I can beat this one.

I have the Yahoo traffic map for northern Los Angeles County/San Fernando Valley/Ventura County on my Google page for quick reference before leaving work to drive home. One day a few weeks ago, there was a report of an overturned truck on the 405 near Santa Monica Blvd and "chickens clucking in the center divider." About an hour later there was a second report regarding CalTrans not being permitted to remove dead chickens from the freeway for health reasons. Now, where's that old guy in the white suit when you REALLY need him?

I had a neighbor in CO that would have loved this, Buck!

One Saturday morning I woke up to hear his VW and a bunch of "crunching" going on ... sounded like he was stuck and trying to get his car out of a rut or something .... so I got up to see if I could help him.

Turns out Rod had been collecting beer cans for a couple of months and had them all dumped out in the back yard .... and was driving back and forth to crush them ... only to take them ONE BLOCK down the street to the recycling center - which had a crusher! Took him about 2 hours to crush them down to one load .... probably would have only taken 4 or 5 at most uncrushed.

I miss Rod - life just doesn't have those little moments without him!

Many years ago my dad was working as a "cleanup" person when there were overturned trucks. We ate eggs for about 3 months. And there was another time he came home with cases full of candy and gum. Needless to say ALOT of that was given away.

As for the spuds... load 'em up. I'm on my way !!!!!!!
