Mara’s been having skirmishes all day with Right-Wing Republican idiots. I’m really worried about the Election next Tuesday. It’s going to be nasty. The Republicans are doing everything they can to make it nasty, and they’re working overtime to demonize Democrats. They’re also floating the idea that the Democrats are trying to steal the election,… Continue reading Skirmishes With Republican Idiots
The needle-dick motherfucker at our customer in Bedford Park, IL (whom I had the spat with a couple of weeks ago) was watching Mara sweep this morning. Apparently he hasn’t learned anything from our encounter. I had to wonder if the fact that I apologized makes this little prick think that he won or something.… Continue reading Needle-Dick In Bedford Park
Osama bin Laden spoke on national television today. I’m not sure what I think about that. It seems like convenient timing, just before the close of business on a Friday. I think we already have him. One has to wonder if Bush & Co. will trot him out Monday evening.
I got to see the back end of my trailer slide over into the opposing lane on a 2-lane road. That’s not something that I want to repeat again. I’m not sure exactly what happened. It was raining a bit. Maybe I was going too fast. I don’t know. I started into a right-hand curve… Continue reading Trailers In The Wrong Lane
Our truck is pouring black smoke during acceleration. Just what we need. More shop time. Hopefully this can wait until our week off. We’ve had similar problems with other trucks and have managed to nurse them along for a while. Christ, I don’t want to spend any more time sitting around in a hotel room.
I read today that Yasser Arafat is sick, and that there is supposition that he may not survive. May the gods forgive me, but I can’t help thinking that his death might be a good thing. This is not an anti-Palestinian sentiment. It seems to me that if some of the old dinosaurs like Arafat… Continue reading Yasser Arafat Is Sick
I woke up this morning thinking that the world seems like a bad dream, with Republicans infected by some mind-altering virus. I really am reminded of the Rev. Jim Jones cult. Gods. If these people voted for the person who stands for what they say they stand for, they’d be voting for Kerry. But somehow… Continue reading The World Seems Like A Bad Dream
Sunday morning. Georgetown, Kentucky rest area, north-bound side on I-75. I’ve driven 218 miles. I’m tired. I’m sleepy. I’m blown out on this truck and on driving. It’s been a hell of a week, and I just don’t want to be out here anymore. This is the fourth straight week that I’ve felt like we… Continue reading Hell Of A Week
Mara bought us a cool new antenna for the CB in our truck. It’s one of the nice coil types with a whip. She got it to go along with our new mic. I like it. Makes me feel like a real truck driver (grin). I have to admit that we seem to have a… Continue reading Cool CB Antenna
I did something impulsive when we were at home last week. I placed a bid on ebay for Roger Waters’ Amused to Death on vinyl. Well, I won it, and paid for it this morning. I suppose this makes me a fan (that I was willing to pay $181 for an LP).
