Ahhh, had me a day today! I slept nine hours last night then drove to Krogers for supplies at 0700. Then I fed my birds and bought my drugs at Walgreens all before 0800.
Daniel's on crutches after foot surgery and he hobbled over to hang out. Our sexy mail lady brought a package to my door and I know she heard Daniel comment about her sexy tattooed legs, as she walked away.
It was a set of bed sheets from Amazon, I've worn mine out, and he washed and folded them for me, while I headed on over to the Tubing Company for an afternoon shift. I told Elizabeth I don't do this for the money, I do it because she asked!
It was a big group, a bunch of young kids, five to seven, that had won a baseball tournament down in Florida, so the parents brought them up here to Lawrenceburg, TN for a float.
Thirty seven total. Both of our busses were standing room only, most packed up group I've ever seen. Tubes were bulging out from our trailers.
As I pulled through our downtown square I was giving history lessons, pointing out David Crockett's cabin on the right. It's got a museum inside!
We put them all onto the creek, new groups were arriving and we busted our ass all day. I really enjoy this job, I love the people I work with and I love the customers. I could have done this gig all summer, but I'm too old for it. Once in a while is OK.
I got home at 1500 and had my first drink of the day. I don't drink and work. Daniel hobbled over on crutches and we hung out.
Later I walked him back to his house, checked his mail, and got him up the steps and in. He wanted to go to town and eat some fast food with me, I said I wasn't driving, so he resigned himself to a TV dinner.
I grabbed my folded sheets, told him I loved him, and said good night.
Am I tired and sore and worn out? Hell ya! But it was better than last time. My body is sitting here actually appreciating the physical exercise.
But Elizabeth remember, emergency driver only!
