      $135.00 for 5.7 miles to Lowes to return unused material for flooring and backsplash. Way to start out the month!!!

      That’s it for me- new roof, new siding, new brick chimney, new carpet, new kitchen floor, new backsplash, new paint inside and out. Now if only my wife can get a new me.

      Nope. Haven’t worked in about 14 months. Money management pays off.

      Another beautiful day of slow or no freight as in maybe there has been freight but must be going for rates that I wont consider starting the truck for. I wish these bottom feeders would hurry up and go broke so we can get back to normal.

      Is it possible that we have a new breed of bottom feeders ?
      In the old days , they’d go broke and go away.
      It seems the new breed prospers by having reduced expectations. They operate cheaper, sometimes by skirting the law.

      Talked to a guy last week who was bragging about making 80 cents no FSC or DH. Maybe too many guys don't know what good money is now. Shippers are paying more and more now.....so someone is making it.

      It gives me a chuckle that he took pride in excelling in a job “any uneducated peon” could do.
