On the road

Texas road kill sighted (more than the usual, I might add).

1) Buzzard
2) Calf
3) Dogs
4) Cat
5) Coyote
6) Possum
7) Possum
8) Possum
9) Skunk


In the middle of no where Texas, along the road (nearest “city”, Thrall, population 710, twenty miles away), out pops a little shack with lights on.

“Beer, pool, girls” it reads.

All for the weary nomad I suppose.


We’re driving by this ranch in the middle of ranchland, Texas, with the usual bunch of cows chewing cud, and a couple of bored looking horses standing around.

And then I see it. I think I’m dreaming, and slow down to look again.

It’s there. There was a real, live, contented looking Emu strutting around the driveway of the farmhouse.

(that's not my picture, it's just a picture of an emu. I didn't have a camera handy then).

Hi Sunil
Everything's bigger in Texas - even the chickens.
