Sally is very busy today, so when I told her she should post this very funny LJ entry to the forums, she asked me to post it for her. So... I am.

*********************************************

Tuesday Rick and I went to IF to pick up some parts. We decided that since we are so busy we would use the time together to celebrate our upcoming anniversary, so we had dinner at Johnny Carino's.

When we were getting gas for the trip home, we saw this sign.

We decided that even with the good deal, we did not really need any more senior citizens.


Somewhere between Leadore and home there was a dead cow in the middle of the highway. A very large very black dead cow. I managed to avoid hitting it. Rick called the sheriff's office to tell them about it. I could only hear his part.

"Well, no, it is not an emergency, I just wanted to report a dead black cow in the middle of the highway near mile marker xx.
"Well that would be nice, I am sure the owner would like to know, but you might also want to have someone come out and put some cones around it or something so people can see it and don't run into it.
"No. It's actually in the middle of the highway. It's large and black and hard to see. You might want to.... yes. dead. On the highway.
"Ok. Thank you."

*********************************************

Aah, for living in the genuine, old-fashioned Wild West, eh? :D

That was hilarious! Reminds me of the time I called the police in the Deep South to report a man firing a rifle in my front (within city limits) yard.

me: There's a man firing a rifle in my front yard.
them: (calling over his shoulder to someone else in the Police station) Hey, Joe! Where's Bubba today? You're not sure? OK.
them: Ma'am, he's just shooting squirrels, I'm pretty sure.
me: You're pretty sure?
them: Yes, Ma'am. What color?
me: Color? Um, I think the squirrels around here are gray, Sir.
them: No, not the squirrels, Ma'am, the guy. Is he black or white?
me: I DON'T KNOW. HE HAD A GUN. I DIDN'T LOOK PAST THAT FACT!!!
them: Now, Ma'am, don't you worry your pretty little head. He's just shootin' squirrels. Nuttin' to worry about. Have a nice day, Ma'am.
