    Lest we never forget the saying by A. A. Milne: "If a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow."

    not sure about an accident. It looked like the truck was turning around on the road and backed into the ditch. Will take a wrecker to pull it out. Maybe it's clear by now? This happened around 11am.
