I can recall the day that the big red truck came down the alley in back of our place...garbage and junk spilling over the sides, large silver buckets hanging from the sides, and men yelling at one another to beat the band. Being the last house on the route and the truck bulging at the seams with its load, the gents all jumped back on the truck and with the wing power of 10,000 flies the truck went forward and in 50 feet, maybe less, it was airborne as it flew off to the dump in south city. Amazing....and that's my story, and I'm sticking to it (in the same manner the flies stuck to the big red truck).
