Busy week

I have been so busy this week I have not had a chance to play with my "little toy",hey, watch it, watch it, you know I was talking about my blue car.

We have a driver on vacation and I am running extra runs with week. By tomorrow night I will have about 70 hours in 6 days. The extra work is not as bad as having someone in the truck with me for 3 days straight. After riding all the time by myself it is a little disconcerting to have a rider.

If you have ever left your watch at home you realize how many times you look at it. That's the way with the mirror on the passengers side. I glance at it a thousand times a day and is strange with I see a person over there. Every time he moved my perifial vision would do a number on me.

The extra money will be nice because my wife says I have to earn enough to put back what I spend on the #*%+#&* thing I call a car in the driveway. She didn't say that in as many words, but we all know wifes "scream" the loudest when they don't say a word.

I also received a new book from paperbackswap that is needing read. Well that is about all the time I have for tonight.

Hmmm how long your boots been sitting there? They're starting to grow ya know!! lol What a delightful idea to plant hens & chicks in! I can well imagine how hard it to get used to having someone in the truck with you when you're not used to it. Hope you have time soon to play with your ummmm...errrr...."little toy"! lol

Sounds like you have lots going on right now. I can't even imagine 70 hours of driving in 6 days time.

I like the boots photograph.

What are you reading?

I like the planters too. Very eye-catching. Is this your wife's idea or yours?

Don't forget to stop and stretch.

Annie, I took the picture of the boots in Hayward, Ws. I love to take quirky pictures, they always come in handy when my story has not photo.
I'm reading "Outside Lies Magic", by John R. Stilgoe.

I know what you mean about someone riding along.

I hope for your review of Outside Lies Magic. I looked at the description of the book and it looks like a wonderful read for me. But I'm mostly an armchair traveler, so I wonder what you'll think.

OOO...having someone in your truck is like having someone infrige on your privacy...especially when you're not used to having someone with you.

I drive with both my back mirrors as much as I drive looking forward. I am always aware of what's behind me and what they're doing at all times.
I am the happiest when a tractor trailer truck is on my tail because then I know that a car is NOT going to pull out in front of my bike...unless they have a death wish.
