Weather: Beautiful, just Fricken Beautiful
Trail Conditions: Should be drying out some
I spent a lot of time on I-90 yesterday with Mom, just sitting there enjoying the scenery along side the road. Tuesday I made it between Rockford and Chicago with no problem, yesterday was another story. Good thing that I had good company along to BS with. We sat for 20 minutes at one point without moving. But now I got Mom back up north where she belongs.
I stopped at the Ohara Oasis on the way down to take a short break and a guy stopped me crying and asked if I could help him and his family get back home. I blew him off as I had to pee pretty bad, but when I came back outside feeling a little guilty I looked for him, only to find hime on the other side of the parking lot getting back into a semi all by himself. My middle finger did not do the situation justice, what a fucking douche bag.
One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”
“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the lawyer said.
“But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.”
“Bring them along,” the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, “You may come with us, also.”The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!”
“Bring them all as well,” the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, “Sir, you are too kind.
Thank you for taking all of us with you.
The lawyer replied, “Glad to do it. You’ll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high.”
C’mon…did you really think there was such a thing as a heartwarming lawyer story?
