Geez,what did I do this week,if anything?..oh,I remember-left Sunday (4th Sunday in a row I had to go out,and I hate having to go on Sunday!) for Chester,W.V. After I unloaded in Chester Monday morning I went to Macedonia,Oh. and loaded coils going to Roanoke. First time i'd been to Macedonia to load for a long time.Good place to load,nice people, Rachel ( )in the office looked good as always . Unloaded in Roanoke Tuesday morning,then went to the shop and fueled and dropped my trailer and pulled a drop-deck to Duluth,Ga. with a load of steel-2 stacks of sheets,2 coils,and some other long thin strips of something or other.Had to take a drop deck to reload some small trailers at Monticello,Ga. and brought them back to New London,Va. Then I went to the shop and fueled,got my regular trailer,and went back to Lynchburg and loaded another load to Duluth,Ga. Had to go to Birmingham,Al. to load Friday and picked up a load of rebar at Nucor in Birmingham,formerly Birmingham Steel.
Made it up as far as Niota,Tn. Friday evening and stopped at Crazy Ed's truckstop and got some fuel and a bite to eat. Then I took a nap to let the traffic die down some,and left there about 12:30 am and got in about 7:00 am Saturday morning.I had a tooth hurting some when I left Thursday,and by now it was throbbing -not really a tooth,but my gum.Had a big knot on it and hurt like h#!!, but that Motrin ib is some good stuff-i'd take 2 and the pain was gone for about 6 hours,then BAM!-take two more,good for another 6 hours. I know there's some infection up in there,and little or no chance to see the dentist and get a prescription for antibiotics before Tuesday,but I got plenty of Motrin...jaw's all swollen now,looks like I got a chaw in,or I saw Mike Tyson in a bar and called him a punk...or saw Paul at a chef's convention and called him a cook. Anyway,it's nice to be home on Sunday,and know I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow. I smoked a pork loin on the grill today-looks delicious,smells delicious-owh,my gum! Anyway,they're repeating last years Ice Road Truckers on TV today,so I thought I'd watch that . Jobyna wants to watch tennis,but I let her know right quick who's king of this castle!
By the way, Andy Roddick's leading some dude named Seppi 3-1.
