Like manna from Heaven

Toilet paper was left scattered across a North Texas highway early Wednesday morning after an 18-wheeler driver fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed, authorities say.


When I was a kid we were traveling across the States to Dad’s new duty station when a semi with a stake bed trailer hauling cases of beer went out of control and went over on its side, scattering its load everywhere.
Immediate traffic jam – not from the truck blocking the road, it was in the median – but from all the vehicles behind it because all the drivers were jumping out and loading up on free beer.

    Maybe as far back as the late fifties or early sixties a boxcar full of beer derailed and tipped over in Southwest Philly, the neighborhood rushed to assist in clearing the tracks.
    My Dad delighted in telling the story.

    “Loading up” is an odd way to spell “Stealing”.
