Things are not always as they appear, AGAIN!

An old man lay sprawled across three entire seats in the movie theater.

When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the old man,

"Sorry sir, but you're only allowed one seat."

The old man just groaned but didn't budge.

The usher became more impatient.

"Sir, if you don't get up from there I'm going to have to call the manager."

Once again, the old man just groaned.

The usher marched briskly back up the aisle, and in a moment he

returned with the manager.

Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move the old disheveled

man, but with no success.

Finally they summoned the police.

The officer surveyed the situation briefly then asked, "All right buddy what's your name?"

"Fred," the old man moaned.

"Where ya from, Fred?" asked the police officer.

With terrible pain in his voice, and without moving a muscle, Fred replied, "The balcony."


Well it was funny the first time I read it.

We as humans can wench, or smile at someone else's’ misfortune. Check this low down dirty bridge out. It is in Durham, North Carolina.

We have never decapitated our motor home, but came close at the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in Tennessee. A very low RR over pass, but we missed it by a couple inches.

I received an e-mail from Joan, the Utah Grandkid’s other Grand. She said they decapitated their RV once. That has got to hurt.

Thanks for coming by the log.

Sometimes things are not just black and white, but sometimes DANGEROUS!

FDR in his modified Plymouth 4dr convertible. I think this is still at Warm Springs, we saw it when we were there.

Your joke proved a point and brought a chuckle here. After snow ending here this morning finally at 4 PM the sun is peeping through and it is a bit warmer...Upper 30's outside. All the snow melted.


Can't judge a book by it's cover. We know a man who took a U-Haul truck through a drive thru at McDonald's and took the roof canopy off with it as he did it.

I cringed the entire way through that video...ouch!...and ouch again!!!
I worry about the train that travels over that bridge that keeps getting pounded and bombarded. (I would worry, because my son is an engineer, and I think about things like that now...)
Love the first story...another ouch.

When we bought our tacos at Chili Bandera today we notinced someone had messed up the drive-thru roof. Evidently with a too tall turck. Glad you and Sherry haven't had anything like that happen. Probably due to the two of you working together to watch.

regarding joke...did no one think to ask the man if he was OK???

I was blown away by the bridge video...obviously all the drivers of these high profile vehicles had/have no idea of how tall their vehicles are (were) :D Our motor home was somewhere between 13 and 14 feet from street to top of AC way I could have gone under this bridge. I now have my new post...Don's and my experiences with tall motorhome in Louisiana :D And another post of what I did to the rear of our brand new motorhome :D Thanks for the inspiration Jack!!!

Forgot to tell you about the friends, when we lived in an RV resort in Tucson, who went to the bank with their truck + camper and tried to go through the outside teller you've guessed the camper ended up on the ground. The funniest part was these folks were nutty as fruit cakes...and when they told us they were laughing so hard they could barely stand :D :D :D

Oh my gosh that would hurt - we were driving today - Kelly was - and we almost got hit - avoided it by a couple feet - and it would have been Kelly's fault - 3 cars! Phew. sandie
