We keep drinking up the lumper money, and soon I start seeing trouble with the relationship. The relationship was a good but the drinking perverted it, and that was bad. We were somewhat hooked on it, and we knew we needed to stop. We decided our problem was spiritual. We both had a form of religion in our youth. We were joining our experiences with Christianity, when we could not reconcile our belief differences without some give and take. She thought she was OK being a sinner and still ask God for favors. I thought: If God was what He said He was, you would have to do everything in your power to serve Him. We finally met somewhere in the middle. We would do the second one, but realize we are still sinners. Sinners under grace. She was raised a Pentecostal, and I had Baptist experience. I started listening to radio broadcast about Christian living while out on the truck. I was really stirred by one done by Herbert Armstrong, which opened up many scriptures for me. We quit drinking and started seeking God.

This takes you up to my first part of “Coming to Jesus” series. This last paragraph wouldn't fit in part 1. Deade.

Perhaps you should write a book
got photos you can add to the story?
That is kind of what I am putting together, my autobiography. Sorry, no photos though.

Is this the type of rig you used to drive?
In Oz we call these a "semi-trailer" with the front engine part being a "prime mover"
Add another trailer and you become a "B-double" add another trailer and it is a "road train"

Yes Waggles, just like that 18-wheeler. We call it a semi-tractor/trailer rig. We used to run doubles out of the wholesale bakery in California. In fact I turned the rear trailer on its side once when they got in a bind making a u-turn. It was a mechanical thing and not my fault. Still, we lost a lot of product on that and had to have a small make-up production run.

D......... I had forgotten all abut the term tractor-trailer......that is what my folks called them, of course everyone did then.

My Dad used to tell me stories of truckers losing brakes on the five mile grade.......you probably heard the same, perhaps ahd fellow truckers who had the same problem?
Waiting for installment 5

one can try to be good stewards but God understands that accidents happens

There is a little mini fifth wheel on a drag dolly to pull the back box trailer: They had let it get too dry and that is what caused the bind. It went over like in slow motion. Unfortunately fresh wrapped bread doesn't do well on its side with other loaves mashing it.

Funny how often we can have "coincidences" in life with people we get to meet.
I too was a breadcarter and drove a large Austin Morris van stacked full of loaves in wire baskets.
Also learned to be a doughmixer and breadbaker in the family business.
