Living in a truck

Sleeping on a bunk

(I think it is a rock)

Driving thru the night

To Wal-Marts left and right

Backing into every dock

Checking all the seals and every lock

Food is the name of the game

It ever stays the same

Hurry, scurry, little trucker mice

That DOT cat isn't very nice

Running fast as you can go

The cost of fuel is a terminal NO

And the fine at the scale house

Will bankrupt every single mouse

So Wal-Mart we're adocking

Till the DOT comes knocking

It will be simply shocking

When we discover who's been looking

Always a pleasure reading your work. The only problem is there's too little of it to read. Hope your doing well. It's 5:00 AM here in MA and I just woke up a trucker sitting at our dock. I instantly thought of you and isn't it funny that I come on line and there's a write from you. It has to be fate. Well gotta run. Peace, Love and Blessings To You Always My Friend. PS. A Great Big (((Hug))) Especially For You. Paul.

Makes perfect sense, Annie! Stay safe on the ol' road, and may God put His Angels around your rig and the traffic around y'all! Love you bunches, TruckerGal!

Ten-four, good buddy!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

May be nonsense, Annie, but makes perfect sense. I don't know how y'all afford gas; drive within the DOT regs; sleep in those rigs (although I bet after a long haul, that "rock" feels like a feather) ... you've got more stamina than I'd ever have. And can you see me shiftin' gears with a pinched nerve in the neck? GROUNDED! LOL Keep on truckin, Annie, stay safe, hear? *LOVE the write and the music* and YOU most of all.

(((HUGS))) and love, karla.
