    Good Sunday Morning Homies....WD and I are busy,busy this morning getting ready for a trip to some new territory. Look Out Peach State,we are headed your way. It should be exciting with New watering holes for WD and New highways and construction for me. It should be fun. Hope you all are having a Great Weekend.

      Happy Sunday! Are you shopping for a new route to replace one of your others? Hot-Lanta is my kinda town (but I'd love to visit Savannah someday).

        Hey Sista'.....My old company shut down our division so Blue,WD and I will now be pulling pumpkin orange trailers from Houston to Hotlanta. I told JBJ I can now get some GOOD Boiled peanuts for a change. I should be able to make 3 turns a week and still have a day and a half at home. The pay is better too, which is a good thing. How's things in The Sunshine State?

          Hey Bro! I'm listening to Pandora playing "Funky Cold Medina" just as I saw your post. ~_~ Interesting. Hubby all "set to go and cut the lawn."

          Punkin orange trailers, eh? What're you haulin'? Punkins or was that too obvious? BTW, what makes a bolled peanut "good?"

          I didn't realize you were shutdown like that, man. ))))hugs(((( Congratulations on finding a better way to make more $$$. Love the American way.

          Did the lawn thing this morning. Kept hearing voices from within the old company about shutdowns looming so I had already put out feelers. A Good boiled peanut is made with special water and secret ingredients. Georgia's always tasted better to me for some reason. Have a Great week and will check on everyone when I can. Stay safe and knarly. :)))

          Special water? Is that like the water they use in NY to make pizza? I've heard, I've experienced and I believe. *bows head penitently*

          You are missed very much, Bro. Drive safely my friend.

    Boo-Yah! Just got listed in the Washington Business Journal as one of the top 50 places to work in DC.

    I'm on the far right of the picture.

    Just saw a quote that I really like and wanted to share here: “The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.”

      I like that. I think both of us have usually been pretty good at blazing our own paths. Not always easy, but I think we're both stronger for it.

        I'm having semantic issues this fine morning. What's better: everyone's inner journey or everyone's inner journeys?

        June 1, 2012 at 11:35 am |
        • Socrates™@MicheleG

          Both are correct, in that ouor life is really a long, introspective journey, as we travel from birth to the hereafter, and upon wich we take many smaller, interconnected journies into our work, relationships and interests.

          June 1, 2012 at 11:55 am |
        • MicheleG™

          Thank you!

          I was thinking about the several journeys we all take, either simultaneously or consecutively, and how those intersect and affect the same kinds of journeys in others we meet along the way.......

    It's Friday and it's RAINING! There's so much rain in the forecast that there's a flood watch until midnight tonight! Fun...

    In other news, I just found out about (and joined) this thing called The (RED)RUSH GAMES. Basically playing video games against people in an effort to raise money to combat AIDS in Africa. Since I got the whole of next week without my bro and his wife, I'm going to take advantage of that! =)
