Hey y’all it’s me Jimmy B, the Load Securement king. Hawaii sure was sweet, but I started gettin island fever, you know being cooped up without any interstates to drive on. Me, I’m a man of the highway. Can’t keep me away from truck tie downs for too long fore I start to go crazy.
Anywho, I’m settin out for a big haul this week down to the bayous of Norlins. That’s how they say it these days. Makes me remember a story from back when I wore my hair long.
I was pulled over down near the Everglades takin a nap. It was hottern hell and I had all my windows rolled way down. When alluva sudden, I heard me the loudest squawk you ever seen. There was a big ole pelican fightin with an alligator. Now this alligator musta been a baby, cause he was only bout 4 feet from head to tail and he sure was struggling with a big ole pelican. He had the thing all caught up in his mouth like its legs were bound with truck tie downs or winch straps – he wudn’t letting go. The pelican was bonkin him on the head, but after a while, he kept chompin at his feet, and the pelican knew what he had a-comin.
It’s a sad tale, y’all, but that there’s the circle of life. You gotta do the eatin’, else you’ll get ate.
