I could have put up with trench life with all of the hardships and discomforts except for one thing - RATS!
DAMN Straight !!!“After losing a leg, an eye and having been shot through the chest, Cher Ami, a WW1 homing pigeon, was sent from behind enemy lines. After reaching her destination she passed on the message that saved 194 men. Medics saved her and fitted her with a carved wooden leg. She died a year later, a hero.”

I was following Sid Gilman (owned Chargers at the time), stopped next to me at an intersection in his red Vette, asked for some directions to a location that I gave him, he went on ahead of me, as we drove he started slooowly drifting to the right, I thought he’d correct but never did, his front right clipped a parked car, a fiberglass explosion, lucky not as fast as the one above he was ok.
