Croc's Blog

I bought a new computer a few months back and right away noticed that it has a problem, it doesn't know how to spell! I don't mean that it doesn't tell me if I spell something wrong it does that just fine. Perhaps a better way to describe the problem is that it doesn't pay attention to what keys I press. I might have typed an 'a' but that doesn't mean it will not produce a 'c'. In fact this example is exactly what it did a moment ago.

"Rain, rain go away, come again another day." It was another wet weekend but somewhere in between rain showers I was able to get out on the mower and cut the grass high rather than damage it since it was still a little wet. Where we live the city sends us a nastygram if the grass gets too high so we have to stay up with it. This week out we are trying to avoid a nastygram from the Department of Transportation because the Blitz is right around the corner.

April showers have continued into May except that these ain't showers, need a new bucket? It was coming down in buckets today so there are plenty just laying around for those who need them - should put the hardware store out of business.

Weather wise it has been a rough week. During our runs I have been woken twice by the sound of rain slamming against the outside of the truck and have spent time driving through the rain which also woke Ellen.

Ellen and I are fortunate enough to enjoy a Dedicated Run. For those who don't know what that is; Drivers, especially Driver Teams can occasionally be given a load to haul from one place to the other and back again - always the same customer - always the same route. That is a dedicated run.

We run a dedicated lane between Laredo, Texas and Salem, Illinois with a break at the weekend at home in Joplin but hopefully it is still interesting even though we limit our travels.
