    So I called the transmission shop. I had to find out when it may be repaired. The owner said they will inspect it prior to the work day and then get authorization. I replied the authorization is there, tho I need to know the cost so I can have the money ready. The owner replied "I wish I had more customers like you, they all seem to want to haggle the price". I replied "I didnt just greenlight you to soak me. It is useless to me with a weak transmission". He laughed, I laughed. He said he will call sometime this week.

    As I got the process of changing the assembly out the heavens opened giving me a total soaking. That being said, my truck is able to pass inspection again. 20210608_085448.jpg

    Ok.
    It looks like I’m going to be off today, maybe even tomorrow, but I’ve got a couple set for Thursday and Friday,
    If they accept my bid on a load, could have one today that delivers tomorrow, but I bet I’ll be undercut, but I didn’t start a nonprofit organization.

    Anyhow, I’m thinking for lunch...
    Meatloaf, fried taters...corn...Kentucky style green beans(flat) and mac and cheese, though I can’t eat it, but everyone else loves it..*mumble stupid cheese sickness*

    Considering it's a rental tractor with more damage than that I'm not spending my time/money on the fiberglass. The light was really only done this way vs the tape due to it being a DOT violation. I skated in IL when I explained to the trooper they are nationwide backorder, but I didn't like pressing my luck.

    Do you ever drop your trailer in Laredo Tx? A LS trailer to be clear.

    How bad is Memphis

    That’s right, when it comes to blues, the Delta roots beat all. Though maybe not the best. Definitely original Mississippi Fred McDowell. He’s the real deal.
