11 Jul Cupcakes and Combines
St. Francis, Kan. – To start, I need to tell you all something very exciting that I did. I ordered a T-shirt that says “St. Francis, Kansas” on it with a barn and a windmill—basically all of my favorite things on a shirt. Well, Mom ordered it for me under my instruction while I was driving truck. Super excited.
These last couple weeks, Peter and I have created this game we like to play. It’s very similar to musical chairs except it involves energy drinks. Each day we ask ourselves, “What color/brand/flavor do we want to try today?” We try to pick a new one each time and we each try it to see if it will make a repeat performance in our bellies or not.
The crop around here continues to be fantastic, which means our days are long and our nights are short. This time of season, we all just know what vices we need to get us through the day. The two elevators in St. Francis are taking turns getting filled up so the lines and waits are long. It’s rough for progress but it’s a nice change-up for us truck drivers because we now have to freedom to jump out of our trucks and socialize with one another a bit. I have witnessed many meetings of the minds the last couple days, so if you have a problem that needs to be solved, shoot it my way and I’ll have a solution for you within a load or so.
