As always, here’s a link back to Claudia’s Blog to see what anyone else that is playing is saying about these.
We’ve been all over since the last time that I posted, although it seems that every place we go, we end up sitting for several days because freight is just so crappy right now. We were sitting in Las Cruces, NM until Thursday of last week, and that was after sitting in Amarillo, TX for 5 days. It’s like we are being punished, and I mean the whole trucking industry, because the fuel prices have fallen. Shippers seem to think that because the fuel prices have fallen, they can drop their rates significantly. We were trying to put some partial loads together to be able to get up the east coast so that we could be home for Christmas, and shippers were thinking that 25 cents a mile was a reasonable rate for shipping something 1900 miles….not. That load is still sitting in that shipper’s warehouse!
I have been knitting, and not really stealth knitting, on some Christmas presents for the younger kids in our family. All of the “little” kids are getting felted mittens this year and so I have been knitting on those. I haven’t taken any pictures of them because they won’t be felted until after we get home tomorrow or Tuesday, and then I will try to get some pictures of them.
