Most of us who have been on the big road for any time at all will know what it''s like to be sick with nobody to take care of us. It''s a very depressing time and has happened to me on more than one occasion. Getting the Flu or even a simple cold can leave you feeling low; for me suffering a Gall Bladder failure had to be the worst although a Kidney Stone wasn't much fun I can tell you.
With technology gaining ground every day we are seeing more computer systems included in vehicles than ever before. It's kinda obvious that this would happen after all, when Dunlop invented pneumatic tires their inclusion in every kind of vehicle imaginable would follow. Computer systems in four wheelers was an obvious step and now those bits of electronic genius are in Big Rigs too.
Those who have been around CFI for a while will know that Ellen and I invite our Drivers, those stuck in Joplin for Thanksgiving, to our home for Thanksgiving dinner. This is a very relaxed, buffet style Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. We have Turkey, of course, Ham and Lamb which is my favorite.
