1 Richard Hudson 1 week ago Since our family business was closed just over a year ago, I have been trying to keep my life interesting without much success. Boredom is a killer. Me and my daddy in law used to fish together a lot, but since he has passed on fishing just isn't as much fun anymore. I never took up golf. I wish I would have, but, at my age and also with my suspension system having handled too many truck tires and related duties, I just don't think my swing would be a thing of beauty.So, I have a long time friend who has a medium sized trucking company. About 50 trucks and 200 or so trailers. He has hinted in times past that he thought I could be helpful to him, so a couple of weeks ago I sent him a text and asked him what he thought about it. He fired back that he was very interested. That was Friday, and Monday I was back in the saddle again. I have spent the last few days trying to learn his computer system, and probably will spend a couple more weeks in learning his system overall. I already have a boatload of suggestions, but I have to honor that fact that it is his system, and to not be too suggestive, because, I have to remember, it is his ball game. My duties are going to be mostly administrative. Maybe some accounting, and helping him with whatever needs to be done.It is a little bit of an adjustment being a hired hand instead of the main man, but I am enjoying it. I'm out of Conchieta's hair and re-connecting with some old friends, so I'm having fun.
