"a bump in the road".......friendly fire ;)

It's ironic that you would choose to combine the two phrases given the discussions we have had over the last few days. As it happens, I guess maybe the third person I knew to die in Vietnam (it got worse) had a big role in popularizing the phrase "friendly fire".

Mike was a couple years older than me, so I knew his sister Mary better and his mom Meg better still. Meg worked in my high school office where I found myself spending an inordinate amount of time due to various violations of the rules of conduct. (Some things never change)

Just a little trivia on a slow day.
