Signs of the Times

(about 9-04-06...) This was in our local newspaper, Abilene Reporter News, today's edition. This was not too far away from us, as the crow flies. 
Police Blotter:
"Drivers in Jones County were surprised by a 100,000 pound obstacle on FM 600 Saturday morning. A section of a wind turbine tower fell off the trailer of an 18-wheeler when the hitch snapped, KTXS-TV reported. A crane was called in to move the turbine part, which dented the road when it fell. No injuries were reported, according to KTXS."


Now that we finally have an electric can opener, most cans come with pull top openings. And my hands are too old to pull them off. Sigh
