Recently I have been going through some major changes and adjustments at work. Both the Boss and the Assistant, had both recently turned in their resignations. Lucky for me, the Assistant was convinced to stay, with a healthy pay raise and a snazzy new title. Lucky, I say, because she is the one person that every driver can count on at all times to know what is going on and to treat each driver equally. Corporate then decided to bring in a few more Chiefs to run the show. So now there is one fellow doing something....(I am not sure what), and another who had taken the Boss' position, while a third has been hired to seek out back hauls for every out going trailer. Yikes!!

What a crazy few weeks it has been since I last truly posted on here. I suppose the best way to get back on track, is to just jump right back in the middle of things. I keep thinking about the posts I have stored up mentally and the chronological order in which they should be published, but if I keep waiting for an opportune moment, they will all disappear into oblivion. So here goes...

So Terry, why have you stopped posting videos? After that "Gravy Run" vid I thought you were on your way to the next level...They are truly missed.
There are several reasons I have postponed producing any videos...The foremost being time, creativity, and the general issues I have been experiencing with my computer, editing software and the desire for a better camera. I will be back, I promise!! There was also my move back to Alabama which led me to spending more time around family, and also added for additional commute time. I could really just sum it all up by stating that life got in the way. I have had ideas for several more videos and even began the editing process, but after struggling with the software/laptop for any length of time, I would put it back on the back burner. It seems that I have been promising the new videos for a year now, and I will get back to them in time.
I do appreciate your recognition of my efforts!!
Are you a sports fan? If so which one
I am not what you would call a sports enthusiast, but there was a time when I would not miss a single broadcast of NASCAR. I have even been to several racing events, including Talladega, Atlanta, and Darlington. And let me tell you, there is nothing like trying to sit still while all that horsepower is raging around you.
As for team sports, I get pretty excited about college football, but not enough to follow the entire season and be able to quote stats and rankings...I love to sit down with friends and watch a game, but it is not my priority for the weekend. I will be one of the first to jump up and yell at the television, I think all sports are better when watched live, and I would just about attend any college football game, because of the electricity in the air. Being from Alabama, there is an underlying rule in college sports. You are either an Auburn Tiger fan, or you Roll with the Crimson Tide......Can I get a big WAR EAGLE !! Don't tell anyone, but I cheer for both teams, unless they are playing each other. In November, you can bet I have my blue and orange ready, but I was very proud that the Alabama Crimson Tide won the national championship last year. I think it was last year?!?
And for the record, one of my all time favorite movies is RUDY.
That is about it for me and sports, well, as for being a fan anyways.
In school, were you a cheerleader or did you play sports? John II
I think I have answered this one already. I participated in every athletic program that was available to me..Basketball, volleyball, track and field and softball. One of the good things about attending a small school (graduating class of less than 40) is that everyone who tries out, actually makes the team. So while I cannot say that I was extremely talented in every sport I played, I can say that I got a lot of playing time.
Who was the coolest, nicest, most handsome and outgoing neighbor you had when you were a kid? And if that doesn't get the answer I think it deserves, then who drove you and some other friends to the U2 concert in Fort Worth in 1988?
Bet you didn't think I would actually answer this question, now did ya?
Are you happier single or in a relationship?
Truth be known, I am happier just being me. I have been through alot to become the person that I am , and quite frankly, I am so in love with me!! I don't mean this in a conceited way at all, but given the circumstances, I could have turned out totally different.
As for a relationship, I am also very in love with the idea of love. I believe in happily ever after, rainbows, and fairy tales. No, I am not waiting for my prince to come, but wouldn't that be nice. When I see a relationship that works, but has no visible sign of emotion, I feel sad for that couple. But, hey, your relationship is not for me to judge, right. Whatever works for you.
In my life, I have noticed that I tend to be more contented with everyday life if I am in a relationship, and on the same note, I also find myself more adventurous. I guess it is just that empowerment of knowing someone is there with you whether you succeed or fail.
Does this mean that I am in need of a relationship to make me feel whole. Absolutely not!! As I stated in the beginning, I am so in love with me! Would I prefer to be committed to someone? Yeah, sure! I have this amazing capacity to love, and naturally, I enjoy being able to share that with someone special. Gosh, I hope this answered your question.
How long was your longest relationship?
My longest relationship is the one I have with myself. There has been good and bad times, but I can honestly say that I love the person that I have been molded into throughout all the challenges I have faced in my life.
With a man, my longest love affair lasted 7 years...and its decline was just one more factor that pushed me forward into my trucking career. We were in our early 20s when we met, and basically matured into completely different types of people with different goals. Even after the separation, we attempted to give it one more try, but with both of us knowing that it was just not meant to be, we parted ways with sadness and acceptance.
