I'm diggin' it, man! White/Volvo? I drove one darn near identical several years ago. Loved it.

Right now I drive a KW T800; 62" midroof sleeper, tag axle, 475 ISX Cummins, 18 speed. If I were any smarter, I'd post a picture.

Star, Marcell was the log truck driving cousin in a certain Cajun comedian's stories (his name escapes me at the moment) but he was always telling tall tales about Marcell and his log truck. That is where that name came from.

The comedian was Jerry Clower, from Yazoo City, Mississippi. One funny guy! And he told stories that were suitable for all ages. A real treat these days. They play a lot of his bits on XM Blue Collar Radio. His cousin was Marcel Ledbetter.

Thanks Flatwater! I was in a hurry earlier and on my phone, and I was drawing a blank on his name. I have such memories of listening to him and just cracking up. That kind of humor is so much funnier than all this foul mouthed nasty stuff that passes for comedy these days. I'll never forget him telling about the three legged hog that was a family pet so they had to eat it one leg at a time, or the guy up in the tree having a close encounter with a Lynx "Knock him out John!", or the fact that Jerry Clower thought his life's calling was to be a fertilizer salesman because he was naturally gifted at spreading bull **** around! All those crazy tales about Marcell Ledbetter, and the time they kept selling the mule back and forth with each other until one year it finally died and they were sad because they couldn't keep on making a living by selling the mule back and forth with each other. I've got to do some research now and see if they have any of his old shows on CD. I'd get a kick out of that while traversing the country.

Yep, Jerry Clower had some good stories. Loved the way he said, " Haw."

Maybe that's why I got into Logging? One of those sublimeenal thoughts! Hey it happened back in the drive-in movie days. All those flashin ads for popcorn and coke made me buy one.rofl-3.gif

Got say thought, that I am have a time of my life. No big stress any more. Teaching the owner how to calm down too. He's in Floreeda this week. Got to run the crew a whole 5 hours Monday, then the starter went out on the Loader, had to pull that out, take it to be re-built and will put it back in maybe tomorrow or Friday. Got myself invited down to have turkey with some friends so maybe Friday. Couldn't work the rest of the week because of the rain and that BIG ice and snow storm, ( we were supposed to get). Got nuthin but rain. But, it's still good. Me and the cat been sittin by the wood burnin stove watchin the televsion.

Did you know a starter on a Big John Deer Loader weighs about 150lbs.? Man that sucker was heavy. Gettin her back in is gonna be a ........bugger!rofl-2.gif

I think Brett's Turkey is bigger though.
