    Our youngest daughter is an inspiration to us in many ways. She is now a Captain in the Air Force. She is a civil engineer who really enjoys her job and enjoys being in the service and the many opportunities she has. She is also an athlete who has started running marathons.

    Bob and I split our driving shift between 2 and 3 in the morning. Sometimes it can be work to stay alert just before the sun comes up for me. I have downloaded what I call my stay awake music and when I see the sun trying to peak its way out I go to my stay awake music.

    We have found that having a network of friends sure helps to make our lives easier! We have contacts with in the office, we have contacts among other expediters and we have contacts in other areas of trucking. The cell phone keeps us in touch.

    Bob and I are constantly reading talking and listening to trucking information. The better informed we are the better we can stay on top of what we need to do to have a successful business. We not only read books on trucking we read self help books

    How cool is purple oatmeal first thing in the morning? I have always been a fan of oatmeal and this past year I have started adding fresh berries to my oatmeal. With winter coming on I have been having a hard time finding blueberries at a reasonable price...

    Sometimes you can wait over an hour for that much desire shower or as is usually the case they are immediately ready for you to use. You can always ask for an extra towel and many places will give a girl two towels which is nice.

    This time of year is awesome to see and experience with the leaves changing and the weather fighting the onset of freezing temperatures.

    This time of year we can have our winter coat on in the morning and be looking for our shorts by the evening.
