Oddservations: On the road

I drove 699 miles today, from central Pennsylvania to the western side of Illinois. Tomorrow I hit Kansas City.

While driving I saw:

  • A living room chair in the middle of the highway.
  • A matching chair a mile-and-a-half further down the road.
  • A truck with a giant crate, marked FRAGILE and THIS END UP, heading for Chicago. I looked for air-holes.
  • Lots of collapsing barns, which has me thinking about how farming has changed.
  • Several GIGANTIC crosses. I kept hoping for a gigantic Star of David, but haven't seen one yet.
  • and other things, I've already forgotten.
It's a big world. Go out and explore it.

  1. Have you ever seen the huge menorah on route 9? I love it! But I've never seen it lit
