Neil Diamond almost killed me!!

So Ali and I were on our way back from visiting our parents this weekend. She decided to pop in one of her CD's, as I white knuckled it through the snow covered roads (see picture) trying to keep our car straight.
The song "Sweet Caroline" came on, and as I belted out the chorus and the bah-bah-bah part, while pumping my fist, the car ever so slightly veered towards the ditch. That's when the karaoke ended for me, and Ali finished the song with a wicked solo.
The drive home took an extra hour tonight, and we counted four cars in the ditch. The first one was the worst, with the vehicle ending up on the right side of the road, on it's side. There were a few cars already pulled over, but I pulled aside to see if I could be of any assistance. The passenger was in the back of a stopped car, and she appeared to be unharmed.
A quick assessment, and we were on our way.
As we were driving away, I told Ali that whenever I come across an accident scene, I get that little adrenaline rush, and just jump into action. I could never imagine turning the other cheek without helping in any way possible.
On a happier note, my beloved Montreal Canadiens beat their arch enemy Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.

P.S. Only 74 days until Blue Bomber training camp opens!!

There can't be many who can claim THAT!

Thinking about it, though, there was a time when The Osmonds made me want to end it all :-)

I feel the need to stop too. I was a lifeguard for 7 years and we were told that we are obligated to help because we actually know what we're doing!
