A man from Austin, Texas raced in the Boston Marathon and figures he crossed the finish line about 30 seconds before the first bomb went off. His wife got hit with shrapnel but escaped serious injury.
Joe Berti and wife returned to Texas on Tuesday, and the next night, as he drove home from a meeting in Dallas on I-35, Joe's car got rocked by the explosion of the fertilizer plant in West, Texas. He survived that, too, even pulling over to snap a photo of the plume—as debris hit his car. Joe says, "People keep saying, 'Don't you feel unlucky?' and I was actually the opposite—saying not only do I not feel unlucky, but I feel blessed that my wife could be 10 yards from the explosion and not have a scratch."
Slacker and Steve are in awe about Joe, and what all he has recently experienced.

A family friend of ours has his favorite ski picture of himself up at his condo…He started dating a women one weekend they were together at the condo, and she notices the picture of him. Little did both of them know it was the first picture of them together. While he was in the front all smiles, she photo bombed the picture with her ski poles attached to her head like antennas.
