Wagon Teamster is struck in route


http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Feb/10/Bob_By_Wagon_Ready_4_Walls.jpgDear friends of Dakotah;I just received a phone call from an East Coast Wagon Teamster, named Lauren, who let me know that at 11:27AM this morning, Mr. Bob Skelding ( http://www.wagonteamster.com/) was struck by tanker truck while traveling through Scooba, Mississippi this afternoon on Highway 45.I contacted the local hospital emergency room to find out how Bob is doing, but am waiting for a call back. Initial reports are grim, as I was informed that all two of his Percheron horses were killed in the accident; however the condition of his other two horses have not yet been confirmed.I will post a story about Bob once I have more information, but at this time, please hold Bob and his family in your prayers.Peace to you all,http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Feb/10/6-28_Driving_3_and_me_wagon02.jpgChuck

Humans are a funny species; we seem to be at our best when things are at their worst.
