    I'll be praying that you'll have plenty of work, SJ!

    We didn't do anything at all today. Waiting for the bosses to get back from New Braunfels......

    Ditto, my friend. SJJ has been on my prayer list for quite some time, along with quite a few others. Figure it can't hurt.

    My roommate and I are dog sitting this weekend. Our foreman and his wife had to go to Shertz (pronounced "shirts") and they left Chip with us. He is a mix of pit bull and something else.

    He doesn't like to sit still for more than a nanosecond, so getting a picture of him was a real challenge.

    We are supposed to be heading to Denver tomorrow. I'm glad to be leaving this town for a cooler climate. It's definitely time!

    We're in Midland for another week. The foreman and I were almost half way to Denver when the bosses called and told us to come back because we have a big job. I was really hoping to get out of here today. Sigh!

    A couple of days ago, the bosses said that we are going to central California instead of Denver. Today, one of them said that we are going to Denver next weekend. Make up our minds, will you? I prefer Denver. I can't drive the green hornet the way she wants to be driven in CA. There is a 55 speed limit for big trucks for some reason. :no: Going that slow in such a powerful truck would gum up the engine!

    We are on a 3 day weekend now and the foreman and his wife went to Ohio to get their kids who have been staying with relatives so they could attend school. They're not due to return until Friday. Next week ought to be interesting. :idea:

    .....and fun week starts tomorrow. Can't wait 'til it's over. Then, unless we can find another driver, I get to drive the green hornet with the trailer to Denver and get driven back by the foreman to drive the red joke to Denver. Oh what fun!

    According to the bosses, we are leaving tomorrow for the mile high city. Of course, I have everything packed, so we won't leave until Saturday. It's gotta go that way. At least we have another driver who can get the red one cylinder wonder there instead of me making 2 trips and my foreman having to drive me back to Midland between trips.

    Well dear friends, if you don't see me here for a day or two, I'm on my way to a blessedly cooler place.

    ...or Sunday ARGH! ARGH! ARGH! (Yeah, the pirate comes out). The other driver mysteriously disappeared. The bosses are not going directly to Denver and the foreman isn't back from Ohio yet. He is due back this weekend. Until he returns, if I were to drive one truck to Denver, there would be no way to get me back to Midland to get the other truck. You might see a very frustrated SJJ around the forums for the next couple of days.

    No kidding, brother - take some deep breaths from time to time. Ten very slow deep breaths. Just observe mindfully the air coming in and out. This is helpful in order to cool down.

    Bummer to hear of your frustration. Hope you're off to cooler climes soon!
