The ones I did take and share. Looks like I was starting to show signs of sleep deprivation as I was a bit fuzzy on what State I was entering!

Very cool! Drove by it in training... didn't have time to stop. I was right seat at the time so I did get a pic or two but nothing as cool as that!

Thanks for sharing!

Photo didn’t upload. Sorry

double-quotes-end.png

Again, BK? LoLoL, j/k!

Open, the 'post reply.'

Click 'photo' 5th blue tab over. Then, it'll say 'upload new photo,' (another blue tab.) Once you select from your device, and NAME IT, click 'GO' AND you'll see a thumbnail of said photo.

Then, carry on with your post. It'll say, in HTML, open bracket, img scr ... etc... and then backslash, closed bracket. I can't type that here, or it will confuse the program. Believe me, I've learned, haha!

I guess $100,000 just doesn't buy as much in web design and support as it used to!

You are all too kind.

I believe love is the secret ingredient in most recipes - especially old family ones!

Livin' the dream! Hope all is well with you all too!

Steve, you are so right about family. And omelettes. There is one guy we don’t hear from much anymore, Marc Lee (postcards from the road thread), and he is a world class omelette maker. He visited me some years back a made the best omelette I’ve ever eaten. I wish I had paid more attention to his secrets. However, YouTube has hundreds of great videos about cooking eggs.

As far as family, TT is my extended family I can always keep in touch with no matter where I’m at. Especially Momcat! Lol

smile.gif

Happy to teach! Been cookin' them since I was taught at age 4. Used to cry when they stuck to the pan. Folding Teflon pan fixed that?

Once cooked am 18 egger in cast iron at a chicken farm!

PackRat, I don't recall us ever having a driver from J & R Schugel in here. There was a kid in my truck driving school class who wanted to work for them, but they wouldn't hire him at the time. I hope it exceeds your expectations.

I'm the only one, as far as I know. Thanks for the well wishes!

Best to ya, from me...also! (Well, if you'd answer Noob, you might have another, haha!) Marc Lee is ENAMORED with your truck(s;) just got done correcting him; they look like SKITTLES, not EMINEMS~!! LoLoL. He wanted to get on w/them, they declined him.

PackRat .... I LOVE the Hunter Green. MY 100% favorite ever color!!! I'm gonna need to see THIS ONE in person; especially if they keep you in the CMH area!

Best to ya, man. Marc Lee says so, too! AWESOME PIC OF MS. LAURA & MONTY!!!! (IDMtnGal! Monty still looks like a rabbit/rat, haha!)

~ Anne ~

ps: If the snow 'shows' it's ugliness tonight (or the 'glitz & glamour') ... I'll post pix tmrw!

Not declined. Remember, I corrected that statement. What happened was they always had a several month wait for their "finishing school" in my neck of the woods.

And not enamored so much... Just love the fact that they make you say "I didn't even know they came in that/those colors!"

Green is tasteful!

My company got the Air Force emblem and put it on the truck about 10 days ago. PackRat took the picture for me 😁 cause I was holding my mini Rat Terrier who wanted to visit with PackRat.

Laura

Lost my medical card. :(

As of July 1st I have been completely vegan. I no longer eat any animal products. This has made me feel great. I've lost additional weight and have more energy.

This started after watching The Game Changer on Netflix.

I highly recommend anyone wanting to go this route investigate for yourself.

Welcome to the club!

Been vegan for coming up on 2 years now. I still indulge in a moderate amount of honey. Bees produce way more than they eat and don't seem to mind sharing!

Hello Marc,

What you said in your post is almost word for word what the doctor told me. I eat a lot of fruit (fructose) and a lot of raw vegetables. The doctor told me to cut way down on the fruit and increase the veggies. Then he wants to re-test the blood sugar level in 60 days.

Cool. So the one thing not being discussed here is 'diagnosis". While those A1C numbers may be valid prior to a diabetes diagnosis once diagnosed with diabetes the target changes. I don't know anyone who is diabetic who wouldn't be thrilled with an a1c significantly under seven.

I recently had a test at the clinic where my doctor practices. It showed I was at a 6 and the doctor said that was way too high and helped me figure out how to get that number down with dietary changes. Hopefully, my next test shows better results.

Bruce, sorry to hear that but surprised as well. 6.0 is WAY TOO HIGH???

