sometimes you just gotta' row

rolling along

with one comment

late forties, wore another ten.

a Newfoundlander working the Alberta oil fields. instead of returning home during the 28 day turnaround (nine days off), he stayed in Fort McMurray. Sept 9th 2009.

en route to the beer store, nearly pedaled his bicycle through a crosswalk; run over by a Jeep. since he was riding instead of walking the bike, pedestrian protection and legal recourse wasn’t available to him.

his perspective from the wheelchair “…still got a smile and a beating heart”.
