trucker wife applause

I'd like to take this moment to congratulate a certain Lexus driver in Pennsylvania on still being alive today, after cutting off that fully-loaded flatbed truck my husband is driving on I-90.

Quite the daredevil you are, taking your life in your hands like that. And that joyfully random testing of the laws of physics - "how quickly CAN 80,000 pounds come to a stop?" - well, that's just a level of courage that one doesn't see every day. And you know, it's good for truckers to have terrifying moments like that - helps them keep perspective on what's REALLY important in life.

It's actually a public service you performed today, just floating out there in front of him, entirely oblivious to the world around you. You must be very proud.

By the way, some time you should check out that handy indicator that other people use to signal lane changes. And also, if you use your right foot to push down on the conveniently-placed pedal, you'll find the car accelerates to highway speed. It's all very exciting, so amazing what technology can do these days.

In other news,
Spike​'s brakes and horn both performed admirably today.
As did his blood pressure.
And a platoon of guardian angels.

Maybe his Lexus didn't come with the new, up to date thing-a-ma-jigs that our cars have. Now we know why we pray for Jeff. Keep driving Jeff and we will keep praying!!!!
