    Anybody from a multiple sibling family usually has battle scars from sibling fights. My little sis still has a scar on her forehead from little brother's dead on throwing accuracy with rocks.

    I remember the time I got my cousin in the eye with that suction cup dart gun, I might even be the reason that you can't get them anymore.

    Nothing I'd wanna do after retirement more than look at a set of ABF doubles.

    :idunno: Maybe he wants to use them to demonstrate proper loading in a classroom to new recruits.

    LTL, Wait a few years and see if you mellow, I felt the same way back in 1990, when I retired.
    Now those old PIE Wagons don't look too bad and still bring back lot of good memories.

    I'll get some UPS and Yellow doubles. Love/loved those companies. ABF...ehhh. I'm not so sure. I still get pissed about all that wasted potential.

    I very much enjoyed Yellow. Never personally got the chance to work for YRC, but from the stories I hear...that's neither Yellow NOR Roadway.

    Don't see how you claim to be retired, I saw you in your Walmart greeter vest, your ragged old White took 4 parking places.
    I bet Roadway wouldn't let you park like that.
