Saturday encore ~ Hank causes a six-ear pileup during rush hour



Rush hour around here begins after supper. 
Hank is the first to speed down the path to the back 40, 
with George, Alan and Lucy following too closely behind him.

Traffic flows smoothly until Hank makes an abrupt stop to talk to the lady with the camera.



George: Use your signals, why don't you?






George: I hate the way he drives.




Hank: I hate the way they tailgate.



Traffic is bumper to bumper but moving steadily...



...until the big guy brakes again.

George: Oh, for cryin' out loud. MOVE IT!

Lucy: I hope the cops don't catch me driving on the shoulder.


George: He's swerving all over the place! 

Alan: Stay in your lane!



Hank: Hrrmph. Bunch of backseat drivers. What do they know?

***

So the pictures aren't that great and neither is the commentary. For the funny part of this post, you have to imagine the lady with the camera sprinting down the path as fast as her short legs will carry her to get in front of the procession, then turning around, catching her breath, snapping a few shots, then sprinting down the path again, turning around, snapping a few shots, etc., all the while muttering under her breath, "I'm so glad nobody is watching this."

    It amazing how traffic jams will be anywhere even on the 7MSN. It's a good thing you don't have traffic signals and signs, what a mess that would be?

  7. I don't hve a traffic jam at feeding time. The cats "herd" me to the food and I better not think of making a break for it.

  8. I find it interesting that they follow along the path that they've worn down. Of course, picturing the photographer running ahead and snapping pictures is a funny visual too.

  14. The well used path and the fact that they don't go around Hank tickles me. There must be a 7MSN rule book they go by. Love this post.

  21. aha...that's why Hank was in a hurry.... You were running and he thought something fun or exciting was about to happen...

    it's funny they all just stay in the well won rut instead of fanning out and walking anywhere ....
