Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
Hey, Buddy! You can't park that thing here!

While I was outside doing chores this morning, a tour bus drove down our road. The driver was really booking it, too. So either he knew where he was, or thought he heard banjo music.

I'd hate to be the guy who had to turn that bus around at the end of the road.

I was once directed past your house by my GPS in an attempt to make a yarn thingie. I knew better than to take that
route. How much of "here be dragons" is past your house?

My road is fine (just as it is in front of my house) until it ends. Understand that this is a private road, so is not supposed to be mapped as a through street. But it does go through. The other private "road" that connects to it is more of a boulder-filled culvert, though. I wouldn't take anything lower than my RAV-4 down it unless I absolutely had no other choice. So if I were a finally-clued-in bus driver, I would turn that bus around. I bet he went the rest of the way, though, and gave those passengers a story for later.

Goat babies are a pretty hot draw... but you'd think they'd schedule ahead. I always do. Speaking of which, are the goats coming up towards us at all this year? (When is the Shenandoah fair?)

Hee :) This reminds me of the time we had a full two tour buses of international cattle breeders descend on the family farm. One of the tour bus drivers, driving a brand new, just delivered to the bus company bus, thought he'd be smart and turn around in the parental driveway rather than in the pasture where there was loads of room and a graveled-for-the-occasion circle. The bus's back bumper cover paid the price for his hubris, and he had to drive the rest of the 2-week tour with a slightly rumpled bus.

(Apparently the bumper covers are designed with a sort of hinged breakaway, so it did what it was supposed to do and popped up, but it didn't go back down right and looked sort of cockeyed for the rest of the tour.)

I actually burst out with a laugh that sent both cats flying on the "heard banjos" line. I'm sure by the time he reached the other end of the road, he heard something... ;-)
