So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Grrr

Blogger is still all fouled up where I can't post pics. That is almost worst that not being able to blog. I have cute pumpkin patch pictures, a great Pickle drawing and I will have my Friday hunk and Stuff Portrait Friday tomorrow, too.

It is almost too much to bear.

Although, that is easy pickins compared to what happened to us this morning. We were almost hit by a cement truck who just barreled through a red light. Stinkerbelle and I almost met our maker. Had everyone just gone when our lights turned green, this truck would have hit at least three cars, including mine. I couldn't make my left turn because the guy opposite me just sat there. I was wondering why he was just sitting there and then I couldn't believe my eyes. I really couldn't. I saw this cement truck in the middle of the intersection. I must have blinked a few times before it dawned on me that this guy just plowed through the stop light. And, it wasn't like the light just turned because a few cars had already gone in front of me. I was just shocked and so grateful that the driver opposite me had seen it coming - I did not! The driver of the cement truck was so shook up after he did that, he pulled over to the side of the road and was holding his head in his hands. I think he realized just how lucky he was that he didn't kill anyone. It was at that point that it hit me (ew, bad pun) how lucky we were that we weren't in a really bad crash. The tears started flowing at that point. I thanked God and our guardian angels for that.

    Glad you guys are okay.

    BTW, I use Flickr for my pictures now. It's free and pretty decent.

    Go to www.flickr.com and set up an account. You upload your pictures to their server. When you are ready to put the pictures on your site, right-click on the picture and go to "Properties". It will give your the picture's URL. Use that where you put your img src tag.

    It's a good thing you stopped, for the other driver I mean. They might have had a hard time finding him for the trial if he ever made bail.

    You know, because people in that kind of trouble run off all the time, I woudl never do anythign to him of course.

    Am I the only one wondering if Blogger is stopping just AoM from posting pics because their servers can't stand any more?

    I was driving to work one day and happened to be looking in the rearview mirror when a 10 ton bobtail truck ran a stop sign and erased the Chevy pickup following me. I was quite thankful that something hadn't slowed me down about 1 1/2 seconds that morning.

    Glad you and yours are OK
