not talking about a bunch of young rapper wannabes in a BMW. We’re talking about a… Continue reading Racial Profiling?
I talked to Mama today. She was telling me about how she and Martha Sue (my aunt) had gone to see their sister, Edith Millwood, who is in a rest home. Edith’s sons, Pat, Jerry and Joe are diehard Republicans. The worst kind, actually. The kind who don’t think much for themselves, but just parrot… Continue reading Asshole Republican Relatives
I bought Mara a computer for her birthday today (her birthday was yesterday). She just placed the order a little bit ago. Yes, it’s another Dell (we seem to be developing a pattern here). She’s really excited, and I’m just thrilled that we had the money. I do love her so. It’s been a long… Continue reading Mara's Birthday Computer
I just saw when coming into town this morning that Ronnie Hawkins is running for county commissioner. He’s billing himself as “the conservative choice.” I’m not sure why, but this really bugs me. I suppose because of the way he acted after Loretta died. Loretta thought the world of that man, and he didn’t seem… Continue reading Ronnie Hawkins – The Conservative Choice
I just realized that I may have ordered the wrong pickup last night for Dawg’s bass. I think I may have ordered a neck position jazz pickup when I needed a bridge position pickup. So far I haven’t had the chance to go online and check. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this bass before,… Continue reading Pickups And Dawg's Bass
I listened to Majority Report on Air America tonight. It’s funny. It took Janeane Garofalo all of 10 minutes to offend me. She was talking about the Fox Network and said that the only people who listened to Fox News were “hill folk and the uneducated.” Now, being from North Carolina it could be said… Continue reading Janeane Garofalo Offends Me
It’s been a screwed up day today. In spite of going to Memphis on our first load this week, and picking up our second load from Mountain Home, Arkansas, we were making pretty good time. I expected to deliver our third load by 3pm and was shooting for 2pm. But north I-65 was shut down… Continue reading Screwed Up Day
