    Dead Armadillos! When the heck did they move to Missouri? For the past few years I've seen them all over the place. Never ever before!

    I also found a crisp five dollar bill along with some empty McDonalds containers along the side of the road a couple of days ago when I stopped to take a break. No buildings or other people around.

    On my century ride Sunday, I rode by an itty bitty kitten on the side of the state road! One of our team called ASPCA (I didn't know that at the time and called my DH to go get him!) Poor thing.
    I can do five more miles.

    This afternoon's commute: one lone women's running shoe and what appeared to be the contents of a large bag of jumbo cotton balls. Seriously, cotton balls all in the grass on the side of the road.

    yesterday, just as we passed one of my favorite stores in Seattle, Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe, I noticed a tiny doll in the street. I told Raleighdon about it, and game as he always is; he went back to get it.
    While he was circling, I saw a large american car with two happily gabbing women run RIGHT OVER this poor little doll.
    Donald followed behind, snatched it and said "It's in great shape!" I found that hard to believe after watching a 1 ton car run over it.

    When we got home, he finally handed it over to me, it was a lonely little scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. It's hat is what suffered the most, but, hey scarecrows are not known for their great garb, not usually. The second photo shows him searching for his friends.

    DH and I found a tablet of blank police tickets by the side of the road.
    On another trip we found a bunch of empty boxes of Levitra (ED supplements).

    Last month I found a honking big Dewalt cordless drill. If anybody has a charger, I could use it.

    I wasn't on a bike at the time (I was walking) when I came across bags and bags of Chinese finger puzzles.... I still have a few of them kicking around the house.

    I'm new, so they are all new to me. Expect lots of bumps!

    Sand? I hope it wasn't too awful.
