  1. Hey Guys!! Thanks for all the kind words. Sadly full time is not an option. That's ok. That said, I'm quite happy being back on the road part time. I have no compassion for these "people" that say, "I can't find a job"! Since my release from the Doctor's to go back to driving the phone hasn't stopped ringing! Might need to buy a bigger hat!
  2. What a fantastic "support group"! Thanks Crew!
  3. Hey Crew! Forgive my absence this year. Been a tough one for the Powell's. After 2.5 years of rehab I finally received an ok to return to work part time. Taking one trip a weekend for WW Transportation here in Burlington. Every Other week I'll be making deliveries a few hours a day for Heartland Packaging. Part Time Only. No Overnight Trips. The first semi I ever drove was a Mack. Funny how life keep rolling around full circle. With WW & Heartland plus S/S I hope to be able to pay for my free health care. Was out in the shop yesterday and "The Harlem Hussy" was sound asleep. Cheers!
  4. Holy Cow I'm Proud To Be A Part Of This Group. My Father was Air Force. We flew over Pearl Harbor departing Hawaii for Japan, 1964. Close as I've been. I salute all that have served and continue to serve.
  5. That is priceless!!! Too funny casper50. My Lori is even laughing.
  6. Wonderful & thoughtful responses. I try to remember everyday the cost of our freedom. Along with a declaration of war being signed on this day in history, another less significant event happened 34 years ago today. Tim & Lori Powell married. 12/08/1984 thru 12/08/2018. Holy Cow, I put up with her 34 years and counting???????
  7. Hey Crew! Sorry I've been AWOL. Been a rough summer but we're hanging on! Hope everyone is safe and well!! Should have more "Plymouth Time" this winter! Next Saturday is the Veteran Parade in downtown Quincy Illinois, followed by a second parade at the Quincy Veteran's Home. Hope some of you can attend. As always our little Southeast Iowa group will attend with our vehicles.
  8. On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.
  9. Hello Crew! How is everyone holding up? Seems some of you must be under water and some on fire. Been hot and humid here in the Midwest but that's better than shoveling snow! Been working on several projects this summer, but moving awfully slow. Trying to finish a trailer I started a long time ago and rebuilding my Lori's old jon-boat. Gotta' get gone, but I'll be back!
  10. Any of you know if there is a stock wheel that will fit my 55 Dodge? Looking to get away from the split ring rim. Attached is a photo.

  11. Crops in the mid-west going in the ground like crazy but the gnats are our main resource right now!
  12. Great Time Yes!!! Great Time Maybe??? Great Time Better Than Going To Work, Pulling Wrenches On The Toys!!! Definitely! Lori Say's "Hey"!
  13. Had the 1952 Dodge M37 out for her first event of the year last Saturday. An Armed Forces Day display. Not as many trucks showed this year but everyone had a good time! Our 2 vehicles, the Dodge and our Chevy replica M1008 on display, Wapello Iowa. 05/19/2018
