Dar-Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving

That’s right, it is time for another installment of The Darwin Awards.

(14 April 2008, Texas) A contract worker was hired to install reinforcement bars on a communications tower near Camp Bullis. He was wielding power tools high above the ground, working feverishly on the bolts of a reinforcement bar, when two other workers saw him lean back and fall 225 feet to his death. Turns out, the man had loosened the bolts on the bar to which he was attached. Police are calling it a tragic accident. I’m calling it natural selection.

And on a happier note… For my American friends I hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving weekend. May your birds be juicy and your martinis dry.

OOOOOH! Poor guy. Turn of the screw. Hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving. My brother and I drove down to SW Oklahoma to check on our little old mom. Oh, my. It's getting interesting. Don't know how much longer she can be independent. But we had a nice visit anyway. Weatherman says it may snow on Sunday! How about that! D
