      Hi PEAT, I’m here now. Just getting home from the fire station. I was down on I 80 this morning extinguishing a semi truck fire. It was hauling berries. Worked out good for the wife. She’s making about 20 pies right now. So what’s up bud?

        As I’ve said many times before…….”I’d rather roll around naked in a bathtub filled with shards of glass and razorblades while violently sodomizing myself with a weedwacker than I would to live in Lackawanna county.” Lackawanna county is the reason space aliens refuse to visit us anymore.

        You must be a Forest Gump type guy, that just happens to be there at the most opportune moment.
        Again Liar Liar
        In a previous post you mentioned that you live near the accident, and it was indeed well inside of Lackawanna County
