Random Thoughts

We're tooling through New York state on our way to Massachusetts. Someone at Mr. Trucker's company must have a sense of humor, sending us to the northeast during a winter snow advisory. So far, though, I must say, we've avoided driving in bad weather. We got six inches of snow during the night in Pennsylvania, but we were all closed up cozy in our little truck cab. I saw this on the front page of USA Today this morning:

Packers vs "Da Bears"
Can't wait for that game on Sunday! Hope we don't have to watch it in Kentucky, though, in another smoke filled trucker's lounge. Our next load will be from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania, then another one from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin. Maybe we'll end up having to watch the game in Chicago. THAT would suck! 

One of my Green Bay readers asked if they had green and gold M&M's in Arkansas? I wonder if that means they have them in Green Bay? 

By the way, see if you can spot Mr. Trucker in this picture:

Mr. T and his new friends

Here he is on Christmas Eve in Daytona Beach, enjoying himself immensely

This is the life!
Okay, now we're in Connecticut. I suppose now I'm going to have to listen to Mr. Trucker P & Moan about the 55 mph drivers. 

My job this morning is to sit on the computer and monitor activity on the Apple home page because they're going to hit 10 billion downloads from the App store sometime this morning, and whoever is the 10 billionth download will win a $10,000 gift card to the app store. They're up to about 9 billion, 980 some million already & he's convinced it's going to hit within the next couple of hours and wants a chance to get in on the action.

Today's Silly Sounding Place Name (this one's for Mims):  

Guelph, Ontario (in Canada, eh?)


  1. Hahaha, Guelph! Told you that was a good one!

  2. Yes, I hear green and gold M&M's are available in WI. I haven't seen them myself but I haven't been looking. Won't that be the craze when (catch that WHEN) they win on Sunday!!!
