    So there I was, motoring along . . .

    Write up that collision report!

    What are the odds? Couple nearly killed by falling cow

    By Associated Press

    MANSON, Wash. (AP) - A Chelan County fire chief says a couple were lucky they weren't killed by a cow that fell off a cliff and smashed their minivan.

    District 5 Chief Arnold Baker says they missed being killed by a matter of inches Sunday as they drove on Highway 150 near Manson.

    The 600-pound cow fell about 200 feet and landed on the hood of the minivan carrying Charles Everson Jr. and his wife Linda of Westland, Mich., who were in the area celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary. They were checked at Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution.

    The van was heavily damaged, including a broken windshield.

    Charles Everson says he kept repeating, "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."

    The year-old cow had been reported missing by a breeder. It was euthanized at the scene.

    Now that would be a show stopper of a case report. I love that area over there and have friends in the area.

    My dad once had a deer jump off of an embankment and crash through his driver's side window. Nothing but minor scratches but had his Buick Roadmaster pretty beat up. The OSP trooper who helped them carried duct tape and black plastic sheeting because they have so many of those kinds of accidents along the Columbia Gorge.

    I was also teaching an FBI Class in Anchorage once and they took me out to the Prince Alexis for lunch. All along the way were "watch out for the moose" signs. Turns out that there are dozens of people killed every year crashing into moose!!!

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    Out in that neck of the woods, I can bet $50 someone stopped and said "can I take that cow?"

    As I was leaving McDonalds today (after overeating as usual) I walked through the cars waiting in the drive-through, and right there is a jeep with a rack attached to the back that has 4 dead deer stacked on top of each other and "covered" by a tarp about 2 feet too short. Almost left my value meal in the parking lot. Yuck.

    They'd find a way to fuck it up and make deer nuggets.
