It’s Friday, and in the words of the great trucker trobadore Dave Dudley, this fleet blogger is feeling like a Truck Drivin’ Son of a Gun…kind of. I’ve actually never really driven an 18-wheeler, unless you count the video game they’ve got at the Dave & Busters in Marietta…
Anyway, Happy Friday to all of my good buddies out there who have turned this cb lingo blog into part weekly tradition, part language lesson. So, let’s get rolling through this weeks letters P-Q-R:
