Back In The Saddle

Took on another part time (3 days a week) job. With the improved economy, fewer people are behind on their mortgages, so I’m getting less work. (Thanks, President Trump).

There are some upcoming expenses and I avoid all debt so this move, for me, makes financial sense.

The job is driving the big Nissan van with up to seven drivers to a rally point near the Wyoming border. It is a round trip of 130 miles and takes about 3 ½ hours. These drivers operate big tankers that collect oil drilling waste and take the waste to a processing plant.

The plan is to do the job for three months this summer. Come winter and I am gone. Pays $15 an hour.

I’ll still keep the mortgage gig.

Yeah, yeah, at 75 I should be ‘retired’. Fuck that, I’ll go until I drop.

With those drivers there should be some interesting stories (lies) to entertain you. Have fun.

Nah, they all take a nap.

I hope all of the drivers like 'your music'.

They all seem to have headsets. I don't listen to music while driving (personal quirk) unless going through Nashville and tune in WSM. Do listen to teh occasional audio book.

Agreed, busy is good! Drive safe, as always!

Keeps me out of the bars.

Drive safe, and watch out for wildlife.

And then I remembered who I was saying that to here!

"Extra" pocket money is always a good thing.

Good advice for anyone.

Hmm...rallying point up by Wyoming. Sounds suspicious. Did you watch Clint Eastwood's The Mule? LOL. BTW working keeps us young and alive and less broken down. Gotta keep moving, right?

Well done, ride on. Looks like I'm in the *drop option too. Oh well, go out at the Altar.

County has 23,000 oil/gas wells.

My late son's father in law, my age, is doing missionary work in Panama. Always work for those who will work.
