James, the driver of the 65 foot long delivery truck, never hesitated, never doubted, never showed fear, and never hit anything, even though he came within inches of our precious new workshop barn. He backed that big truck around like it was a sports car. He was fun to watch.
James was a big man, well over 6 feet tall, and almost as wide. Ryan and I speculated that James may have been a football player, so I asked him if he “played ball.” James said, “No, but my little brother did.” It turns out that his little brother is Pro-Bowler Marvel Smith, offensive tackle for the Pittsburg Steelers, who has a couple of SuperBowl rings.
