Hubby had a few days off, so we hit the road for a mini-trip. We found friends along the route. 😉
Yes I DID want to flag them down!
We visited with this group at the rest stop. They were New York bound for a relief effort. God Bless em ♥
Wouldn’t it be great if more companies felt this way about their people?!
AND we made it to the Show-Me state of Missouri. Have a great “rest of the week”!
Remember to be nice to people….we never know what they may be going through ♥
The signs on vehicles can be very entertaining… one I will never forget for as long as I live… I was following a truck and horse trailler, the horses tail was hang out the back… on the horse box was the following sign..”You sit on my tail and I’ll sh..t on your bonnet!” that just appealed to my sense of humour and I naturally pulled back from the back of the vehicle…
LOL! I can see where you would never forget that one! 😉
What a clever post! Rich and I are both on the interstate all the time, and I know I see trucks that make me smile, but I never thought to show anyone. These are good, Paula! When we used to pass the semis for the company Rich used to work for, we would always salute. 🙂
Bulldog mentioned a horse trailer. We were following a horse trailer once as a family, and you could see the horses’ behinds as we followed. My brother yelled, “Hey look! That’s what Dad calls us when he’s mad at us!” … Dad laughed. 🙂
Well now you understand my attention span in the car! No wonder hubby bought me a zoom lens. (She’ll snap pics and quit singing!?)
Cute story about your bubba and the horse. The things that stick in our mind forever! 😉
So many wonderful sights on the road!
😉 The candy truck made me hungry though….we had to stop at a candy store later that day!
Who says advertising doesn’t work!
Paula, I just love your perspective on road trips! That was fun. Boy do I have a lot of catching up to do. Had two months worth of word press in my spam folder.
oh my, Darla….delete, delete, delete! 😉
In good conscience, I cannot. 😛 But saying that, I am just giving the old ones a brief scan. LOL
Love those trucks! and also that part of the country!
It is a beautiful area to drive….and to visit!
Paula – You had me with the title of the blog. The pictures are great and you’ve lined them up to give us a wonderful story.
This was a “quick post” day….and I am so bad at titles!! haha! Hope your day has been a good one, Sheri! 😉
Fun trucks! Great way to document a road trip.
Thanks…..and if I had “planned” this….I would have sought out more trucks! 😉
What a great post PSB! And even greater that you and Hubby got away for a few days. I love the ‘lens’ you applied to your travels…of the trucks. I would have wanted to flag down that candy truck too! Happy Trails to you! xox
I know there was some red licorice aboard, Bon-bon….I could smell it! 😉
There’s always something entertaining to see on a road trip. Thanks for sharing.
Yes there is….and it is always a surprise! (which is even better) Happy day, friend ♥
As kids we used to madly wave at truckers on family road trips. I thought they were so cool and then Smokey and the Bandit came out and I wanted to be a trucker with an ape! I outgrew that LOL!
The arm motion to get them to toot their horn….we always did that!!! Smokey and the Bandit….haha…loved those movies. You are so funny! 😉
haha I’m mostly only funny when I’m not trying!
😉 you’re a “cute” funny ♥
Love those trucks and that last quote, especially.:)
😉 It’s one I repeat often….I think it needs to be heard 😉
I date a log truck driver for a while. He was a rufus, but I did love driving that truck. What a fun game, very entertaining. Hope you are having a great trip!
Well the trip is over….but it was a fun four days. We were so ready for the break! I love seeing the log trucks when we are around Hot Springs, etc. But I can’t imagine driving one! (a rufus, huh?) 😉
When I was a kid my my Uncle Milford would come thru town in his semi. When it was time for him to leave, I’d get to ride with him a few miles outside of town and dad would follow and pick me up. I thought I was in tall cotton. 😉
Actually a doofus – maybe this spelling will get past the stinking autocorrect 🙂 I loved being the tallest vehicle on the road. Logging trucks go into the backwoods so it’s like 10-wheeling
Well….I googled rufus and came up with a boy-baby….so they are similar. 😉 Sounds like a rough but FUN ride!
LOL – the truck was fun – the fella, not so much.
and so it goes…..
I have cousins in Missouri, but this post is the closest I’ve ever been 😉
Oh…..you’ll have to tell me what area….I’ll drop in on them! 😉
Believe it or not my uncle Jon is the mayor of a small town called Otterville. 🙂
I have never heard of Otterville, but now I will look it up!
How is Joplin doing? I just read an article in a knitting magazine about a 9 year old knitter who knitted lots of stuffed elephants for the people of Joplin and her mother took her there to hand out a little relief. That was what she could do–that’s what counts!
She is one of my “likes” on my fb page! Amazing. Joplin is strong and rebounding. I see huge “positive” changes each time we visit. Still, I cannot help but feel sad when I walk into the rebuilt stores and know that life was lost there. This is part of how I know Joplin folks are strong. They move forward! 😉
What great trucks! I love to read the panels when I’m driving nearby! Looks like a fun trip! 🙂
😉 We love road trips….the long ones & the shorts ones, too ~
I love seeing some of the cool trucks and vehicles on road trips. I hope when they say their most valuable resource is 63 feet ahead, they don’t mean the engine. 🙂
Well we were going for the driver….but you never know! 😉
Yeah, I know. 🙂 Just joking.
😉 I knew that….or I thought I knew that! 🙂