A normal A1C level is below 5.7%, a level of 5.7% to 6.4% indicates prediabetes, and a level of 6.5% or more indicates diabetes. Within the 5.7% to 6.4% prediabetes range, the higher your A1C, the greater your risk is for developing type 2 diabetes.

Lost my medical card. :(

My husband has type 1 diabetes and for the last couple of years he has been struggling to keep his numbers under control and gets super stress stressed when the DOT physical comes around to get his medical card because he’s afraid he won’t pass and lose his job. I would think with the shortages on drivers, doctors would be a slight bit more lenient and would work with the drivers more as long as they are showing an effort , right? My husband did his A1C and it was an 8.1. So, he automatically thinks he failed, yelling about having to find a new job, freaking out about not knowing what to do, and I’m trying to reassure him everything will be okay. Does anyone know if the doctors will work with the drivers and give at least a 3 to 6 month medical card so he can have time to get his A1C down? And advice or knowledge would be great. He’s in such a panic, I just want to fix this so he can calm down.

Heather, does he use insulin? If so, LOW blood sugar is usually the larger concern. I don't know that an 8.1 A1C would cause a denial of a Federal Medical Certificate but I don't think it will. My examiner simply does a urine "dip" test. It he doesn't detect sugar it is a non issue.

If he uses insulin a high reading could affect the ability to get the required signoff on the required form but again, LOW is the larger concern.

Best of luck to you both. My advice... Breath! One step at a time. Freaking out does not help!

Postcards from the Road! (Post Yours Please!)

I didn't snap a picture and the video is far too long but a couple days ago there was a Iowa State Patrol Sergeant that was shot and killed in the line of duty. They needed to move his body back home from the coroner's office in Des Moines today. From Des Moines north to atleast highway 20 (50ish miles) on every overpass they had first responders outside their vehicles with lights on. I'm guessing it continued onto US 20 east another 50ish miles to the area it occured. They had 2 state troopers, the hearst, an SUV (I'm guessing his family) followed by 2 more troopers with an additional 3 creating a rolling roadblock about a mile back all with lights activated. It was amazing to see so many first responders come together to send one of their own off even though many likely didn't know him. Something similiar happened last month when a correctional officer and nurse were killed by inmates in a prison escape attempt. I'm not ashamed to say that it brought a few tears to my eyes.

Rob, I can totally relate. Here in Milwaukee we had a bad run for Milwaukee Police Officers. I believe 3 died in the line of duty in less than a year - 2 in pretty short order.

The third was killed trying to serve a warrant. His procession traveled over 10 miles from the funeral home to the cemetery. I was living nearby the cemetary. I grabbed my 3' x 5' flag, tied it to my p.u. and headed over. Standing a few blocks from the cemetary entrance I held and waived it for the 20+ minutes it took the entourage to pass.

Law enforcement and 1st responder vehicles from all over the Midwest, many fully loaded, marked and unmarked were part of the procession. They blasted their sirens as the approached and passed. Many looked right at me - nodding, crying, one or more clearly said thank you. I am tearing up just writing this. It was and still is extremely moving.

I am so glad I was part of it along with many many others.

Be well and be safe!

ANYWHO . . . Do many people overnight (take 34's) at a tank wash? Is that a thing? Did I misread ? BE SAFE, well, and rested, eitherhow!

~ Anne ~

Guessing he's at one of the truck stops NEAR his tank wash. I "rescued" him there once. We had a great time together!

I’m in Kenosha WI. I hauled a liad into Wisconsin Rapids and delivered a day early. Made it to the tank wash and will get a 34 in. They had already got me a reload for friday based on the delivery schedule. Guess I messed that up🤭. I will deliver in SC sunday and when they found out I’ll have hours they said pick 1 of 3 loads to reload monday. One was coming right back to wisconsin rapids. That is a load from h**l. I picked Wabash In for next week.

Annemarie clued me in. Text me back. Could meet up Friday if you want.

These four are better looking from a distance, really cool, but not show pieces. Those enclosed trailers cost a bunch more for the owner to use as a transport option, too.

There are two newer Porsches on the rear of the trailer, but those don't do anything for me.

Very cool nonetheless Rob.

I once worked at a Porsche / Audi / Suzuki dealer. (Long story)...

Porsches were always delivered in fully enclosed (side-curtain) haulers. There was always a "special" little something in that last (to be unloaded) spot over the cab - 911 "whale-tail" turbo for example.

There was always great excitement and anticipation until the last little jewel was unloaded.

They still get me excited!
