Cooler weather!

I am loving this cooler weather!! Here in Texas this summer we have had over 45 days of 100 degree temperatures and something like 34 of them in a row! Wow! This past week has been wonderful. Lows at night in the upper 50's and highs in the low 80's. Now that is what I am talking about!
Work is going good. I talked to my boss and I think he is going to be able to work it to where I can have every Friday off for a few months so that I can get my internship done. Our classroom work only has about another month but I have to get 50 hours of massage in before I can be finished.
We also have a semi at work now that we will be using every other week for one of our customers that will be ordering anywhere from 18-30 pallets of product each day. We have a 53' trailer also. Joe and I are the ones with the most experience driving the semi so that means we will usually be the ones that are taking that run. It is only up to Amarillo so we can be there and back in about five and a half hours so it is easy but we will have to find something else to do to get us our 40 hours. I took it up there on Tuesday and I have to say it sure was nice to be in a "big" truck again! Although it is going to take some getting used to the fact that it is a day cab! I'm not used to having a window behind me in a truck!!
We did some more work on our master bedroom. We got all of the trim stained for the walls and doors. We got some beadboard up on the pony wall that is separating the bedroom from the bathroom and we almost have the shower to the point that we can start laying down the tile. We haven't done tile work before and this shower is 6'6" long by 3'4" deep. We have decided to use big 20x20 tiles and will have to make some cuts. I guess we will figure it out and learn as we go. :-)
Today was a pretty easy day at work. I went up to Amarillo but I only had 9 stops so I was back and done by 1300. Granted I left Lubbock at 0500, but this was definitely a short day. I met Joe (he took the big truck and was back by 1030) and we got both of the vehicles inspected and now I'm back at the house. I have class tonight. Fun Pathology! (..<--- insert sarcasm there). I am thinking a nap is in order. I don't usually get one of those but I almost feel like I may be coming down with something. My eyes are itchy so definitely need to get a nap. I think I will do that now.......

Hi Guys
Wonderful post related Iveco Truck Parts. Its contribute to air, noise, and water pollution similarly to automobiles. Trucks may emit lower air pollution emissions than cars per equivalent vehicle mass, although the absolute level per vehicle distance traveled is higher, and diesel particulate matter is especially problematic for healthI got the interior and exterior parts fitting properly. It was very easy to get my truck into the shape I wanted. . Thanks for sharing this information.
