It would have been a bit ironic...

My latest close call was on my way home, yesterday, after the Livingston ride. Just outside of Coldspring, an ambulance driver turned in front of me. I had to slalom between his rear bumper, and the truck in the oncoming lane. No lights, no siren, not even a turn signal...guess his head was too far up his to see me!!! Of all people, you'd think that those guys would try a little harder NOT to kill you!

Jussayin'...he'd have only been creating more work for himself!

Was on my way to work the other day going down West Rd towards 290. I was in the left lane and a white van was in the right lane. As I started to pass the van the lady got over with no blinker real fast and almost clipped my back wheel (luckily I saw it happening and gave it enough gas to get out of the way). I turned around to look at her and she was on her cell phone.


Just nodded my head and drove off.

Tonight on 610, while going like 90mph, a car goes to switch lanes to pass a car. Im in the far left lane, they go into my lane, slam on my brakes, down shift, they move back over and pass in the other lane.

I disappeared.

This happened just last week:

I was leaving for work, about 5:30 am. As I'm walking out the door, it hits me and I think, "Son of a B*tch!" I turn around and grab my cell phone, that I just nearly forgot to take with me.

That was a close one!

Yesterday, Livingston ride. Spooked deer ran in front of me. Glad I saw her first and slowed down.
