Never a Dull Moment on Rural Kentucky Roads!

Driving along Route 42 in rural Kentucky, sometimes I notice funny or unusual things. A few weeks ago, I found myself driving next to an old VW bus with a canoe strapped on top. Then I noticed the license plate on the bus was from Washington state. That in itself is pretty unusual around here. As I passed the bus, it became even more interesting. I noticed that the man in the passenger seat was playing a saxophone!



That sight made my day! Usually, all I see around here is SUVs driven by soccer moms, pickup trucks with men on their way to work, or the occasional farmer on a tractor. But... a VW bus from Washington, with a canoe on top and a passenger playing the saxophone... I wish I could see that every day! It appeals to my appreciation for quirkiness and makes me miss the big city where you never knew what you might see.

This morning, on my way home from the store, I saw another sight that amused me. A man driving a Model A... talking on a cell phone! Nostalgia with a modern touch...

That's fun. I saw a man driving with a small white dog on his lap recently.

My sister's Wheaten Terrier sits between my sister and her husband in the front seat of their motor home.

Both such quirky sights! Would probably have been fun to have been in that VW van groovin away to the sax.
