Got to speak with the driver today and he was headed to Omaha for a concert next week.
Had this truck in my lot the other day and it made me laugh.
All I can remember is Poor Jim kept getting all the dirty jobs, Jim go grab that alligator!
Also had a cool Celtic Rock Band in the other day Cleghorn.
Everything is going well for Laila and I, and I plan on posting more in future.
We do have next cruise booked for Halloween week out of New Orleans, I plan on using the Bazillion hotel points I have earned to get us a nice evening in New Orleans before we head out.
I am still here. Picture above is from my drive home from Amarillo last Monday,
Since the beginning of April I have been assigned to my permanent location in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Laila will be joining me in mid July as we move in to our new home in Ardmore.
So we will be located halfway between Dallas and Oklahoma City. By the way if you are from Oklahoma, OKC is always just referred to as “The City”. This confused me at first and painted me as an outsider when somebody would say I am going to the city and I would ask what city.
I am very glad that after over 9 months living in hotels, I will have my bride by my side and a house to relax in. I am also sad to be leaving Georgia after over 11 years. Other than my time growing up in Houston it is the longest I have lived anywhere. North Georgia is a beautiful place to live and I wouldn’t mind living there again.
So now that everyone knows what the plan is, I hope to start posting more.
So today I am traveling home for a much needed conjugal visit.
I am officially a hotel bitch. I spent the last few days working in Ardmore, Oklahoma at a Candlewood Suites. I kind of wish that Greenville, Texas where I have spent most of my time had one. Read the rest of this entry »
Above is what my car looked like when I walked out of work at 10:30 PM Christmas night.
As a trade off for getting a week off from work I had to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas night. Both days were crazy at work with travelers. My Christmas dinner consisted of a hot dog and what I lovingly call a turdburger, It is a cheeseburger link that looks like a turd. It does taste a lot better than it looks. I would always rather have something that tastes better than it looks rather than vice versa. Texas experienced a rare white Christmas as it began blowing sideways around 2 PM. This posed a problem as I was supposed to leave the next morning to pick up kids in Springfield, Missouri. I never made it to Springfield. Read the rest of this entry »
I saw Santa today! In Ardmore, Oklahoma, no less.
I was at work today when I saw a gentleman that looked amazingly like Santa. He was wearing red shorts, so it had to be him.
He was in large tour bus touting Macy’s Santa.
He got in my line and the person in front of him asked how I was doing. I replied “I am very good and have been very good all year!” The folks in line all laughed. I thought about it and being the Macy’s Santa has to be the ultimate Santa job. In fact if he was promoted form his current position he would be Santa.
So Santa knows I have been good, so I got that going for me!
By the way, Santa eats Cheetos and the bus driver said he would put in a good word with Santa for me!
Getting ready to head south to spend a few days with the folks.
I hate moving day, I have accumulated too many things and it takes a whole luggage cart to move my stuff.
It’s going to be a quick turn a round as I have to be in Ardmore, Oklahoma Sunday night.
Still waiting to find a final destination, landing spot, new home.
Still looking good and feeling good.
I am currently in Greenville, TX. Packing up and getting ready to head South and see Nana and Papa for the weekend. The plan for obvious reasons is to get a haircut and make chicken and dumplings, but not at the same time.
Since last update I finished my time in Louissanna, spent a few days learning about food safety in Fort Worth and worked the last few in days in Caddo Mills, TX.
We are getting closer to the point where I am told where my home should be for the next year at least.
I know I have now been on the road a little bit too long. When I was home last I had forgotten my preferred position of shower for proper temperature. Also my key quit working at hotel I am at and when they asked me my room number I said 404 and they looked at me strange as the hotel only has 3 floors. Oops that was last week’s room number.
Looking forward to being out of a hotel for a few days at least.
Hey we got a new (used) seat for our lot sweeper. The name on back is a brand I am told and not indicative of the character of the driver.
So tomorrow morning I get to head back to Georgia. I am very excited as it has been 30 days since the last time I saw the wife. Just one day too late for her birthday darn it.
When I return I will be finishing my training in Shreveport and wait to be told where my next assignment will be. I am told it will be in the DFW area if the plan holds to form.
