Hey ya’ll. Yep I went MIA again. Life happens, lol. Been very busy. In November I brought my girlfriend over here and got her through all the hiring process, orientation and initial training. Then we took vacation over the holidays and escaped to the bahamas over new years, then back to work.

Learning to share space in a truck is a very different experience. Nothing is ever where you left it, lol. It has been a learning curve for sure for us both. Company has been doing some restructuring stuff which has added to my frustration level. But I have found a work around on some of that, which has worked out for the best.

Teaching someone to drive this long nose manual has had its challenges, but she has done great. I am very proud of her, and the transmission and clutch have survived.

I hope everyone is doing well in this new year. God Bless and hold each of you safe.

P.J., I've gotta tell you; I was thinking about sending out the 'geek squad' or something (?!?) to look for you and the Missus (Tracey, right?) ! Wow, I'm so glad you are 'back...back in the saddle again!' (or at least back here, on TT!!)

We've missed the likes of you, man. Big time.

My hubby taught me how to drive on a 'hood' .... fun, isn't it? (at least YOUR lady didn't chip 4th and 9th....and yes, it was a tanker..asphalt.) :(

I was wondering about your whereabouts last week, too. Glad to see you've returned and the two of you are doing well.

I was thinking the same thing and was getting ready to post a "Where's PJ" thread.
