OK, enough of the nonsense,it's time to be serious. :huh: I've got a 'chicken on a can' cooking in the smoker oven too,always tender,juicy,and most delicious! Very easy to make too.

I had to start this all over just now-it's very windy here and the power went off just for a couple of seconds,long enough to shut the computer off so I lost everything and had to restart it and start all over again. A big deal when you type with one finger.

I left Sunday going to Fremont,Oh. When I unloaded there Monday morning the parking lot was covered with a thick layer of ice so slick you could barely stand up.It was extra slick because it was warming up rapidly and was wet on top. 38% slicker than if it wasn't wet. ( I just make this stuff up,no scientific facts here...well,once in a while there might be,'ya never know! ) It was a major operation to get in the proper unloading position. Troy the unloader man said "well maybe the weather will be better when you come back".

Then I went all the way to Sharon,Pa. to reload coils for Handy in Lynchburg.Unloaded there Tuesday morning,then by the shop for fuel,and on to Dillwyn to load for Fremont,Oh. When I unloaded there Wednesday morning it was pouring rain. Rt. 250 was completely covered before I got to Ashland,Oh. but i drove through OK. I told Troy after I was unloaded "maybe the weather will be better next time i'm here". Then I went all the way to Sharon,Pa. to load coils for Handy in Lynchburg.Wonder what happened to I.D.S. in Macedonia,where we loaded the coils for Metalsa in Roanoke. A great place to load,never took long,all the guys were friendly there-something you don't see much anymore,and the lovely Rachel in the office with the big b-b...big eyes.

So after I unloaded in Lynchburg Thursday I went to the shop and fueled,and sure enough there was A Brook Park (Cleveland) Oh. load waiting for me. Don't get to go by the house,don't even get to sit down,before you gotta go again.I've already ran two Fremonts-I told Todd "I'll take this Brook Park and deliver it Monday". He said " if you don't want that I've got a Parkersburg at Ed's". Great-Parkersburg sounds much better on Thursday than Cleveland. So I went to Moneta,load the lumber,go to Parkersburg,and when I get unloaded Friday morning I have to go all the way to Brookfield,Oh. to load back-coils for Metalsa. I might as well have took the Brook Park in the first place! That's the way it's been since Christmas,every weekend I either don't get home 'til Saturday or have to leave on Sunday. But as Joe says the bills never stop,so I can't either-not for long anyway. Unloaded in Roanoke Saturday morning,so at least i'm off until Monday now...though it's already Sunday afternoon.

By the way,pretty catchy title too,don't 'ya think?

yeah,that's enough being serious-nonsense is way more fun.I have to be serious and work my a$$ off all week."lookin' that dog in the a$$" as my brother-in-law used to say,even though I hadn't driven a Mack in years.

Don't feel bad people would give me he!! about that when I had my :mack1: . I think it's jealousy myself. My wife's uncle had a garage and wrecker service and would always say that to me. He didn't like it much when I told him I would pull his little low-pro international wrecker a new a$$-hole with my :mack1: . Was peaceful after that though. I like your title, are you an paul in a little friendly competition?

Paul? Oh no,not at all. In fact I told him he was engaging in a battle of wits with an unarmed man,so I'm not getting into anything like that. :D

I seen that you had posted that before, but was just curious. I talked to Bollwevil earlier and man he's a cool guy, very knowledgable about trucks. He told me about when he picked up his R700 in oregon. He's putting a dump bed on it and going back to work with it.

yeah,he just looks like he would be the kind of guy you could stand around and talk to all day and never get tired of it. I looked at his gallery though and wondered if there had been an explosion- he has lot's of unconnected parts that look like they are supposed to be connected. What's up with that Bollweevil?

He told me it took about a month to finally get everything back together because of the rain. He'll have to get on here and tell the full story it's good.
