A loud KABOOM woke us up this morning around 6 AM. My immediate thought was that someone had crashed into the relatively new pillars to the side of the driveway. Joe started barking and ran for the front door, and Jim followed him to the front door in his underwear and a shirt. It was still pretty dark out, so it was hard to see what happened, but the trashman was sitting on our front steps resting his head in his hands. He had narrowly escaped being crushed by a driver who wasn't paying attention and had plowed into the back of the garbage truck. What a way to start the day. Luckily, no was hurt. The driver of the car was pretty shook up, and the trashman took the rest of the day off.
