I know that there are several posts about “home time”, but when you are gone most of the time, home time is special. I don’t have the luxury of going home every day after work. Nor do I have the extreme luxury of having a weekend off each week (at home). My “home time” is…
Why I Hate Holidays
Paul Turner, 3 July 2018 Years ago, I loved the holidays. Now, I hate them. I love spending time with my family. Holidays allow all of us to have that extra time with them. I’m not sure my family really knows how much I love spending time with them during the holidays, but I really…
A Day Off
I am home today. It doesn’t happen often enough, but when it does, I can’t tell you how happy I am to be home. I have always loved being at home. For me to work as an over the road, long haul truck driver, is way out of my character, because of how much I…
COOLPIX S210 from Nikon
COOLPIX S210 from Nikon. I have been needing a camera since I misplaced my last one. So, I found that I could trade my Magellan GPS for a Nikon CoolPix S210. All I’ve got to do now is get a battery for it. I guess I can say… ‘Merry Christmas to me’… Ha Ha Ha……
Home for the Holidays!
After 18 days on the road, I made it back to the house around 8:30pm last night. Pugsly was very happy to see me. He did his Dino impersonation on me and that’s always fun. I watched a little bit of “Huckleberry Finn” on the Turner Movie Classics channel with Pat. Kathy was at work,…
Visit with Matt

Mike at work. Had to share this one!
I just got a photo of Mike at work. I had to share this photo! I told him that ‘he’s looking good!’
A Wonderful Thanksgiving
My Thanksgiving holiday has been fantastic. I got to visit my wife’s family on Thanksgiving day (along with Mike, Cyndee and little Charlie). It was a great day with some good food and lots of great conversations. Friday, Kathy and I drove down to Willis, TX and picked up Matt, then continued on to Friendswood,…
Vacation Coming Up! Time With Family!
Woo Hoo! I’m am going to have 5 days away from the truck! I am so excited, I’m wondering if Christmas is coming early!!! I get to spend a day on some things I’ve been wanting to do at home, then the next day is Thanksgiving with family. How good is that? Then, on Friday,…
Hanging with Papa!
I got home today for a short stay. I’m leaving in the morning for a day run to Bryan, TX. Kathy keeps little Charlie, our grandson, on Monday and Tuesday’s and when we got home, he was my little shadow for about an hour until I had to take a nap. He sure does like…
