Muffler Man Deconstructed

Kyla sent me a link to this picture from the San Fransciso Gate’s Day in Pictures:

“Saving face: Gene Lanich normally maintains a brisker pace in Springfield, Ill., but lately he’s been hampered by a large Bunyan. A weekend windstorm decapitated a statue of the legendary lumberjack at a local eatery. ”
So sad.
Hoping that I’ll be able to add the Bunyan to my “Big Things” Photos sometime soon.

    This is me! And the local eatery’s roof is what decapitated the head off the statue. The statue is a city historical landmark that sits in front of a local car repair shop.
    The morning after the storm there were over 150,000 with out power due to the F2 tornado’s (two of them) swept diagonally SW to NW through the city

    Ha! That’s my old friend Gene (the guy walking, not the head). I haven’t seen him in a couple of years so it was a pleasant surprise to see him here.
    Gene’s always been a go-getter but I had no idea he would go to such extremes to get ahead in life.
    …see what I did there was…
