In the Fall of 2006 Joe was on his way home from work and a car took a left-hand turn right in front of him. He could not avoid the car, and hit it. No one was hurt. He was in his brand new truck. He was nice to the girl because she was young and obviously shaken up. Joe's truck had to have some body work done on it.
He said to me, in somewhat of a serious tone, "good thing I wasn't on my motorcycle".
