Life Through the Windshield

The life of a trucker

Truck Driver/Lease Operator
Where do you start with something like this. I'm your typical white male. I'm married, for the third time. I have 9 kids and 4 grandchildren. Currently I'm an OTR truck driver. I've been doing it for the past year and a half, but I've had several careers. This one is just the latest. In the past I've tried selling cars. That didn't last long. I should say it didn't take me very long to figure out that I'm to honest to sell cars. I've spent lots of years in the restaurant business. Most of that was in the pizza business either as a manager for other or for myself. I also spent 8 years in the Air Force working in ER's and flying Aeromedical Evacuation. I have to say, the biggest mistake I've ever made was getting out. Anything else you want to know, just ask. I'll tell you.

Neena: Just checking in with pictures

Rate: 2 Flag

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't had a chance to check in for awhile. Things have changed since I've gotten older. Dad says that's a good thing.   He is stuck on the thing about labs, saying that we chew until we are two and shed until we are dead.

Okay, so maybe I did chew up his seat a little bit, but I was teething. What did he think I was going to cut my teeth on?




And why is he complaining about me shedding? He goes and gets a hair cut when he gets in off the road.






Well things have changed since I last checked in. I don't ride with dad anymore. I got to where I liked being on the farm. I have my friends that I play with. Who would Number 9 play hide and seek with if I went back on the road?




This is George. His is fun too. He likes to play hide and seek with Number 9 and me. He's easy to find. He hasn't figure out he can't hide behind the tree anymore.




Then there are my other friends on the farm. Everyday I have to check on Sirloin and T-bone. This spring when everybody was having their babies they shot a couple of coyotes sneaking down. I kept them away. That's how I made friends with them. I watched their babies.




That's another thing. Dad is pissed because I think the afterbirth and cow pies make a great snack. I don't know what he is up set about. I always bring the extras home to him and leave them on the porch. He would bring me leftovers from the truck stops. What's the difference?


Then there is Norm. He fell off the wagon. Well, he tripped over the wagon tongue. Bud said he can come back to work as soon as he feels better. He is okay. Reminds me of dad. Fun to play with, just big.





Well I had better go. I just wanted to check in before I take a beauty nap. Come on ladies, you know we have to work hard to be this cute.







PS, if you want to read my other posts, with cute pictures I might add, just follow the links.

Neena I thought you were going to bed. I have a corgi who sheds...I started saving his hair. I once had heard of a woman who knitted sweaters from her dog's hair.
