Road Trip Observations That Will Bore You All (Y'all)

  • I very recently hit the road to see my dad in Texas and discovered after 1,427 total miles, a lot of weird stuff crosses your mind.

    ** * ** Shouldn’t someone who is conscientious enough to want to save the world by driving a Toyota Prius Hybrid be conscientious enough to use their turn signals? Apparently not.

    ** * **OK - We’ve talked periodically about “KUBuckets” T-Shirts, so I got this really stupid, sophomoric, “Animal House” idea that we should all run out and get our avatars or user names tattooed on us!! LOL. I giggled for an hour driving down the road. Then it dawned on me - HOLY SMOKES! - the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. I’m seriously going to do it. Get my avatar with 'leaf underneath it. It’s gonna happen.

    ** * **How is it that the original Genesis ( you know, Phil Collins on drums and Peter Gabriel lead singer ) isn’t widely recognized as one of the greatest bands of all time?

    ** * **Whoever printed and posted the speed limit signs in Texas wasted a LOT of time.

    ** * **Has anyone ever seen Elvis and Lady Gaga together? Hmmmmmmmm…

    ** * **This one needs some serious contemplation - is there really anything in the world cooler than a cow? Think about it - you can’t phase a cow. You can honk at em, you can yell “MOOOO” at em, you can clang cymbals in their faces - nothin. They barely even blink. Like they just don’t care. And think about the products we get from them - how cool would bikers look going down the road on their Harleys wearing wool? Ever dunk a cookie in Diet Coke? Cows should all be issued Blues Brothers style sunglasses and just stand out in the field and look cool. They really should be the Official Animal of the United States of America. Or maybe they’re just deaf…?

    ** * **Smart phones are only as smart as their owners.

    ** * **I’ve never owned a convertible, but I’ve often wondered why people roll up the windows and lock the doors when they go into the mall. Really?

  • Where in Texas. Just like Kansas, some parts look better than others.

  • Yep, a cow in sunglasses is cool. Never tipped a cow-by the time I heard about it I was over the hill.

  • @nuleafjhawk The next time you go on a drive like that, get the “Round-up” CD by the Cincinnati Pops. It is outstanding. It has the best Cowboy Movie Songs and TV shows ever. It’s even got Frankie Lane singing a few including RawHide. As for Western Songs, The Magnificent Seven will always be my favorite

  • @nuleafjhawk I want to travel w/you! I like cows and steak and burgers!

  • @Crimsonorblue22

    Cows, steaks and burgers! Oh, my! - Dorothy.

  • @nuleafjhawk Whenever I pass a Prius I wish I had a bumper sticker saying,

    “Thanks for saving me some gas !!”

    Just kidding-no malice intended.

  • A quintessentially nuleafian post

  • @nuleafjhawk

    Have you seen the YouTube of a farmer in Kansas who serenades his cows with a trombone to the tune of “Royals” by Lorde? Pretty cool.

  • Pretty funny. At the end he plays something different and they join the chorus.

  • @RockChalkinTexas lol - who doesn’t like a good trombone serenade ?
