    It’s Ag Exempt mode time.
    Now I did go ahead and do a much needed 30...
    Had two big Cajun Turkey sandwiches, and watched a knight and a swift back beside each other.
    I had time to prepare, fix, eat, and return to the fridge for a cold soda, knight beat swift by 3 pull ups, and about 2.2 minutes

    I don’t know what’s worse, too little or too much. Neither's any good. I’m still upside down. Up all night, slept from 9 am till 4 pm. I get back to work, it will be 3 am till noon at the latest, while on a run. Otherwise I’ll deliver, pick up, crash out till it’s dark. Then I creep out, and avoid all the idiots on the road. Much rather run at night. Looking forward to my favorite seafood in Hammond for lunch on Wednesday. And a Truck wash at the Petro Blue Beacon.

    There's one particularly Satanic group that goes between there and Calexico.

    Truck 2 is going to be empty in Calexico and one called. I let her talk to The OM.
    And The OM was like-

    Hear no evil, don't you
    See no evil, don't you
    Lay no evil down on me

    And I heard her go," Now be reasonable....."

    And The OM was like-

    SPEAK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
    THINK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
    PLAY WITH EVIL, 'CAUSE I'M FREE
    DON'T YOU LAY YOUR EVIL DOWN ON ME

    So then I just hung up the phone.

    I bet it’s sleep apnea, they say everyone that has ever drove a truck had it, even if only drove 1 day.
    Statistics can’t lie, they must’ve done another billion dollar study.

    Kinda reminds me of The OM up on the dash when we took that load to the new FBI regional office in Idaho.

    Well...
    According to the Missouri DOT officer.
    Highway 63 closed at Koshkonog, Mo, multi car pileup, along with a pickup & horse trailer, helicopter is on the way..
    Aren’t we lucky.

    What are the chances that the horse trailer that was 15 over blew a tire?

    1/10?
    I don’t know, supposed to be in the speed drop zone, but it drops from 65 right in there to either 50 or 55, no one usually checks speed
