    If PIE gets a piece of this, I should dovetail my 35yrs with PIE, plus the last 27 I've been laid off.
    I'll be pretty high on the board.
    Wonder if I'll need to repay CSPF 27yrs?
    Maybe I'll team with Wong.

    Laid off for 27 years.
    Betcha that phone has some cobwebs on it.
    Along with the person sitting next to it.
    :17142:
    That's like 800 years of seniority. In dog years. :stirthepot:

    Better off at Wong!
    Good slogan. Well. Ok slogan.

    the B-63's had the concave I think too many years ago. The Beam's were/are great people

    I assumed I was laid off, the gates were closed, couldn't get back in.
    Too long to feed any pooch!

    How can you pass judgement on a mechanical that allows you a swig of Java between shifts?

    Nah, I'm not really down on the Mack, just the concave cab.
    I'm waiting on "ole smarty" Elwood to tell the real truth about my problem.
    Like the shop guys always said when I wrote up a truck, "the problem is the mechanism between the seat and steering wheel"
