    Donna says she noticed a funny R imprint on Wong's forehead after the Boardwalk incident.
    So where in the Hotel did you punch him??

    Mud, the set of pups makes a circle for the second hand
    Runs on about 2 drops of #2 diesel a week.
    This was a million mile club.

    When I arrived in Albuquerque NM in June of 1981 P.I.E. had a breakbulk on Hawkins and shared a large fueling station with CF on Coors Blvd. Ryder Truck Line was new to Albuquerque and had a small terminal. I started with Roadway as a casual and later on with P.I.E. also. Roadway put me on full time in July of 1982. I remember when P.I.E. and Ryder merged. The P.I.E. breakbulk continued on and the small Ryder Albuquerque terminal disappeared.

    No, no, leave my watch alone.
    When I make enough money on the Coop payroll, I'll have a battery replaced and make a video of those pups going around.
    This thing hasn't been worn since the 80s, could be out of fuel.
    My wife wore the watch and kept it fueled and oil changed, I'm guessing Detroit engine, she always had oil on her wrist.
