So here we go again with yesterday's schedule, all over again. 
And it's Sunday.
Seems like I work most Sundays, a thing I would love to see change.
But, Sundays are great days to drive in terms of traffic and driving through
Houston isn't any fun no matter what type of vehicle you are driving. 

I'm watching the news and just have to shake my head.
There's too much foolery going on in politics.  I don't even want to label
that to one party, the whole thing is messed up and it doesn't matter who
we vote into office, they become a part of that machine, eaten and swallowed up
whole.  They just abandon their political platforms that they run on and go with the
crowd.  Excepting  a few notables.

Regardless, my medical card is about to expire.  I told my company about it last
week and have heard nothing back. THEY should KNOW about this, that should
be part of a program that pops up a notice for any drivers whose medical card is about
to expire. Cause' if you let it lapse? The state you have your CDL will revoke it until
you get it renewed. States store the information now - as evidenced by the State of Texas
sending me notification a month and a half ago and then another notice that it needs to
be renewed.

I can't just go to "any" place for this exam either.  I mean, I can to cover myself, but my
company wants drivers to go to specific facilities and get it done their way. 

Well, if my company continues to drop the ball, I will go to the nearest place and get my own
exam done, because getting your CDL reinstated is, I have heard, no short process and isn't
worth it. 

Okay. Off to the races. Hopefully not a repeat of yesterday. 

Well yesterday certainly didn't turn out like I expected.  I was sitting in that truck yard (Brownsville) waiting for a trailer to show ...
