Was it you that brought a Wolding driver a home cooked meal while he was sitting at the Home Depot? If it was, I just want to say Thank You from all of us at Wolding.

Yes. I was going to take him Christmas dinner, because he was going to be stuck there, but he was going to leave Tuesday morning. So I took him some home made chili and soups from my freezer that I had packaged for when I go to school and on the road.

I had actually planned to see if my wife had any objection to having him over for Christmas dinner, but since he wouldn't be there, it was a moot point.

And no thanks needed. I have always stopped for broken down trucks (and 4 wheelers, for that matter) and asked if they needed food or water or anything. I had just never seen them in a parking lot for the holidays before.

I had made 4 trips to Home Depot because my water heater sprung a leak, and I had to replace it. I kept noticing a bunch of trucks there, but never saw anyone, so I wasn't sure if they had left them there and gone home or what. After a few trips I saw the Wolding driver, so I pulled over to talk to him.

I'll probably swing by today, see if he needs anything, or wants a ride somewhere.

How did you hear about this, by the way?

I was wondering if I got his name right. I think it was Don. Nice guy. Nothing but good words for Wolding, by the way.

Yeah there are a few trailers there.

They told me I had to stay with my truck if I parked there. I was afraid to park there

Yes his name is Don. We have a private Facebook group just for the Wolding drivers. It is our virtual water cooler. We use it to gossip, complain, ask questions about stuff, etc.... Don posted on the group about you bringing him food.

The first Handke change I did because I was bored. There is a song by Tony Justice called Outlaw Ride. In the first verse he mentions ‘Driving Truck, eating chickin, chicken truckin’ finger licking’. Throughout the rest of the song he kept saying Chicken Truckin’. That is what inspired the first handle change. Someone that lurks on these forums and is in a Facebook group with my wife made a comment about it. So, I changed it. LDRSHIP is the 7 army values.

Loyalty

Duty

Respect

Selfless Service

Honor

Integrity

Personal Courage

The Army’s values are my values.
