The semi came out at a really slow speed and Scott tried to swerve but didn't have enough time and ran into the back of it. The worse part though was that he mostly likely would have survived if it hadn't taken so long to cut him out of his work van.


In other news, Boeing confirmed that they are going to lay off 800 employees starting in 2 weeks. My BIL has been there a little over 2 years so he's not sure how far up the chain he is. It doesn't make sense though. They say there's not enough work for them but yet they are on mandatory overtime and working weekends.
Sending up prayers for Stephanie and also your brother in law.

That song is one of LC's favorite songs.

Roy also invented an instrument called the "banjar" it is a banjo strung with sitar strings. It is featured prominently in the song "Fields Of People," on the Shazam album or the Live at the Fillmore CD. (The 17 minute long song)

Just a while ago I was going out to the mailbox and spoke to the neighbor and he said snowball got loose weds night and basically the whole block went out on a search mission for our beloved pooch! Me and brandi usually never leave him alone except the 8 hours of work which he is use to. But for days to be gone just upset him to the point he broke loose to go find his parents!! Anyways he came back about 5 am and everything is fine,but I just don't know why Julie did not tell us,I understand accidents happen and Brandi feels the same way. Well we are not going to mention it to her and meanwhile I am so glad Snowball came back and is safe and sound!!!
Glad to hear Snowball is safe.
