George & Wendy Show
Last night Wendy's home town council voted down the restrictive two-hour truck parking ordinance they'd approved just two weeks prior. Here's why.
“I'll be quiet forever when the evil monkey brutally murders me. Oh look, is that an ultralight? Dang, it's awful cold for an ultralight.”
"We've seen some weird things on flatbeds. Hell, we've seen some weird things strapped to four-wheelers, like the giant hammerhead shark we saw on the roof of a Honda Accord...."
"I don't know if any of you noticed, but Earth was recently invaded openly by aliens in the form of giant meteorites... If you're looking for me, I'll be over here under the catwalk in the fetal position."
George to Wendy: "“If you think I'm going to give you a knife to cut up a stolen lemon while I'm driving, you're crazier than I thought you were.”
Wendy Parker on her hometown's ban of truck parking: "Set a precedent for the rest of the country. Find a way to not only make it work, find a way to make it work for both the trucker and the city."
Wendy and George ponder home and Sunday school on a run up I-75 from near where Wendy was raised in Georgia to deliver in Ohio, their current home.
Be careful what you put in your mouth on a night haul on a strange route.
