Good Morning, Everyone! 🚛 KEEP ON TRUCKIN’, BABY 🚛
🎶 “Ah, breaker one-nine, this here’s the RUBBER DUCK... you gotta copy on me, PIG PEN, c’mon?” “Ah, yeah, 10-4, PIG PEN, fer shure, fer shure. by golly, it’s clean clear to flag town, c’mon. yeah, that”….”Big 10-4 there, PIG PEN, yeah, we definitely got the front door, GOOD BUDDY, mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a CONVOY”…Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June, In a Kenworth pullin’ logs, Cab-over pete with a reefer on And a jimmy haulin’ hogs…We is headin’ for bear on i-one-oh ’bout a mile outta shaky town I says, “PIG PEN, this here’s the RUBBER DUCK, And I’m about to put the hammer down….’cause we got a little CONVOY, rockin’ through the night…..Yeah, we got a little CONVOY, Ain’t she a beautiful sight? Come on and join our CONVOY….Ain’t nothin’ gonna get in our way. We gonna roll this truckin’ CONVOY ‘cross the U S A….CONVOY! …🎶
🚛 A truckers life, a double-edged sword, at least it seems to me,
The hours long and tedious, but there’s that sense of free…
The road is quiet and open, at least all through the night…
Till morning traffic comes along and brings congestions’ fight.
A trucking AGENCY may own the rig that they sit up in,
So most all rigs return at end to that one point of ORIGIN.
But others that have toiled hard and bought a rig brand new…
Sit FREELY in those trucks bearing their name like a TATTOO…
I guess it’s like a PULLEY, something always drawing them in,
And calling them to hit the road…another trek begin.
I saw a truck just yday, it looked big as a boat…
And on its side the logo…large in brown, “Burger-She Wrote”…
With a HYPHEN separating the Burger from a pen…
And I laughed, cause it was clever, like the show from way back when.
And I looked up at the trucker, nodded, feeling oh so small…
Wondering if he was one of those IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL! 🚛
BREAK..ER, BREAK..ER? No..they didn’t! Maybe the slightest half tic at ORIGIN, but the rest? DROVE right through. Old favorites. In fact, would you believe PULLEY was here just two weeks ago today? That was a surprise! Anyway, without any STOPping…lets GO on to the cartoon’s solution! Today we find ourselves on the OPEN ROAD, seeing two LONG HAUL TRUCKERS, talking to one other by RADIO. The dialogue tells us that one of them is a 40-YEAR VETERAN of the ROAD, and he’s in no hurry to hang up his CB. It’s definitely his CAReer…So, with our question asking us what he was…He was…IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL! BEEP BEEP! Good one, David…You’re definitely the KING OF THE ROAD! Ok, eye candy…TRUCK, blue, TRUCK, red…Two CARS, one gold, one green, each going in a different DIRECTION…Nothing much to WORK with here…Except for the staggered LINES noting the CB RADIO’s communication…it’s a quiet RUN…I think I’ll just DRIVE it on home…So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And ….🎶Just keep on TRUCKin‘…🎶 🚛🙋🏻
FYI: SITTING OUT ON THE BOAT EARLIER, SUN REFLECTING OFF THE WATER, MY FRIEND LOU NOTICED THESE..1 – He said that little smidgen of a item on the Veterans dashboard is the ubiquitous Hula Girl Dashboard Doll…2 – His Grill? Dead mosquitos stuck to it…And 3– (YES, 3)! The trucks emblem shows it to be a Kenworth Truck… (Which is mentioned in the opening song, 🎶CONVOY🎶 )…Boy, did I drop the BALL BEARINGS on this one, by claiming no Eye Candy today! Maybe I need to sleep BEFORE I tackle the puzzle…It looks like the nights of partying and doing it BEFORE the sleep isn’t always the right ROAD to take! 😂 CAP off to you, Jeff…🎶 I shoulda known better with a guy like you…🎶 Great details, 👏🏻 Bud…Kudos! 🚛🙋🏻…And a Kudo to Lou3!
