    A massive bull, horns and all, walking down the side of the road - and when we rounded the curve, his cow harem. Figured out we were in open rangeland.

    Yesterday on our drive home... a very large, well muscled man of African descent, riding a pink motorcycle with silver flame detailing.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

    ~A very hairy but confident older man in a teensy yellow bikini on one of our NC vacations. Saw him every day while we were there.
    ~A man in civil war garb atop a horse in the median near the Blue Ridge mountains during election time one year. He had a black powder rifle and all.
    ~A mule wearing make-up and clothes at a roadside stand in the Caribbean.

    Oh wow - this reminded me. Totally forgot. Years ago, I had to commute for a few months on this country back road. I was carpooling with a co-worker and we passed by, um, yeah. Two men and a woman. Right on the side of the road. On the trunk of their car. You get my drift.

    This may, sadly, not be strange, but once in Cape May, NJ I was about to go to the beach from the boardwalk when I saw a sewer rat the size of an overfed housecat under the steps.

    I figured that was his section of beach at night and kept on walking.

    Is it enough to say simply I spent a month in Bangkok Thailand? What didn't I see, hear, taste or try?! (A lot actually, but I saw most of it)

    When I was growing up, I lived in Ottawa (Canada's capital). It gets super, super hot in the summer (think 90-100F). This one day, while in the ByWard Market, I was walking around wearing shorts and a t-shirt (like many other Canadians there). This station wagon pulls up beside me, stacked with skiis on the top and a window rolled down. I looked in to see a family of four, wearing sweaters. They then asked..

    "Where's all the snow?? I thought you Canadians always had snow!"

    I've lived in NJ all my life and spent plenty of summers going to Cape May. Although I've never seen the Cape May rats in person, I have heard LOTS of stories about them. lol

    Years ago in high school, 3 years in a row I saw a large (not to sound rude but he was very overweight), hairy man in a speedo on the beach. Two years is was a blue speedo and one year it was green.

    That was really something Darlene!

    Both of our odd things were in FL

    ~ in magic kingdom there was a big non english speaking family. Their approx-11 - 12 year old daughter was walking around completely topless. She was at the age she was just getting breasts. A Disney employee was trying to explain why she needed a shirt on to the much confused people.

    ~ at Disneys water park my youngest yells really loudly "Mom that mans butt is naked!!!" There was a very large gentleman and if you looked very closely he had on a very small speedo type swimsuit. However all the material was covered by his excess flesh. I was pretty embarrase at my son yelling but more embarrassed my that large mans bare butt
