Today while driving to a plumbing repair job, I was enjoying a beautiful almost-fall day with the windows down. The sun-dappled roadway was turning and twisting through town and into the woods. I heard a crunching, grinding sound and looked to the oncoming lane just in time to see a wheel bouncing toward me. A pickup truck was towing a concrete mixer, and a wheel was bouncing casually across the road while the mixer was dragging violently sideways toward me. I swerved to the right as a stone bounced off the open window frame and into my head. I slowed down and swerved back into my lane while feeling for blood. I found none, said ‘Phewf!’ and waited for my heart rate to return to double digits.

Glad THAT doesn’t happen every day.

And for Tiff, here’s proof:
