A Smashed Windshield

Today while driving to the dump a limb fell on my truck windshield and smashed it.

It reminded me of an even worse day almost exactly 23 years ago. It was October 4, 1987.

A tree-not a tree limb-fell on the car being driven by a good friend of mine.

The tree killed my friend and his mother-in-law. It broke the neck of my friend's wife but left their 2 year old daughter harmless.

It was yet another reminder that the older I get the more I realize that those 'bad' days you think you're having could be a whole lot worse.
