So Here's what Happened.......

I had to leave the confines of my Offices yesterday to run out and look at a few upcoming Projects......

As I was waiting to make a right turn and enter the Freeway, I noticed a group of McCain supporters off on the side of the road cheering and waving flags at the passersby. One fellow, driving at about 45 miles an hour obviously didn't agree with them.......

He blared his horn, took his hands off the wheel, and was giving them a sign of.....disrespect for their Candidate.....distracted as he was, he failed to negotiate the slight bend in the road right next to me.....

He did not, however fail to juxtapose his pretty Prius with the Light pole ten feet directly off my drivers' side door.....KA-WHUMP, and an immediate 45mph to 0mph, and exploded the front end of his pretty Prius across and through my truck, leaving a few new items of interest lodged in the side of my face and neck.....

Nothing serious, but the ol' adrenal system is still operating at peak efficiency.

In the words of my Little Baby Brother......"Messed Him Up....umhmmm" I gave aid as was needed, mostly just cradling the poor fellows head so as not to move it until the Pros arrived, and I was on my way......

Thanking G-d for solid, unyielding steel poles as set by our employees. Otherwise, I think the blogging would have been on hiatus for a bit.

Couple things I came away with.......

1) I will NEVER drive one of those little death machines....crumpled like an accordian, it did.

2) Life truly does change in just a few seconds.

3) Yelling and cursing at Folkes just because you disagree with them can be downright counter productive.....well, 'spescially when you're driving.

And you'll be proud.....I didn't even ask the a$$hat if he'd voted yet.
So there.

Glad you're OK wollfie. The "religious" part of me observes that Random Chance works is mysterious ways.

I, too, am glad you're okay, Wollf. But I have to say, if this weren't so serious it might be comical.
