Hooray for Sunshine!!
Today was one of those rare days in my existence in which the planets were aligned, the ethers were calm, and my mental state was of all things, happy. I cruised around between downtown Louisville and back to our terminal in New Albany smiling and singing to myself as though I were in my right mind.
Dispatch eyed me warily all day and our mechanic dove under a trailer trying not to be seen everytime I drove into the yard. They were certain an explosion of nuclear proportions was eminent. For reasons that even I don't claim to understand, it never occurred. As a mater of fact it wasn't until my final load of the day that I got mildly aggitated at a fellow driver. He cut me off while approaching the Sherman Minton on the Kentucky side. However, he had little choice because of the left lane being closed for maintenance, so I gruffly gave him a free pass!
Is this a harbinger of things to come? Is Lloyd showing signs of actual patience? Will the sun rise tomorrow? To the latter I'd say yes. As for the two former, those who know me best would say, "not a chance!"
As for me , I'm clueless but I'll have to admit it was a refreshing day nonetheless!
Sleep Tight New Albany!!
