Construction delays are commonplace in these parts sometimes causing delays of an hour or more. As I passed the 'Caution Construction Ahead' sign today on the Crooked Road, an audible sigh escaped, I tightened my grip on the wheel in preparation for what may become a long, long line of built-up traffic. What I did find as I inched my way toward the dual stop and slow sign was a playful flagger. Passing slowly, I yelled out the open window, "Nice moustache!" I smiled. My son chuckled, "I was thinkin' the same thing." A little unexpected lightness to what must be a trying job at times, taming the tigress behind the wheel.
