Glad to see you back around, Laura~!

Oh I've been around, just too tired to comment. Have been running 3000 plus miles every seven to eight days. They aren't hard runs just that sometimes my age is creeping up on me.

Ran a load to Boise on Tuesday and thought I would run to Portland Oregon and back in time for my labs at the VA in Twin Falls. Got an email that I had an appointment on Thursday with the cardiologist. The last one was by phone, so I figured this one would be also... Nope had to run from the house 2 hours to Boise. So it was good I didn't take the little short trip. I've been home but I'm tired and I'm blaming it on the CPAP! I wake up so tired after being on it... Need to use it more regularly and get used to it. Only got a couple projects done but oh well.

I'm sorry to hear of your brother, Annie. It's tough losing friends or family anytime but moreso around the holidays. Where do you live in Ohio? I have been coming out of Greensboro NC and going up to Chicago suburbs or into Wisconsin and I cut across the southwest corner of Ohio.

Take care.

Laura

Thanks, Laura . . . I looked you up on FaceBook to see that you were okay, TBH !! I told Brett, I'm NOT a doxxer (he had to look it up) just a concerned member of our little corner of the world.

MAN, they cut you TIGHT ~~!!! No WONDER you are beat. The CPAP? They tried that on the hubby a few years back .. and nope! His current company is (was then too) okay with the NOPE. He was SO tired, he pulled over to sleep in his daycab; the company 'got that.' Jury is 'out' in my mind, on that apparatus, tbh. Enjoy your hometime, if you can. . . I'm feeling the 'age' too, and I don't even DRIVE.. SHEESH. :( I'll be 55 in a couple weeks.. auugh!

I am about 10 minutes south of Mansfield, in a little town called Johnsville, which used to be Shauck, when we had a post office. My zip code is still being contemplated, depending on the shipper; no joke! 44904 will yield many results, haha!

And yes, I've got truck parking .. ask Pack, ... I say it often, nobody shows! Rob D. was at Ohio Reformatory (Shawshank) 10 miles/20 minutes away! I love that place; have a lifetime pass. Didn't do the 'halloween' tours due to covid, of course.

Thanks about my brother, Laura. Who KNOWS if he had any pre existings. He was more 'mum' than ME about his personal life; we dang Italians. Just thinking they will lump him in w/Covid.

We were supposed to 'meet' for Xmas, somewhere . . . well, now I'll have to meet him at a later date, better place. His wife & kids, and my sister..who grew up closer to him....in shock. Me, trying to accept.

Thank YOU.

Staying busy is great, imho. I wish my 16 y/o would GROW UP already.. so I CAN HAVE MY TURN at being OUT there w/yall~!!!!

Again, thanks.... don't disappear for too long next time, even though busy is GOOD! 3K ... rocks!

Appreciate you . . .

I think I'll call this "Christmas Eve In Barstow".

Sitting in the TA garage due to a wheel seal leak I've been experiencing for the past week. Waiting on the brake shoes to get here from the supply store.

Luckily I wasn't looking to be home for Christmas or this would have been a disaster.

We haven't had snow like this since I was knee high to a grasshopper. And as you can see the people here don't know how to slow down 🙄
