Any thing interesting to report, going on this week?

Presidential Message on National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing...sage-national-truck-driver-appreciation-week/

"The enterprising and determined men and women who drive trucks are essential to our country’s economy, delivering 11.6 billion tons of freight in 2016, including essential goods like food, medicine, and clothing. Truck drivers travel from coast to coast to ensure factories have the raw materials they need and store shelves are stocked to meet the demands of our Nation’s booming economy. America depends on our trucking industry, and it continues to be a major contributor to our country’s workforce and infrastructure."

Always curious what festivities are going on across the country...

We got biscuits the other morning had no idea they were bringing them, already had breakfast that morning so it was a bust.
