    Delivered a Hill Phoenix to a Family Dollar in Nashville this morning. Went to make the turn onto the street to the store and four cop cars with lights on, two on either side of the street….this can’t be good but got by and backed into the driveway and one of them stopped traffic for me which was nice considering it was busy even at 0400…..ripped the driver side mudflap off being the driveway was inclined and the flap longer than it should have been got caught under the tandems. I tried moving forward and back to try and not rip it but couldn’t so stopped at Baxter Loves for a new mudflap. Decided to not wait the two hrs being my 14 caught up and put the mudflap on myself with new hardware….never again, my back is killing me….I need to get a cordless drill and sockets and good wrenches, crescent wrenches were a pain to use. Got deadheaded back to Wytheville cuz I guess Gatorade needed my empty. Gatorade for West Jefferson tomorrow. Finally kicked back with my Tens Unit the VA gave me and a couple Motrin. 15 hour day do to all the carnage on 40 and 81 in Tn today with the rain. Few bad accidents and a Pam rolled over in one of the parking areas due to parking on soft ground on the edge of the ramp.

    Get a bungee cord and wrap it around the the bracket with the mud flap in it.
    That’s what we use to do when we delivered to farms.

    Let’s all take a moment and reflect on that day 21 years ago. We all came together that day, today should be a day of reflection. God Bless the USA.

    I can not believe this was 21 years ago. I remember where I was the first I heard about it. I was a sophomore in high school and was putting cologne in my locker from smoking in the bathroom and my buddy came running up saying “dude a plane just hit a building in New York”. I thought it was some prop plane accident thing. First period the teacher had the tv on and it was then the “oh ####” this wasn’t some accident realization started to unfurl. A surreal day to day the least.

    I was on vacation but in town. My Desk Sergeant called me and asked if I could come down to the Police Station. It was a full house. 2 and3 cops in each patrol car.

    I was about a month into a new job at a newly opened heavy equipment dealer.We were stocking the warehouse, when the receptionist came out and said a plane had hit the WTC. She had a small TV behind her desk, so we went in and watched it unfold.
