Port Gibson, NY– I’m at the yard, about ready to take a rest break as this is written. By the time it goes up, I’ll be in The Bronx making a delivery.  Had some problems with the truck, in addition to the one I already had at Indianapolis on Monday. Thankfully, nothing earth-shaking. It’s running […]

Milton, PA– I came down here last night with a load of  green beans and such. They’re unloading me as I write this. It’s cool around here today, but not yet cold, except at night. My truck is running fine.   My internet connectivity is a little screwy as I get used to the new phone. […]

I note David’s post, Pervert State University with large chunks of agreement, particularly  where he closes with… Evidently, building character is not included in the curriculum at Pervert State.

Roterdam,NY– I’m here dropping off a load of walnuts, that I brought up from Jersey. Nothing overly special to report… except that it’s been a bust few days so far. I may have something special to talk about tonight, however. Now the Slur Machine gets warmed up against Cain: Over at OTB, they’re playing the […]

Port Gibson, NY– As this is written, I’m setting up for the last outing of the week. A quick shot to Carlisle, PA, and then to Queens. And from there, I don’t know, but something to get me towards home is what I expect. We had an issue with the site yesterday. For some reason […]

Middle Village, NYC, NY– I’m back in Middle Village, awaiting an unload.  Hot down here today. I should explain my absence the last few days of last week; My truck broke down, and they had to put a new transmission in it. I suppose after 650,000 miles, it was time. The truck handles just fine […]

Me at OTB just now: Consider the scenario of capturing UBL alive. The administration is faced with a choice; They can either… a) Go through the process of a civilian trial because that was what they wanted to employ for all terror suspects, giving, as I’ve en saying all along, a platform for alQueida to […]

Rice, PA— (Along I-81, near Scranton at a rest area) Foggy here today. Accidents because of the fog, and driving is not fun, really, as a result. Oh, well. Goes with the territory. I’m headed for the Albany, NY area, then who knows? Me at OTB just now: Let’s imagine, as a data point, that […]

(East Syracuse, NY)— Came in from Carlisle, PA last night, and spent the night at Binghamton, NY. I can’t say I’m overly impressed with this truck; the steering feels a little vauge, especially when the roads are wet.
