Lost Dancer in Memphis
Dave was distracted, but not by the noise around him. The grill cook rattled his utensils like a mad jazz drummer. The dish washer clattered away at a huge pile from the morning rush. Chit chat and rumor buzzed amongst the remaining booths. It was mid morni...

Hiatus
I am in Michigan for several months, helping the family. Emma is buttoned up and waiting for me in Ft. Pierce. Here's hoping that there are no major storms through the end of the hurricane season. Thanks for your support. See you soon.

The Cop and the Corn
I’ve written before about the DOT regulated hours I have to track as a truck driver. I can drive for eleven hours a day, but once I start, I have just fourteen hours of on-duty time in which to drive the eleven. A ten hour break resets these clocks. I just ...

I Can't Do This Anymore!
Well … I can't do it this*way anymore. I got off the road last October and took what I thought was a part-time job. Turns out that we weren’t using the phrase ‘part-time’ in the same way. They called me PT because they couldn’t guarantee me 40 hours. Howe...
