Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:26pm glenn:

that turned my world upside diddly-down.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:28pm glenn:

so you know what's great? driving down the road, having the bolts that hold your front tire on shear off, and watching your tire go across four lanes of traffic and take out a dude's car. that was my afternoon.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:29pm Holly in NC:

!!Glenn!!! Are you OK? Other driver OK? ??!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:30pm Gary:

Whoa. Was everyone okay?

Yoikes! I hope all are OK, glenn.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:33pm listener james from westwood:

Sweet fancy Moses, glenn! Glad everyone's fine!
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:35pm glenn:

my van will even be back on the road tomorrow. the towing charge though, oy vey.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:39pm Holly in NC:

No AAA (Triple A) in Canada, Glenn? Down here in the States it is the ONLY insurance worth carrying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:39pm Rich in Washington:

That sucks, Glenn. Glad no one was hurt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:39pm Jeff Golick:

Glad you're ok, glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Good ol' Clarence White soloing just then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:40pm Rich in Washington:

Gary Paxton. I have some of his later religious records. He cut one of the most disturbing anti-abortion songs ever heard this side of Lil' Marky.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:40pm northguineahills:

Wow, that's a lot of fun for an afternoon, glenn. glad everything else is ok.

Been here since the beginning. Off for a volunteer community job to consult on web mapping. I'm not pulling a paycheck, but I might as well put my expertise to use.

I knew you would crack us up w/ this set. Here here, and kudos to Majorie Geier Allen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/19/14 6:41pm Rich in Washington:

I also think I heard a perhaps apocryphal story about him having an affair with Tammy Faye Bakker.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:41pm glenn:

caa, but the thing is, the cops want you off the road immediately, so you can't wait for one of their trucks. you have to take the first guy that comes along.
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:42pm ndbob:

He did Rich
Avatar Tue. 8/19/14 6:43pm northguineahills:

Doug tells jokes?
