    How did you do that, Jay?
    No Q, no air horns - we're an all electronic outfit, you see. The crosslays are something they "threw in" at no extra charge. I hate loading (and unloading) the high crosslays on our other truck. This should be real nice. It was originally bid with the standard crosslays up top. Notice the SNOW on the ground? Hope its all gone by Sunday.

    Am I seeing things or did Jay just have triplets?
    Jack; you showed your truck's best side...
    'Cause from the side, it looks like a FREIGHTLINER!
    MIKEY; you're spending too much time in Loozyanna!
    It's deer season; how can it be boring driving through Illinois?
    Nice lookin' rig, Jack. Looks like it was well-planned.
    Still working on getting the Illinois grant monies released.
    Stay tuned.

    I HATE deer.. I hit one 5 years ago with the meat wagon on the way to the hospital. The deer didnt make it and I am a nervous wreck during horny deer time.

    Jack, nice truck. Stop by Pearl City on your way back with it. I'd like to see what a new truck looks like in our station. That'll be the ONLY chance to see a new one here.
    Mikey, I've made the I-57 round trip twice since Aug 1st. Now my blond daughter decides to go back to SIU in January, so I get to do it again

    Mike:
    I am a firm believer in the community college approach. Cheaper tuition and a much shorter commute. AND you support your local economy. You can live with mom and pop while you learn. No wild parties. An atmosphere conducive to learning. Wait; did you say she is going back to SIU? Oh; totally opposite thoughts on that.
    Nevermind.

    SIU - my alma mater. I commutted for 2 years to the Vocational Technical Institute. My wife lived down there. If not for SIU, I may still be single. My daughter went there for 2 or 2 1/2 years, totally a waste of time, My son went there for a year before he decided he really didn't want to do that anymore. He did get his FFII at a JC. Sure spent a lot of money on SIU that didn't help at all. Encouraging, huh Cap?

    My alma mater too. My wife's too. Actually lived in Marion for a year or so after graduating and we loved it down there. Decided to move back home to be closer to family after my son was born. Has anybody noticed the SIU football team? I believe they are 9-0 and ranked #3 in the country in 1AA or so I've heard. They would probably beat U of I! Wait, U of I couldn't beat a Pop Warner team! Sorry about that. Couldn't help myself. After all of the years of getting ridiculed by my U of I buds I had to take a shot while I had the chance!

    Nice truck Jack. I bet you guys are excited!

    What: assuming that we might get some snow this winter, you aren't plowing any?
    Admit it; you need extra money so you can play in that Quad City Indoor Golf League.
    On the second count; it's the operator!
    Oh and welcome back after your long absence.

    So what are you saying, your other job didn't care about providing competent pt. care, with happy, well paid employees?

    I am personally appalled at that thought.

    Oh, never mind. I quit becuase of the same reason.
    Gripe on


    Open shots at Ty. Did your alcohol stream convert back to blood?

    West of us is Alpha, dummy!
    Admit it; you saw the writing on the wall.
    Did I tell you that I use to work with your former human resources manager?
    Now; there's a story or two.
    Glad you remember how to work a computer.

    Default Writing on the wall is right!!

    CR the writing is on the wall at the other place. I'm glad I could see through the smoke that is being blown up my former co-workers a--. I need to get with you for some of those stories on that HR person.

    Wub the conversion process has pretty much completed and all of the blood has returned to my alcohol system.
