I like the old Land Rovers from the '60s & '70s, those things were heller cool... the Range Rover was more of a yuppie poser rig, LOL. Another solid rig from back in the day was the '70s Toyota Land Cruiser, those things were pretty tough. Sunny here now, but we had some rain earlier and I'm hoping we get more this afternoon, the air gets so cool & fresh after the rain, yeah? That last rain shower cooled the temp down quite a bit, so I went ahead and opened all the windows, there's a nice breeze flowing through the house as I write this. Y'all know I'm gonna flip my house, right? And truth be told, for the past month I've been thinking of trying my luck in the Pacific Northwest... even though WA is a blue commie state, there are several counties where property prices & taxes are still reasonable, aye? Hell, in my mind I've already been halfway to the Northwest... and this morning, out of the blue, I get a call about a driving job. Super 16 dump truck hauling cinders (lava rock), just the rock or gravel bucket, no trailer of any sort... dumping cinders at job sites, highway projects, and residential driveways. I went to the yard and talked to the guy in charge, nice enough guy as far as running the show goes, it's not a huge outfit but they stay busy *MOST* of the year... I told him straight-up that the winter slowdown was my greatest concern, I'd rather have steady year-round work, ya know? But we'll see what happens, he may find what he thinks is a better applicant, though we hit it off alright and he could tell I've done some trucking... we actually had a few good laughs talking about stuff that happened on the road. I'm not averse to staying here in the White Mountains, it's a paradise on earth, I just gotta have steady work. I still intend to flip this home of mine, and I don't mind either, there are other cool properties to be had, and I'll make some money off the flip. I need to free up some of the cash locked up in this home, that's just the way it is, but I don't HAVE to move elsewhere if a good job comes along... elsewhere meaning out of state, 10-4? I could conceivably buy another property here in this area, downsizing a bit home-wise but probably getting more land... the older I get, the more I like having land around me to spread out the neighbors, LOL. Meh, I still may load the rental truck and head for the Northwest, juggling the cats as I go... ANYWAY, JUST THOUGHT I'D GIVE Y'ALL AN UPDATE, HAD MORE FOLKS HERE TODAY LOOKING AT THE HOUSE AND THEY MIGHT BE THE ONES TO BAG IT, THEY SURE LIKED THE LAYOUT... WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. P.S. Y'ALL WANNA KNOW JUST HOW MUCH OF A BLUE COMMIE STATE WASHINGTON REALLY IS??? WELL, GET THIS: I READ ON THE WEB THAT THEY ALREADY ENACTED LEGISLATION TO TEACH "GENDER IDENTITY" IN KINDERGARTEN... YES, THAT'S RIGHT, KINDERGARTEN. I'D ASK WHAT THE WORLD IS COMING TO NOWADAYS, BUT I RECKON YA ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER, LOL.
