Hanging Dog

John sent me this story yesterday.

A lady was telling her neighbor that she saw a man driving a pick-up truck down the interstate, and a dog was hanging onto the tailgate for dear life! She said that if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him.

A few weeks later, her neighbor saw this truck at the Bass Pro Shop in Daphne, Alabama.
The pick-up truck driver is a local taxidermist with a great sense of humor!
Can you imagine how many people try and stop this guy?
I was in 6th grade. My sister was in 4th grade. She had been annoying me on the school bus and untied my shoe. Not wanting to let her get one over on me, I grabbed her and said, "Get down there right now and tie it back."
She crouched down over the top of my shoe and tied it back. It should have been a red flag that she was so compliant.
When the driver came to our stop, she ran off the bus. I couldn't move. She had tied my shoelace in a knot to the leg of the seat in front of me. The driver kept waiting and waiting. I couldn't budge. I couldn't get the knot out.
He finally had to get up, come back to my seat and cut me loose with his pocket knife. I took off running after her to cheers from the other children, "Get her! Get her!"
I would have posted this on Flashback Friday, except I didn't have a picture of it. I do, however, have a picture of me after she knocked out my two front teeth.


  1. Hahaha! Love the dog! Love the shoelace story!

  2. No way...can't wait for that photo....not because I'm a glutton for pain or anything but because I could possibly show my sister the pic and say it could have been worse :)

  3. That is just the funniest thing I have seen today. Thank you!

  4. Great story and that photo is priceless. I have relatives in Daphne. I'll ask them if they have seen this!

  5. Hysterical!! You got to love sisters and the dog..well I'm speechless ;)

  6. hi I found you via YaYa's post in which your blog is featured. I wonder how many accidents were caused by people looking at that dog and worrying about it!! I think it's kind of freaky, even though I love dogs (I have one!)

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
