Be safe everyone.

It was good to hi to some old friends here over the weekend. Its just SAD that I came back here because of this devastating situation.

I will be leaving Chicago in a couple hours bringing food product to Alabama. It will be 850 miles of empty highway, which is SO DAMNED EERIE!

But I am ready for battle.

120 hand wipes

2 bottles of hand sanitizer

A box of gloves

A mask

Lysol

A couple other types of disinfectant spray

5 Roast turkey and mashed potato meals(Yeah I cooked Thanksgiving dinner last night)

15 bananas

6 oranges

A loaf of bread

A case of green tea

A case of water

And I said fuck those high sodium canned goods.


And my only political comment for the week? Lets hope our government can get together at 1:00pm to get that stimulus package put together, there are 2.5 million here in the USA who will be filing for unemployment today? Or this week? Im pretty sure they could use the funds to get by for the next couple weeks.

Rodney, Marybeth, Jose, and the rest of you folks in the trenches, who are in the heath care industry? PLEASE BE SAFE! PLEASE!!

Its going to be a sad, horrifying week both nationwide and worldwide.


I will see you all next weekend.

Peace and Love

Michael

    Wow, that's quite a truck - mini-kitchen and everything!

    I hope the lack of traffic makes for easier driving for you.

    As someone who did a brief stint working in the safety department of a fairly large trucking company, I know it ain’t easy for you drivers. Take care out there on the roads. Get home safely.

    We are in the trenches now.  Battling an invisible, terrifying, indiscriminate, evil killer. 

    All we can do is protect ourselves the best we can, be kind, tell our friends and family we love them and worry. 
    Worry for us, worry for strangers, worry for mankind, worry for our planet.

    Our fundamental skills for providing for ourselves and our very survival are in great jeopardy.  
    The fear of the unknown is paralizing.   

    As grave as the situation is, hope has never been more vital. 

    So I hope.  
    Nice shirt.

    Yup. I was the guy the went out and trained drivers on using eLogs, created the little “safety talk” letters that got stuffed in the route bags, wrote up drivers for not submitting pre-post trip check cards, did driver ride alongs, all the things that drove drivers nuts. The least popular thing I did was have stickers that said “Get Out And Look” place on the entire fleets side mirrors and “No Smoking” stickers placed in all the cabs. A lot of drivers called me expressing their thoughts on that one. Let’s say I wasn’t the most popular guy in the company.

    The outfit moved parts for GM and Chrysler. Had the account for the GM PDC outside of Cincy and the Chrysler PDC in Cleveland. Plus Philly, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Martinsburg, WV.
