|November 26, 2004 -- I dropped my loaded trailer at
Kennesaw, Georgia this morning and picked up an empty trailer. The interior
of the empty trailer was dirty, so I had to take it to a truck wash to get
it washed out. I took it back to Kennesaw to a different warehouse and
dropped it and picked up a load going to Ashburn, Georgia. I dropped the
load at Ashburn, Georgia and picked up an empty and brought it to the WSE
Atlanta yard. I hooked up to a loaded trailer that drops at an MCT drop yard
at Peru, Illinois.
The Christmas shopping season for 2004 has started in
earnest. I usually don't do much Christmas shopping. The idea of being
obligated to buy presents for friends and/or relatives has bothered me for
years. I don't mind giving people gifts, but I hate feeling obligated to do
so. Most people already have everything that they could possibly need, so
buying them gifts just because it's a societal tradition is a total waste of
time and money.
