Got my Taxes done in record time, with refunds to boot :clapping-happy:

Amazing how fast it is to do, when all the numbers were already generated, and kept track of, by my accounting program throughout the year.

Cheers to keeping good records...

No tax hair this year :cool:

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. It's your vote to do with as you wish. I wholeheartedly agree, the candidates for the highest office haven't been the best this country has to offer. I don't think the two party system works as effectively as it used to. Obstuctionist politics rules.

Not that I'm keeping score but when does your pot get stirred counterclockwise? Where are those Trump cartoons? Don't be bashful ...

9/11..? Why 9/11?

btw ... I was in Manhattan on 9/11 and I'm in Queens now; delivery tomorrow morning. I'm having some very tasty Bangladeshi/Indian food at a late night dive in Jackson Heights. I was tempted to ask them for a Corona .. lol I got chai.

This fateful night looks a little different in the rear view mirror .....
Ya know that hospital in NYC they've been mentioning on the news ... Elmhurst Hospital? This place I ate at is 0.3 mi away from it ... a 5 min walk. The location is right at the intersection of Jackson Heights, Woodside and Elmhurst.
I rolled into Queens on Wed night, stayed in the area until Friday.
Dodged a bullet.
Washing hands and keeping spatial distance actually works.

Thanks, M, for the update on WOM, sad as it was. I enjoyed "riding" with them as they traveled all over, more places than a lot of us who tend to run the same highways repeatedly. I guess he bolted away from that.

To speak to one of the items WOM mentioned, I too wonder if any of you are running and how much?

I'm sitting at home weighing chances of a load if I go out, where to go, how long before my deposits for company costs, insurance, etc, get too low, vs. getting and spreading the bug. Should I violate CDC guidelines and common sense and sit healthy for a week in Noload, USA when I could be doing my patriotic duty by self-isolating with my tv remote in a recliner next to my refrigerator? Anybody?

Completely up to you .....
Keep in mind, you are considered an essential service and therefore can legally operate.
I'm staying home for a little while. It's Spring, plenty of chores to do ...

I’m still working during this virus. I’m not expediting anymore but I’ll start posting my loads! Picked up Friday in Georgia and delivered Sunday evening in bowling green. Picked up Sunday night in Evansville,IN and delivered in Edison,NJ today. Picked up 80 miles away in NY today and headed to Nashville!

I'm running as much as I ever did, locally. Voluntarily I stopped border crossing.

Looks like my minimum workload is more than the Canadian bailout. Maybe I can collect it anyway, since it's a huge reduction in my income.

With 2 people in the household that have nearly no immune system, I'm only taking orders where I can see just 1 person at both ends and control their distance and touching the freight. I have disposable gloves as well.

Warehouse situations and public deliveries can wait for someone else.
