Well, after some serious negotiating with Trans Carriers's leasing company and two dead cordless phones we have a deal on one of two trucks, I need to get to Memphis, look the trucks over and make my final decision and get any work done on it before signing, back to work I am! I must have made an impression on the company, 2 weeks ago the lease purchase program has been stalled, too many guys not living up to their end of the deal and turning trucks in. After talking to the head of the company it has been decided I can skip the routine, get another truck and go back to scaring people on the highways! I pick up my new to me Peterbilt on Wed. (hope this one don't go poof!)

I want to thank everyone one more time for the help you have given me either in gifts or best wishes, it was all appreciated! I have tried to send thank you notes but the incoming mail was overwelming and some of the mail came with no user names, but I have all of your addresses and they are all added to our mailing list for personal thank you notes and holiday cards. I made a couple offers to pay back some of what was sent and was threatened with violence (told I would get my butt kicked if I tried!). Your donations, gifts and well wishes have helped me and my family thru a very hard time, without you it would've been harder than what it was, you saved the day! To keep myself from going nuts I did some horse trading with some of my guns, got a couple new guns and a * hound out of it all, fuuny how much dealing you can do with no money if you try hard enough! Now that I'm going back to work I can go back to spending money on toys after a few bills are caught up, relief is in sight! Once again, thank you to all!

    GHD, I got your number in my cell phone, I got no excuse to not get ahold of you when I come thru!

    PA, you archery hunt? May have to get up there during archery season, get into some of them big mountain deer, not these tiny farm deer we have down here! Also I will be planning a trip to Grices soon, the boy still wants one of those John Wayne guns and Grices has them cheap!

    BR, it's not the work I miss, it's the paycheck[:D]! Well and I do sorta miss scaring little old ladies[}:)]

    dheffley, I'm so glad to see you back posting, we was thinking of you! Sure, I'll give the air horns a big 'ol rip, I like doing that when I get passed by a car with a little kid in the back seat doing the motions for the horns and mom/dad has no idea he is doing it, hehe scares 'em[}:)][:D]

    Actually my first impulse was to say,"'Bout time ya got off your butt and got back to work,think you can lay around milkin' the big teet forever?"A quote from Big Daddy Senior after a building fell on me and I finally got out of the hospital. Good luck and think about getting one of those formula one racing suits, the fireproof jobs with the cool boots. Big Daddy

    What no snide remarks from "The Law" on this good news?

    Guess this news means I'll have to be watching my rear-view mirrors for those Peterbuilt's again... [;)]

    Hey 7

    Drive safe in your new rig...and when you get back on an even keel add a good caliber (375 H&H) to your arsenal.

    Your diligence in the past is being cashed in now when you need it. I wished the younger generation could learn that lesson.

    I'm pleased you're back on track.

    I apologize for waiting so long to give ya a congratulations but here is is [:D]CONGRATULATIONS[:D].
    My dad owns his own truck, (well lets say it's the banks and they let him drive it) but getting in that drivers seat and trucking is a passion to him. There are times where he doesn't have a load for a few days of even maybe a week or two. This drives him nuts!!
    The waiting is behind you, good luck and drive safe!![^],,,sod

    7mm, sometimes work is a real drag, but it sure beats the heck out of unemployment doesn't it?

    Glad to see you are back running!
