I Think Maybe I'd Stop Driving...

...if I had the same luck as a Canadian man who, about a decade ago, reportedly had a piece of rebar pierce his car's windshield, then his back seat and then go into his trunk. So, what is so bad about his luck? Well, history has kind of repeated itself but this time it was not a piece of rebar - it was an axe. Evidently an axe came flying through his windshield and struck him in the face causing a number of injuries but he is alive and not that badly injured considering...he could have been killed.

Right now, no one (except maybe the guy who threw it if that is what happened) including the injured man knows what happened or from where the axe came and wound up going through his windshield. It seems that a passerby saw the man's truck on the side of the road - he had somehow managed to pull off of the roadway -  and went to help. When she tapped on the window, Mr. Peddle woke up behind the wheel and saw his blood and the axe but reportedly cannot remember a thing about how it happened. More here and here.

You might think he is pretty luck not to have been injured by the rebar and not to have been killed by the axe but I am a believer in the old adage third time pays for all. Thus, I think it's time for him to give up driving and maybe live up to his namesake and sell his car. After all, the third time could be the clincher.

All the best,
Glenn B
