I was enjoying the fine relatively warm weather we've been having yesterday when I decided to shortcut over to one of my favorite country roads via a short(2 mi.)stretch of 4-lane highway.It's legal because it's not controlled access.Well,I had `er up to 32 or so and all was fine.The road is 60mph limit.I saw a F-150 approach from the rear but wasn't too concerned until I happened(thank God)to look up into the mirror and see he was gonna run over me.As I saw him dive behind me,my automatic reflexes took over.There was NO TIME to think.I guess I've done enough driving to know how to read that mirror,`cause I instantly swerved to the left lane AND HE PASSED ME ON THE RIGHT!!! Now guys and gals,I'm fairly stout of heart,but my blood turned to water, and how I had the strength to shake my fist at him as he disappeared at something over 60 mph surprises me.This nut is a true killer.He had the whole left lane at his disposal and chose to nearly kill me.I believe if I hadn't swerved he would have flattened me.So if I run a 4-lane anymore,I'll be on the berm.No more right lane antics for me!At least then I could jump over the guardrail. I WISH I could have gotten his license number.He's gonna kill somebody someday.I haven't told my wife `cause it would worry her so.I thank the Almighty for protecting me.Amen!Don-ohio was almost no more.
