    1050 BC while riding home in his wagon after a long day in the Roman Marketplace, Wally the Wagon Master’s horses were surprised by a small child running out from between a couple of houses. This started the horses running out of control through the cobblestone streets. On one rather large bump Wally lost the reigns, and the horses were then totally on their own… they jumped over a pile of manure at the end of one street causing the wagon to ramp over it, which in turn caused the first recorded “vehicular flight” when both wally and his wagon soared 7 feet up into the air for a distance of 45 feet…. both wally and the wagon recovered, but the horses have been jittery ever since.

    Have a nice day!!!
