Well, it seems like it's all systems go for Craig to get another trainee today. He received a phone call yesterday morning from Roy, who was hitching a ride with another TWT driver Bob, who used to work with Craig at his previous job. They were picking up a load out of Wallula, WA, as Craig was making his way north from San Diego, after picking up a load of banana Wednesday afternoon.
Craig had spent the night Wednesday in San Diego, as he was the last one loaded out of the Port. Leaving early Thursday morning, he first stopped by the company yard in Bloomington to fuel up, receive the above mentioned phone call from his new trainee, and also have the office electronically fix an error he had made on his driving hours on the new electronic log system. He had inadvertently hit off duty driving, when he meant to hit on duty driving. With a quick computer fix by one of the dispatchers, it was amended and he was on his way again.
All is calm on the home front. With the painting complete, and the research done on the tiling project, all I have to do is wait until we have the extra funds to purchase the tile and proceed. I think I my just head out and hit a couple of yard sales this morning to see if I can find any inexpensive treasures to give a transforming make over to.
