Today’s DMN Metro section features this story about John Woodbury, bulldozer driver. The story is full of awesomeness, including the parts about the family business, Gunsmoke reruns, and the fact that Woodbury “gets jounced around the cab of a huge dozer, something so large and powerful he probably couldn’t have envisioned it in his youth” (emphasis mine). But I especially love this quote and the set-up for it:
“If you’re not interested in what you’re doing, you might as well forget it,” he said. Mr. Woodbury, who wears a graying moustache, said he’s totally at ease in a dozer cab. “To me, it’s like I’m at home with my wife.”
Oh, and I don’t want to ruin the ending. Okay, I’ll ruin the ending:
The hole awaits his return.
