A LONG RIDE HOME

One of the interesting things about being of the road are the interesting people you meet. We met this fellow who said he lost his horse and needed a ride. We obliged and spent many hours listening to his stories about the "Old West" and how things have changed. I asked if he was from Texas or some other area of the Southwest. "No," he replied. I'm from the West Village. We let him out at the next exit. You meet a lot of strange people on the road!

  2. I wouldn't have imagined him to be very talkative. Probably just a cliché.

  3. Did you help him to climb to this podest?

  4. He seems a bit stiff to me. Surprised he opened up and shared so much.

  5. I'm surprised he talked so much. He seems so stiff and wooden.

    Happily back in Fort Lauderdale? Did the Mercedes make it OK? Or did you get a Porsche? My memory ain't so good no more.

  8. I'm glad that I maxed the photo because I got a closer look at the sculpture. Great facial expression and detail, esp the colour of the neck scarf.

  9. We have our share of strange people here, but we obviously can't compete in your league!

  10. Glad to see you made it back safely. And I think it was a good idea to let your hitchhiker out. He doesn't look trustworthy to me.

  15. Hey he was in town not too long ago with his horse.

  16. hmmm...
    He seems to have a very wooden expression on his face. Must be all that time he spends in the sun.

    It seems the FTLDP Staff Limo attracts unusual riders...
