George & Wendy Show
Wendy responds to an editorial in the news recently that heaped scorn on truckers and the industry.
"Just another day in trucking. A crappy one. But that's OK because it still beats night shift at a nursing home, and we both woke up breathing again. So there's that."
"We're back to idle chit-chat in the truck. Idle chit-chat is an art, developed by the elders of the tribes and passed down as a method to pass time until the great ship comes to take us away."
Wendy on turning 46, the age her father passed: "This year, I've decided to be happy. Being happy is probably the one thing my Dad would tell me to be, if I could talk to him one more time."
Updates from Ohio: "I'm not making a statement about the death penalty here -- I'm just saying we probably should have left well enough alone and kept the method of termination the same as its been for many years."
In which Wendy has crocheted a scarf to keep her hands busy after quitting smoking and is "vaping on with the rest of the Borg... Somebody save me from the trendiness..."
Wendy and George contemplate interior truck modifications: "We at least need dart guns for potential Sasquatch sightings, right?"
"How awesome will it be to ride down the road with the delicious aroma of crock-pot roast wafting around?" If you have recommendations for Wendy for recipes/logistics of in-cab cooking, send them in!
