It's been 9 years today. I still think about Jennifer every day. She made me a better person. It doesn't hurt the way it used to, but it still hurts. Some things you just can't change, dead is dead.

Maintenance took my truck hostage yesterday, doing a PM & fixing this & that. The new front shocks are nice. My co-driver hasn't shown up yet, should have been here yesterday morning, looks like he abandoned ship. Just ran some city work today. If he's not here in the morning, I'll be looking for a new co. Not the way to make money. :?

Samantha fell asleep in my arms today. It's going to be tough to drive away from that. Unfortunately, I have to. It's part of being a trucker.

I have to be at work Monday morning. I'm heading back Sunday afternoon to get the truck serviced, and get a good nights sleep before going on duty Monday morning. On the way home Friday night I was stopped at a weigh station & inspected. That's when I found out my company didn't file my Medical Certificate info with the DMV. They were cooler than they needed to be about it. The CHP let me go, and I took care of the problem while I was home.

After almost 7 weeks I finally made it home.:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

Miss Rebekah loves her Goldfish. Her shirt, from her Uncle Drew, says: 'I'm the little niece of a U.S. soldier'

Her little sis Samantha is due to be born tomorrow morning. I can't wait! I love her already & I plan on spoiling her rotten.:wink: I can only imagine what my bro is going through. :shock:

As many of you know, I'm a member of WidowNet, an online support group for widows & widowers. Once a month a group of us have a lunch GTG (Get ToGether) in SoCal. I was finally able to make it again. We've been doing this in SoCal since January 2000.

Firefox & Thunderbird

I knew this day was coming. If you can believe it, I was still using Netscape Navigator 7.2 for most of my internet browsing & as my email client. Compared to IE (Microsoft Internet Explorer) Navigator was much more stable, fault tolerant and had a cleaner & easier to use interface. Navigator didn't have all those unused toolbars at the top of the window that you couldn't get rid of.

Alas, more & more web sites had new features that wouldn't work. Netscape no longer supports Navigator, so it's time to change. :?

After downloading the Mozilla Firefox browser and Thunderbird email client, I installed them without a hitch. In fact they both automatically imported everything from Netscape! 8) All my bookmarks, saved passwords, history, email addys, accounts, folders & filters. Both programs even kinda look the same, and they allow you to get rid of toolbars that you don't use, to clean up your window. :mrgreen:

As I type this, Firefox is automatically spell checking, underlining suspicious words in red. Very cool! 8)8)

Impatiently waiting for my next load. One more load to get me to Fontana, then I GO HOME!

It's been almost 7 weeks this time. Had to schedule it so I could be home when my niece Samantha is going to be born! :mrgreen:8):mrgreen:

If you haven't seen the movie There Will Be Blood, you're missing something good! :) Very few movies can get away with going 14 minutes before the first line of dialog is said. You have to watch it a few times to catch all the details.

Sitting in Nogales, AZ. Got here about 0315 this morning. They don't open till 1000. :? As long as I get home on time, I don't care.

Sitting in Barstow, CA right now. It's where we are switching drivers. Our load can't deliver before 0800 tomorrow morning, so we're sitting here so I don't start my '14 hour clock' and get my hours messed up.

If you are on, I'm tws1969. 8)
