The last few days around here have been a whirlwind of activity for me. A true blessing in my book of life. I enjoy nothing more than being active and laughing and feeling more like the old ME again.
Trucker and I had a nice couple of days confined together on the truck. We went from Memphis, TN (home base) to the Alabama/Georgia line to a small town called Phoenix City where he was delivering several thousand pounds of Rye Grass. The countryside was beautiful, the weather perfect. At least in the cab of the truck with the AC blowing perfect. Hot enough to pass out outside however. Good ole southern weather. For those that are not familiar with southern weather in the summer let me see if I can explain it to you. Imagine running into a the ocean or lake, drenching yourself in the wonderful cool water, then imagine yourself dripping wet when you get out of the water. From head to toe wet. Only it's not ocean water it's simply sweat running down your body. That's a southern summer.
Besides the beautiful countryside we seen along the way, I also seen some new and unusual sights as well. I haven't been able to load the pictures onto the computer yet and will get to it when I have the time. For now just picture this in your head. Use the wonderful imagination I know you all have.
Trucker and I are driving along and a pick up truck was in front of us and it had what appeared to be a lovely old cabinet of some sort in the back. I love antiques and old furniture so I had to look it over as we passed. As we passed the truck and was driving up ahead I couldn't help but notice the couple inside. They appeared to be in their mid 40's and she was practically sitting on top of him. Now nothing wrong with this actually but sorta unusual to see couples this age doing this. At least to me anyway. We continue driving not giving the couple another thought. A few miles down the road I notice them coming up beside of us again and this time they are staying right next to us (on my side of the truck) and not attempting to go around, but just staying the same speed. I looked down at the driver and notice his passengers hand on his thigh. OK, again no big deal, but they wouldn't pass or go around us. They finally backed off and got behind us again. I told Trucker something was up with them and it was strange. Trucker just smiled this stupid little grin and didn't say much about it. A couple of more miles up the road and here they come again on my side once more. This time I didn't look over at them and just kept looking straight ahead. I mean, you can never tell what someone might be up to like that. This couple continued playing cat and mouse with us for several miles. Finally I couldn't help but look over at them again and when I did I almost fell out of the truck onto the interstate. I know my mouth must have been hanging open to my chest by this point. The man in the truck had exposed his passengers left breast and had his hand cupped over it and was having himself a high ole time. And grinning at me like the cat that caught the canary. After finally remembering to close my mouth and look away I started laughing so hard. Of course Trucker wanted to know what was up then. I got out my camera and seriously thought about taking their picture when they came up beside us again, but I just couldn't do it. Gosh how I wanted to, but just couldn't. Later on they finally backed up behind us once more and then came around on Trucker's side to give him a nice little show as well. You should have seen the shit eating grin on Trucker's face then! There's nothing better than a free peep show to Trucker. HA. After that there was nothing else that quite competed for laughter on the trip. Unless you count this one sign at a restaurant we passed. The name of this place was called: Road Side Cuisine. This made for some pretty good laughter as well, trying to imagine exactly what was on their menu.
