    This Columbus Day, let's celebrate by walking into a stranger's house and declaring "We live here now!"

      I moved a little last night. Now I'm close to where I want to be. Hope for something today and finish out my week strong, since Mr. E and others are saying that it's been a busy weekend! If not ill take a Monday load. LOL

      Here at the shipper and after fighting this heavy morning traffic, was told that the load isn't ready and we start loading between 2pm to 4pm. LOL. Still waiting on the return phone call!

      Well after waiting a hour for a answer, they decided to go ahead and load me. The consignee was needing this shipment asap! Now unloaded and here at Raising Canes and I'm #2. Time to eat and figure what I want to do.

      I decided to DH back. Normally I would have stayed, but needed to take care of some business where I was at. Got back in service around 11:30am. No calls yet and I'm #2. Ready to hit the Pilot and see whats going on there.

      Yes indeed! Just watched the game. Defense has been kicking butts this season. Abdullah so close to getting that 100 yard rushing game off their backs, hope he's ok.

      In Laredo.

      Already a great week, so anything else will be a bonus

      What started as a leisurely trip, turned into a rush load as it turned critical in route. Arrived 5 hrs before my new time.

      DH Laredo to San Antonio for load to Midland TX.

      Loaded up. Figured good time to eat and let traffic die down a little.
      Made out really good coming in at peak rush time.

      About to set sail

      Got the load off way early and the consignee very happy! Before I got unloaded got pre-planned on a load that picks up 17 miles away from the consignee for a Thursday pickup!
