Cute Smiles, Snow, and Upside Down Trucks

Yep, that says, "Emergency Assistance Illinois State Police 309-752-4911 CALL COLLECT.

I feel safe.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm biased about certain things. I mean, I know I'm biased about everything, but it seems to me that I can see the bias when I actually think about it and make an attempt to recognize it. I recognize quite a bit of bias in a lot of things I think. I just wonder how much bias there is that I don't recognize. Anyway... that is one cute kid!

And that is two cute kids!

This is what winter looks like. Remember winter? We're going to hope that this winter I keep my truck "Between the ditches, shiny side up and rubber side down." (Sorry about that, except for the usual foul language, I hardly ever break into Truck Driver Talk... but in some situations it just seems natural.)

You don't need winter weather to mess up. This was a big one. I was in stop and go traffic for two hours coming up to this. There were many vehicles involved that I didn't get pictures of, and lots and lots of skid marks. I didn't see much more than what's in the pictures, because I was concentrating on getting through there as fast as safely possible so the people behind me that had been waiting two hours could get where they needed to go as well. I just held up the camera and hoped I got some good shots. The reason the quality is so low is because to get pictures that look decent from shots you took without looking, you have to crop quite a bit away. ;-)

(Here's a first - I had to open my GPS to find out where I am... didn't realize I didn't know until I went to type it!)

Find a Penny, Pick it Up

Ok, everyone knows the old poem:

Find a penny, pick it up
All the day you'll have good luck!

BUT... what happens if you find more than one penny in a day??? I mean, do you get extra good luck? Does it cancel out? Do you have to put the first one where the second one was found? Do you get extra good luck if you leave it there for someone else to find? If so, do you get even more if you walk past it and "find" it a few more times before someone picks it up?

I'm looking for answers, people!

Quick Note

Next time you have a problem with what a truck driver is wearing while walking into the truck stop, reconsider, and think about what you wear on your way from the bedroom to the shower.

P.S. I know the socks look goofy with the sandals, but I don't want to touch them until I'm close to the shower.
