    Ask her why the buckboard wheels in the old Western's appear to be revolving clockwise, when the wheel is obviously turning counter clockwise.
    Might keep her out of your popcorn while she seeks a pic to study.

    My sister had 4 babies once, mama had been hit by a car and she collected the youngsters (with help of a not happy LEO) they didn't have their stink gland yet. She put them in a big box and got them cozy, then a couple days later the family was having a yard sale and she had them outside, a rodeo clown out of Wyoming happened by and bought 2 of them and then somebody else came along that knew a place to have the stinker removed and bought the other 2. The later had them for pets/guard animals, the prior worked them in his show.

    All in all pretty decent little animals.

    Daughter left Tupelo at 7AM. We had about 1.5 inch here, She ran I22, MS23,AL 24 into Decatur. Glimpsed me there as 2 inches on terrain, none on road. Up at I65 /TN scales same but a thin showing where tires not run. Said saw 4 to 6 cars off road from Tupelo to Decatur, just looked like slid off. Crash had I65/I440 exit eastbound stalled. NB went on thru and long pull north of Nashville was clear. All good on to E-Town and the Blue Grass over to Lex.
    Girl drives like Daddy used too... Comfortable, both feet flat on the floor.

    295 around Richmond was a show. Coming up 95 from Carolina the road got that eerie suspicious feeling. Perfectly clear but damp roads. Appeared to be maybe or maybe not treated kinda thing. Got on 295 N right after sunset and as soon as the temp hit 29 i started watching cars on the southbound side spinning into the ditch and hitting guard rails. Slowed to 35 and ran with my hazards on while traffic whizzed by me apparently oblivious to the carnage happening across the way. Got parked, and couldn't even walk across the pavement it was so slick. Trodded through the snow and grabbed a double duece and said a prayer.
    I can deal with alot, but I need to know what I'm riding on. Some of these dudes never slacked a tap. F me. As soon as I take 34 and say hi to the wife think I'm going to grab a load to Fla where all of the normal people are.
     
    InTooDeep, dwells40, Eldiablo and 10 others Thank this.

    I’m out here working on the Truck. With the short days, I’ve no choice. It’s 22 degrees. Something peaceful about working at night. No distractions. Warmer weather would be nice. No end in sight.
