Long Way to Go = Short Time to Get There

CB


This CB Jargon glass is another great thrift store find. I fell deeply in love with this glass the first time I saw it. As the granddaughter and niece of career truckers, some of the phrases on this glass bring back a handful of road stories I heard as a kid. Not to mention, I feel a little like Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit every time I refer to a Volkswagen as a Pregnant Roller skate.

I'd be green with envy if I didn't like you so darn much. These are kitschy-cool.

Oh, man that takes me back to the '70's and that "Convoy" song that started off the whole CB craze (which must have been irritating as hell to actual truckers).
This here's rubber duck
and I'm about to put the hammer down
We got a mighty con-voy. truckin' through the night
We got a mighty con-voy, ain't she a beau-ti-ful siiiight....

This is quite awesome. I didn't know there was trucker jargon... shoul've known but didn't.

Oh I love them...they remind me of the old Mille Bourne game!

Two things for me to look up: Convoy song (dying to hear this) and the Mille Bourne game. I am way over the level of normal curiousity about these things.
