And I find this perfectly acceptable.

He seems to be doing good and healing up well from his surgery.

Been back with me 2 days now.

Missed my buddy so much.

Interesting hearing him speak and seeing all of the gear he has sitting around.

Dogs start as puppies, full of silliness with wagging tails and glowing eyes and immediately they worm their way into your heart.

You raise them right, you give them structure, but most of all you give them love and puppies turn into dogs.

Dogs become companions.

Fuzzy companions become family.

Then you get that call. The one that says we were trying to reach you

Corpus Christi is the area I have my eye on as well. Seems like a combination of the advantages of Texas and Florida.

Well, I have a Detroit series 60 (hey, company truck) and a 10-speed autoshift... and I carry a lot of heavy loads. Hills Science Diet is a big customer of ours and a typical pet food load is anywhere from 40-45,000lbs.

A lot of drivers have negative things to say about the auto-shift but I have to tell ya... I love it. It may be "tedious" going up and down hills in places like WV but when I thought about what I said it almost seemed stupid. I set the cruise, turn on the engine brake and it takes care of the rest. If it has to drop to 9,8.7 whatever while climbing, it does so itself and I don't have to touch anything. When I crest and begin to descend I can move the paddle into "L" and that'll hold it back into 9th on the way down so I rarely have to touch the brakes. So in retrospect I suppose I should shut the fuck up about it since that's pretty darn easy.

If it were my truck, I'd get myself an APU. But for the time being driving theirs... I'm just going to idle. Or send them my bills for Idle-Aire locations.
