FF55, 1/18/13, Art Class Image:

"...Ten freight cars full... Jumped the track...oranges piled and piled...
The officials shoveled oranges... knee deep
for five hours in the night..."                                

> I saw 10 cars bent with oranges flowing outward, every where.
>Sarah saw a section of track with oranges in clusters
>Anthony saw RR signs flashing ; and a young person with a flashlight!

          One more compilation of a scene from letters. " Lovingly Georgia"  p. 221
Edited by Clive Giboire. Simon & Schuster, Inc. NYC, NY. c.1990.

Everything depends on our perspective. Loved it Izzy--and the source sounds fascinating.

Cool 55. It also reminds me of a real happenstance in my life, when I was but a toddler. My mother was driving us over the Sierras in a blizzard and she turned across the highway toward a Cafe neon light. She did not see the semi-truck in the other lane, and it hit us. My mother was thrown out of the car and hurt badly. I must have been tossed around inside the car like crazy (no seatbelts) because my head was cracked open and had 22 stitches in the ER. And the truck's freight? Frozen turkeys.....all over the highway!!!
