Roadside Whimsy

We see lots and lots of cool roadside art.  
Sometimes it is sculptures, sometimes billboards and often simply unique and indescribable.  
I am really trying to have the camera out more often in hopes of capturing these elusive moments of Roadside Whimsy.

This little beauty is part of a trio observed in Gila Bend, Arizona.

As I write this, I am pulled over on the side of the Interstate in Oklahoma.  
It is 11:00 Wednesday night.  
The wind is howling and rocking the truck . . . 
 it was hailing hard a few moments ago . . .
the rain is coming in sheets.
I really have NO interest in driving.  
I think I'll just look at this picture and remember how nice and DRY it was that day in Gila Bend.  We are going to be going through there Thursday night.  

I should be driving in the dry by then.

Fandango Travelers: I've been reading your blog for sometime now. Today around 5:00 pm AZ time I came across your guys as you came off I-17 onto the 101. If you happened to see a rust color Jeep pass you on the left, that was me. Be safe and if you guys ever have time want to stop for a dinner the Phoenix are give me a shout.

Hey JT - don't have a clue who you are, but that's okay. Thanks for reading. I actually remember the jeep as I was getting onto 101 there in Phoenix. I was thrilled to make it safely thru that intense rush hour traffic you people have!

We try to limit the time we have to be in Phoenix, it is simply too intense for us. I'll keep your e-mail though. Thanks for the invite.
