You're right, they'd tow it with the front wheels on the ground in park

After spraypainting the sides and wheels with orange highway paint to make sure it was visible. Safety first, man.

Otherwise we have to get an admin to change the setting back and you'll be stuck looking at a mobile skin on every computer you log into. But I'm going to make you wait and sweat it out ......... because I warned you

Sure do!




So after not hearing anything since Monday from my super, other than he was on vacation, I decided to just drive up there and talk to the business manager to see what's going on. He apologized and said that he couldn't split the loads this week(or last) but he said to come in on Tuesday and he'll get me on a truck. While I was there I picked up my first check from them. So nice of a feeling to have a 'work for pay' check again! It was for the training I went through 2 weeks ago so it is a HUGE help right now! I also picked up a box with my uniforms, jackets and hat so now I'm getting pumped to get this started. I'm hoping everything goes as planned and I can get on my truck Tuesday. It actually works out being that I have been sick as a dog for the last couple days. Maybe we can move onward and UPWARD from here

Thanks guys. Being sick really does suck, but I'm about 2/3 the way through my medicine and today was at least good enough that I felt capable enough to drive on the highway. Every day gets a little better.

I saw a Rose Mist Mercury Sable today! It even had the factory Rose Mist spoiler. Not sure how rare that combo was. I know it wasn't as rare as the SHO, but it's still quite a sight in the salt belt almost 20 years later. It was a bit rough (the clearcoat was giving up the ghost in large swaths on in some spots), but it was running and driving

Wish I could have snapped a pic, but I was driving.
