I had a meeting with my children this morning, I explained that I would like to be retired atleast by my next Birthday,05-08-13. they feel like that would be a good idea.
I have enough waiting projects to keep me out of trouble.:ThumbUp:

BTW , my auto Body and wrecker service is a Family bussiness, three of my kids actuall are running the bussiness.

Hope Im not counting my chickens before they hatch! BUT , My Son and Daughter met with a potential wrecker driver today , they liked him, I will have the last say, Friday at 10:30 we will meet. If its a go, I will ride with him for a week. He knows the area, he is a layed off FedEx driver and he drove wreckers in CA.. Wish me luck guys, retirement might be much sooner then I planed.:party

:ROFL I wouldnt make a very good drivers training guy.
He made me a nervouse wreck, He seems to be a good young man, and he does need a job. He is not a truck driver, if he worked on a wrecker before,he must have been a passenger. He did tell a good story to get a try out and he didnt stop talking for two days.
No hard feeling, infact I feel bad for him, but I cant turn my trucks over to a no common sence person.
Im headed to the garage , working on two projects today, paint one and install a trans axle in another.:pics::pics:

BIG surprise. they drove from 3am that morning to about noon to be there with me. they and my kids cooked that deal up.
Then :dunno: i didnt know!! The Harrison City Chamber of Commerce show up for a ribbon cutting for the new management. wow, everyone had me fooled or in the dark on this one.
Later in the evening Ken and wife/me and wife went to the Dixie Restaurant and had a meal then hung out looking @ my tractor and car toys.Good visiting with great people.
Well I still need to hire a driver, he will come along soon.
