What began with one business manual for truckers in 2002 has grown into one of the leading companies for trucking educational and information in North America. Write Up The Road Publishing & Media began publishing “Driven 4 Profits: An Owner/Operator’s Guide to Keeping More of the Money You Earn” to teach truckers how to manage their trucks like small businesses on wheels. This initial effort expanded rapidly, as “Quick and Simple Record Keeping for Owner/Operators,” “Gearing up 4 Profits,” “Seven Secrets of a Successful Trucking Company” and “Marketing your Motor Carrier” quickly joined the best-seller list at the fledgling publishing company. But the educational effort didn’t stop there. Major trucking publications asked book author and veteran trucker Tim Brady to write columns and features on a regular basis. He now writes for 17 trucking industry publications and blogs and is the business editor for American Trucker magazine. He is a trucking business journalist and weekly contributor on the Lockridge Report on SiriusXM Road Dog Trucking Radio. He is a keynote speaker along with conducting his signature “Fast & Furious Problem Solving Sessions™ at national conventions and meetings of various trucking firms and organizations. Brady also travels to smaller trucking companies who needed personalized mentoring and business coaching. Brady’s travel schedule was quickly filled, and yet he could only reach a dozen or so trucking industry members annually. It was soon obvious the top priority of reaching the people who wanted his expertise demanded an innovative multimedia solution. So began TruckersU.com, the trucking education and information website with downloadable e-books and audio workshops for truckers on the go. He has also developed a series of on-line courses covering multiple trucking business topics which participants can access 24/7/365. Add to this Truckersbookstore.com with recommended trucking business books from Brady and other business writers to AmericanRigRadio.com-a podcast site with audio information and interviews with the movers and shakers of the trucking industry. Write Up The Road Publishing & Media and Timothy Brady’s objective is to provide multiple sources of information, education and resources to truckers on the go. We will never sit on our laurels, as we continually strive to provide strength through knowledge to truckers and small motor carriers.

Six pound, 10-ounce terrorist

Got to the veterinarians' yesterday and found I'd have to retrieve my cat myself - barely six months old, and not weighing even seven pounds, Sis (nee Cisco) had backed down the entire tech staff. She was scared, in pain from being spayed, and was NOT coming out of her cage with all those dogs around. Revenge has claws and knows how to use them. [ 133 more words ]

Hello, readers -
Just to let you know, I tried a posting service for Madame Zombra's columns and my own thoughts in Head Light on Write Up The Road's website to get both onto this page. The service evidently ran into glitches, and several posts didn't get links posted here. But we haven't disappeared! And I'm going to try and retrieve any missing columns from cyberspace and get them posted so you can read them at your leisure. Thanks for reading our meanderings. Stay well, and do comment.

In the interim

Abishag seemed to be feeling poorly again, so off we went to the vets' last week. (Reelfoot Animal Hospital has the best doctors and front desk people anywhere!) Dr. Crews checked her over - heart sounded good, lungs okay, arthritis noted, no cataracts after all (!) but he was concerned with her weight loss. She's severely underweight. So now, after a week or so of a high protein supplemental food, lots more attention than she'd been getting, and being back home upstairs - with no room mate - and her music ... [ 66 more words ]

A demon strikes again

Four or five of the Kibble Kids had romped off with Uncle Fred to the far perimeter of the farm, happy to be in the cool grass after a terribly hot day. The mockingbirds were diving, swooping down to try and peck them, and I was threatening the birds with a stick and equally futile words. Sundown was approaching. Too early for owls to be hunting, and too late for hawks to be out. [ 246 more words ]

Abishag’s illness; then a tornado?

Abishag had been unable to eat much the first days of July. (May have been the heat and humidity.) She got a bit better last Saturday, eating normally and back to being philosophical. Which philosophy came in quite useful, as either an EF-1, or an EF-2 tornado, or a very destructive straight line wind hit on Sunday. My opinion is it was a tornado brushing past, strewing debris and uprooting large trees like the one in the photo. [ 34 more words ]

The new 'nearmal'

Painting by Steve Johnson

All right. The experts are finally admitting we may never go back to ‘normal.’ This seems to be particularly applicable to those of us who are segregated into the High Risk Category, by underlying health issues or age or poor lifestyle choices (smoking, for example).

I’ve read quite a few articles on this subject, and agree with the consensus.

Cycles

There’s an excellent book, “The Fourth Turning,”* still available after a bit of searching, which I recommend if you’re debating whether history repeats itself or life is simply a series of random events.

Astrologers, of course, are vastly and professionally fascinated by cycles of time.

Kibble Kids through the roof

Know what happens when two kittens climb up on top of a wind tunnel greenhouse? They wiggle around, slip and slide and have a lot of fun until they explore under the edge of the plastic skin and kerflump! They fall into the greenhouse on top of a tray of various items set aside for recycling at some point. The tray falls to the floor and makes a very loud BANG! [ 33 more words ]

Abishag wants to know why she isn't quoted more often. "I didn't know you wanted to be quoted." "Why should the youngsters get all the attention from our readers? You even gave them a cute nickname - Kibble Kids. Humph." "Abishag, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to neglect you." "Well, you haven't neglected me, exactly. Because I wouldn't allow it." [ 56 more words ]

We Three

Photo used by permission. Copyright 2020, Charles S. Larrabee

We met over six decades ago in pre-Interstate, pre-Internet Albuquerque, New Mexico. Our elementary school and neighborhoods showcased diversity before the concept was even in public awareness. The basic one-script-fits-all TV shows at the time of course didn’t show the real world.

But the real world intervened when Stark’s parents divorced and his mother moved him and his sisters to Southern California. Brady’s family suffered tragedy when his older brother was killed in a terrible car wreck. Jenkins’ parents divorced, remarried, separated, went back together.

How did all of this impact the three of us?

Stark and Brady kept in touch over the years and were beach bum roommates around LA for a time, living in an architecturally-significant gas station among other habitats. Jenkins stayed in Albuquerque, with her Chihuahua and aspirations to be a best-selling writer.

Through plot-worthy coincidence, Stark saw a column written by Jenkins in a newspaper his dad subscribed to and emailed Brady to see if the columnist’s name rang a bell.

In 2000, Brady and Jenkins-Brady married and started Write Up The Road two years later. Stark joined them in their publishing efforts, bravely allowing the amateurs to publish his first collection of poems, “Sympatico Patio!”

The years in between have enabled all of them to polish their skills mightily. Brady has written bestselling trucking business books. Stark has become internationally known for his art criticism, articles and multiple books of poetry. Jenkins-Brady had one book published by Berkley Penguin of NYC and continues her aspirations to be a best-selling writer.

As of today, we three are story tellers, weaving articles, flash fiction, short stories, poetry, books out of our friendship and our hearts into lives rich with words and imagery.
