Tuesdays Show and Tail . . . Road Rage!

ROAD RAGE!











When you cannot make up your mind between two evenly balanced courses of action, choose the bolder.
- W.J. Slim



Just make sure that when you are making up your mind between two actions - that they ARE evenly balanced - or you just might get in trouble. - Chatty

i want that simulator for rides for the dogs. great idea. no gas cost. i am thinking if i were in a little car and saw a big elephant i would not try to pass it, common sense, but since I have seen that one, i will always turn around if i see and elephant in the road. ha ha on that one.

Remington said...

WOWZERS! I would not want to meet that guy on the road!

Shanda said...

The elephant shots are great. I so remember coming up on an elephant and having to back up quickly. When they flap their ears and trumpet, It means you better move. Love it!

I can't imagine meeting a elephant on the road but years ago our family went through a drive through park and stopped for some rinosaurus crossing the road...one decided his horn itched and used our car to rub it. Left a wierd dent and when I took the car in for a estimate after a little wreck the man asked me if the dent was from the accident and I said "no a rinosaurus did that" He gave me a very funny look and probably said to himself "Bet she sees pink elephants too"

BALANCE... That is the key, Sandie.. Right?????

I did experience Road Rage one time --but thankfully, not with an elephant. A man cut in front of me and almost made me wreck. I blew my horn... That made him mad. I thought he was going to get out a gun and shoot me... Scared me to death. I do not blow my horn much anymore. There are some NUTS in this country.
Hugs,
Betsy

Well I think I would rather meet an Elephant in a Road Rage... instead of some of the drivers I see!! LOL...

Love the elephant!

I'm concerned about Angela, but maybe she's having trouble with Blogger. Wouldn't you know...the one week I have something done ahead of time for Show and Tail. I guess I'll keep it for next week. :)

Jeanie said...

Oh my! is all I can say about the elephant pictures....just, oh my.

Doris Sturm said...

My goodness! That elephant was really fed up with those cars on "his" road...I'm glad I was not driving!

Love the driving simulator for the dog with the fan...I did that for Gizzy just this morning. I drove him really slowly around the lake while he was hanging out the window feeling the breeze in his face. He loves that :-)

Ann said...

that car didn't stand a chance against that elephant. I don't think I would have tried to pass him.

Angela said...

That was scary Sandie! I wouldn't have wanted to be in that car for nothing! That will make me think twice about going on a safari with elephants on it!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!

Hi Sandie.....Wowsers. That elephant was something else! Wouldn't want to see him coming in my direction. Great post, as always. Susan

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Hi, my friend... that is some kind of road rage. Remind me not to make an elephant mad at me!

I'm late visiting from my post last week (still recuperating from an old injury which has kicked up again), but despite my tardiness, I still wanted to thank you for your sweet comments. I appreciate them and you more than you know.

XO,

Sheila

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Wednesday morning. Had trouble sending comments to blogs yesterday. I have no idea why. Anyway, I enjoyed your post. Wouldn't want to see the elephant coming my way! ha! Talk about road rage. Ooooo weeeeee. Take care. Susan

I liked the quote - choose the bolder.

(And your advice was well-taken, too. Balance - such an important thing...)
