And I did not want to go in the hole any more with the truck..... sooooooo... with the help of Tif and Cary my truck got emptied and I returned it yesterday and am no longer in the trucking industry. This in turn has brought on mixed feelings. I love driving and see the road and meeting folks....and having a different sunrise and sunset every day....but that can only go on for so long. I have gotten over the hump of the "giving up on driving"....so now for the next leg of this life experience....getting to learn how to be a gran'pa....and actually getting to slow down on my terms.
And two of those "terms" are sitting on my chest above....it is Gramps time! A little hard for a workaholic to slow down....but getting there.....and the other three are in Alabama...And I will be headed for there in a couple of months....have to get my retirement house settled first and a little cash and then to the "Heart of Dixie" we go!!!
And then there are those kids that are still in the process of getting to the "big boy stage"!!!! But I think they will all make it yet!!!
