    I got home yesterday at 8:30am. I've been steady cleaning up around my house and property from the 12 inches of rain we had this past week. What a mess. My neighbor had a lightning strike on a group of his palm trees that are between his house and mine. He lost 2 beautiful tall healthy palms and from what I can see the bolt of lightning took out my salt cell on my pool. I took it apart, brought it to my pool store and $625 later we are back enjoying the pool. I just spent the better part of the day pressure cleaning my side walk, driveway and storm culverts around my house and my neighbors, he's disabled and confined to a wheel chair so I figured I would help my neighbor out. They are great neighbors, he is a retired Nasa engineer, actually, the true meaning of a rocket scientist.

    I get to spend most of the day home on Monday, I load at the brewery in Jacksonville at 9pm Monday night then deliver in Columbia SC early Tuesday morning, then drop and hook in Greenville going to Mt. Top Pa for late Tuesday night.

    if it wasnt for the good bunch of calex drivers you get to sit there with it would be a really boring time... sat in brooklyn for 18 hours but we had fun checking out the "scenery" lol. have to do it for one more turn ...

    Good crew of shuttle drivers from Calex there. Always ready to help with advice or just to shoot the #### while waiting, but....the local "scenery" is THE best part about sitting at Boar's Head in Brooklyn.

    I grew up in that "scenery", I've been done with it for 31 years and have no intention of ever sight seeing there again.

    well I've had 2 CA turns since I've been on here last and in between those 2 runs I had 3 restart breaks in 1 week. I don't really have anything good to say at this time except A big THANK U to Johnboy for all the help u have given me since I've been here, and U too Rob. 3 weeks in a row away from my kids is getting very hard, but i'm still hoping Calex can work with me better soon. And hey guys always know where ur truck key is when u go home

    Long weekend at the house. I had to pressure clean every inch of the sidewalk, culvert and street around my house when the water that was left from the storm last week finally drained away. What a mess. I can't wait to leave and get some rest.....not!
