1 lovely trucker

Cruisin’ in and pulled up to Bradley & Country Fair and there’s a big honkin’ 18-wheeler ready to left turn to Country Fair. I read the “leased from,” looking for the usual “we hire!” stuff  and read “1 Lovely Trucker” on the cab.
And she is — I was already grinning when she gave me a solidarity wave (hey, you can tell a hostile honk from a friendly honk; waves work the same way).
Whether it’s 2 or 18 wheels, we’re rollin’ !

At another intersection yesterday, two of us  were heading towards the intersection, she perpendicular to my left, and I proceeded through as she was stopping– oh, by the way, my way doesn’t *have* a stop sign — and she went by with a just-after-passing “you bicyclists never stop at stop signs!” hooooonk!!  … I gave my best inane friendly wave and smile (and then honked back)…

And yes, I got wet Wednesday evening but there wasn’t actually lightning or thunder for my commute.   I did find it a little disconcerting that at the start, the 30+ mph winds were from the southeast… and from southwest entirely not enough later.   Thems was unstable currents…

Yesterday it stopped before my a.m. commute and then before the home trip — and the 30 mph winds were Plain Old Tailwinds.   However, I wish I’d listened to my impulse a few years ago to invest in companies developing products that withstand wind…

    I’ve had that “annoyed at your existence” honk before, too. Ah well.
