Guess the saying “Going in circles” is appropriate for this group of trucks we are moving from Mobile, Alabama to Tunica, Mississippi.
One day out. One day back. About 3/4 of the trip is on US Highways featuring four lanes and speeds of 65 miles an hour. That is if you don’t count the many small towns with traffic lights to slow the progress down. Then the speeds are from dead stop to 35 or 45 miles per hour until the small town is behind us.
We are going to start our third trip today. Dispatch told us there were 10 trucks to move. That was changed to 6. Later it was changed to 9. This trip will take care of the 9. We received a call telling of 2 more trucks that will be going to Tunica as well. We will have one more trip back to Mobile after this one.
I have had a children’s jump rope song stuck in my head the past four days. It got started because of the variations in the trucks. 3….6….9
I’m going to stick this ditty in your head. Maybe that way it will get out of mine. Maybe
3 – 6 – 9
The goose drank wine.
The monkey chewed tobacco
On the street car line.
The line broke,
The monkey got choked.
They all went to heaven in
A little row boat.
