Saint George's Day...

Today is St. George's Day and it's supposed to be England's National Day but we don't even get a day off! How ridiculous is that? Anyway, St. George is the patron saint of England. His emblem, a red cross on a white background, is the flag of England, and part of the British flag.

One of the best-known stories about St. George is his fight with a dragon. But it's highly unlikely that he ever fought a dragon, and even more unlikely that he ever actually visited England. Despite this, St. George is known throughout the world as the dragon-slaying patron saint of England.

Oh well, if I'm St. George, I'd much prefer to wake and slay the 'dragon' of this English lad =P Happy belated St. George's Day!

Hello my name is Merle Dean Shamblin and I would like to be your new friend. I sure could use somebody to chat with.

Moved to Caddo and Washita counties where I attended school at Colony Hydro and Weatherford. My parents Malvin and Wanda Shamblin were cotton and peanut farmers. Dad died in 99 from lung cancer. Graduated from SWOSU with a business degree. My two sisters are LaDonna Hubert and Malva Burrahm. Dennis is my brother. I have been a truck driver for 15 years and have driven 2 million paid miles. I have received many safe driving awards over the years. I am single and have never been married. I have a wide range of interests and am pretty much an open book. Currently I drive a 2006 Freightliner for a major carrier. I dont go to Canada very often. I dont have a dedicated route so I run the entire lower 48.
