1/1/10, Biscoe, AR - Horse B.O.B.’s blog -
B.O.B. - “As the spokes-horse for the Team chapter of the Teamster’s Union, I had to write tonight’s blog. With New Year’s Day finally here, I had to point out to the Teamster Management, that the Team contract has expired. Like a couple of sheep going to slaughter, my teammates stepped right up to the harness this morning; not me, I wasn’t going to work without a new contract. I let Bob the Teamster chase me around, until I caved in to a signing bonus of a pan of oats. As part of the deal, I had the day off, and got to walk behind the trailer. Also included in the new union contract was a fully stocked trailer full of hay and oats, from our good friends, the Browns.
An hour after we started, we walked in to the city of Brinkley and saw some of the flooding from last week’s rain. All day long, we mostly walked down an elevated road with water on both sides. Just before we reached the town of Biscoe, we finally started passing through some dry country.
Tonight, the other lads and I have a nice dry playpen and are settled in real good. The Teamster has promised us a day off tomorrow. So far, he’s living up to the new contract. But, give him time - sooner or later, I know I’ll have to file a grievance on him!”
