As Dr Seuss says oh the things you will see

Well my freinds this is a crazy and screwed up world we live in . And as i spend my working life as a long haul driver i get to see a side of the world most of you cant see. I see all the citys in North America from the back side. Not the pretty side you see on tv but the real city hiding in the back streets and industrial parks. The true underbelly of the place what i like to call the swub. That means the soft white underbelly. So come along and see our world and the many characters that are hiding in plain site on your highways and roads. my fellow drivers and the supporting staff that keeps them going.

Three Down One to Go

Three helicopters delivered to Fort Worth TX. only one more to go. Then I hop on a plane and fly home for Christmas. Oh how sweet it is. I am not sure how to get to my own home as I haven't been there in a while. I seem to recall it is on a dead end street and its on the right hand side. There is a lady and a teen boy in there and I seem to think there was a few cats hanging around. Maybe I should look it up on google earth just so when my sweet pea (wife) picks me up I will look knowledgeable when we get home and I don't walk into the wrong house.
Then for ten days I will be at home before flying back to Texas to finish up this run. So my freinds no posts will be coming your way. I have plans to be working hard at being a super Dad and a master husband. Making some world class Christmas memories for me and my family. So Merry Christmas to you all and I hope you spend it with the ones you love.

A Ray Of Hope In Arizona

The weather has turned out to be agreeable. Its stopped snowing and the sun has been out for a couple days so even though its not warm the roads are dry and dusty. And that my Friends is a good thing because these helicopters don't weigh that much so on slippery roads they aren't that helpful with traction.
I did see some thing Tuesday that made me laugh. I was driving across New Mexico and it had snowed and Iced over the highways pretty good over night. So needless to say the going was a little slick and a lot slow. About thirty minutes into my drive I passed a semi that had slid off the road over night. The fact he was off the road wasn't the the remarkable thing! NOPE. What made my day and made me split my guts with laughter was the three snow men the driver  made after sliding off the road.
Talk about taking lemons and making lemonade, that's a driver with a healthy outlook. He could have sat in the truck and fumed and raved or he could go outside and play. So he went outside. I wish I could say I would be that way but the truth is I would rage away and never get my snowman. Maybe I should work on that part of my personality.

Winter Sucks!

Well, I'm a freezing on a corner
                                                   in Winslow, Arizona
                                                   and such a cold sight to see
                                                   It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
                                                   Ford slowin' down to throw a snowball at me
                                                        Winter Sucks!!!!!!

Darn tricked again

I was sold a bill of goods that was not true.
They said to me "Hey Don want to spend a month in the heat moving helicopters?"
Me being no fool said sign me up.
Well once again I was proven to be a little foolish.
Just to save all of you the same fate here is the truth about Arizona.
Southern Arizona is an oven. Northern Arizona is not its pretty darn high up.
You could scratch the belly of God from up here.
And in the winter altitude means cold and snow. 
So I have once more learned one of life's little lessons.
And that is to Question everything!
Now the only question that remains is what to do with all the sun screen I brought?
