A day in the life
I've been doing my medical supplies delivery job for over a week now. The hours are easy and the pay is decent, but it is boring
... so today I decided to bring my camera along for the 5 hour ride, just to show people things that I thought about and places I've been.
4:50AM. Wake up. Leave the house by 5. Arrive at the warehouse at 5:30 to pick up stuff. This morning it was 4 new computers for drug stores, 8 boxes of adult diapers, some IV stands, crates of pills, and some other random boxes. All I have to do is take it from the marked piles in the warehouse, load them into the van, and drive them to their locations. I didn't take a picture of the van and the exterior of the warehouse didn't turn out well.
After the warehouse I drive for about 45 minutes north, where I meet another driver (my housemates' dad) and drop off all the stuff for northeastern Oklahoma. While I'm waiting for him I get to stare at these weird signs, posted right next to a playground.
Of course I tried to take pictures of the sunrise... but pictures of sunrises are just that - a picture. I praise God every morning that I get to look out over the plains and see the glory of God's creation - the sun streaming down from sapphire blue to that golden orange - one more day not promised. If you really want to see a sunrise, just wake up, sit somewhere comfortable, and be still.
This morning was foggy. Not a really thick fog, but thick enough for me to be glad I wasn't walking through any dark forests. The roads are empty up until about 7ish, and the fog was clearing by then anyway. Cars aside, it looked pretty cool looking out the window of the van on I35. With the sun rising a little higher (when this picture was taken) it looked like the sky was melting to the ground.
You're NOT a skateboarder if you're up at 8 in the morning. Poser.
This sign always cracks me up. "Hey, I have an idea. Lets not only name our airport after a famous cowboy, but lets get creative with it. Throw out that plain old 'international' that all of the airports have been using, and lets go with 'world' instead! That'll make us sound more sophisticated." I'm pretty sure they were only able to use the "world" because thats technically an accurate description of where the airport is located, not because of any actual international flights occuring to or from Oklahoma.
Theres one picture I'm extra sad I didn't get... There is a credit union called "Weokie Credit Union" on my route. The first time I drove by it I could've sworn
it said "Wookie Credit Union". Still cracks me up every time.
