    Yeah he is. That picture was taking a the Alabama A day game this year. We sign him up for football again Monday. My favorite time of the year. His one of the older boys this should be a great year.

    I'm ready to go back to work though. Having to sit around all day sucks. We cant go anywhere cause I don't know how long Im going be off and I don't wont to run through my money. The short term disability hasnt went though yet. Plus the transmission went out on my wife truck dont even want to know what thats gonna cost till I get back to work. Thats why I say down but not out!

    Thats great, just take it easy, our job will agravate an injury really easy, watch that foot and slow down for a bit, I just want you to be healthy, you got you and yours to look out for! :)

    Yeah I think I will be ok. Going this week to get new boots. My Magnums are worn out. Guess I'm going to get some of those Dr Scholls insoles those are like $50. I got to take better care of myself.

    Take it from me, I went to cheap boots, money got tight, I paid a price, my feet hurt really bad on the route, I have been on shuttle 2 weeks and they feel better, but if I'm off cruise and have the accelerator to the floor, my right foot starts to hurt again, my uncle told me to take care of your feet and your teeth, or they will take care of you, and not in a good way. He was right.

    Know what you mean GT. I got a pair of Brazos for $22 at Academy. They're alright. Went back to work today. I had 8 stops 429 cases and 260 mi. Had the boss with me. My toe hurt a little but I will be alright.

    How come the boss rode? Was it so he could evaluate you after the injury?

    I hear ya Bubba, they never do want to do anything that involves actual work, unless he is like my old boss Phillip at PFG back in AR, that guy was a work horse, and one heck of a great manager, a real people person that knows how to get the job done!

    Man everything going good so far. We spent the day at the lake today. Now just sitting around sucking up this cool air getting ready for a hot week.
    One of our guys got his hand burned last weekend to the 3rd degree. So we have been taking his stops among the 3 of us. It has made the day a little longer hope it shows on the check.
    One of our guys left Friday going to US foods. Lucky sucker he should have a good little pay raise. Glad for him I just got to stay here for a while I have been job hopping last few years looking for that golden job. LOL

    I worked the night before the 4th, clocked off at 0100, only had one trip, slept all day the 4th, started at 1700 and worked 12 hrs that night, saw some cool fireworks displays on my way down to Ardmore OK though.

    I had a long day Friday. 14 hrs, 606 cases, 15 stops, and 350 miles. Worn out when I got home. This week should be back to normal. Should have everyone back. Plus Saturday is the company's kickoff party (picnic) at Nashville Shores water park. Should be fun.
