    You know, I've had success and felt satisfaction backing a truck into a very tight spot in a crowded truck stop at night in bad weather, but there is nothing like getting a monster hug from a 3-year old granddaughter when I pulled up to their house.

    I think I'm going to like this.

    I been loving the last month or so. Wife watches one of grandsons during the week and most Saturdays till noon. He wants to call and talk to me when he gets up and before bed everyday. Then when I make it home get a hug that you'd think he was trying to choke a grizzly out. It's the Best feeling in the world.

    You gave up trucking for family? What the hell is right with you? I bet the grand babies are much more fun! Keep in touch with us, and congrats on the promotion!

    That is awesome! I'm sure your daughter is very grateful! Childcare is expensive & you can't always trust someone because they have a piece of paper! Enjoy those babies & time with your daughter! Don't be a stranger here!
     
    tsavory and DenaliDad Thank this.
