View Full Version : "While on my way to the pool hall..."

04-09-2002, 05:34 PM
In my hometown of Arizona, the place I called "home" for 43 years (except for a short, 5-year hiatus in Vegas with my company), the only thing I have ever hit in the roadway while enroute to my favorite pool hall was:

1. A cat (already dead.)

2. Heavy traffic.

I have been in Texas 38 days and have already hit:

1. A skunk (live.)

2. An Armadillo (live.)

3. A 'possum (live.)

4. A turtle (wiggling but injured before I hit it.)

5. A Ford tailgate (inanimate.)

6. Rain coming down in sheets.

7. A fish (I know...I don't know how it got there either.)

8. The arm of a sofa.

9. A television remote (possibly related to the aforementioned sofa.)

10. A racoon (very alive...had to hit it twice.)

Once at the pool hall, I was hit by stiff competition, cheap pool, cold beer and deep-fried foods.

I love Texas!

That's hilarious.
But only ONE armadillo? That's hard to believe.
I always hit a passing train which costs me about 10 min. of practice time.

Hey Ken, just wandering if it safer to walk on the sidewalk, side of the road , or middle of the road. From the description it sounds like you are just a little erratic there behind the wheel.
Ralph S.>thinks Ken needs to take a drivers ed.refresher course......LOL

Good evening:

Personally, knowing how he drives and how radical he can be, I would prefer to be stationary. He always hits the moving targets and always misses the stationary ones.

I DID take "Ed's Driving with Refreshments Course." It's a prerequisite to obtaining both my TEXAS DRIVERS LICENSE and the ever important "UNICARD."

A fellow student driver in my class, when informed of my "roadkill" episodes, suggested it might be easier if I simply shot them. I took his advice and am currently enrolled in the local community college, taking a weekend course (8 weeks) in "Varmint Poaching and Taxidermy." Upon graduation, I receive a certificate, a lever-action Marlin .22 rifle (complete with the college logo on the stock) and a gun rack for the rear window of my truck.

Don't Mess with TEXAS.

Good afternoon Ken:

Why only a whimpy .22 ?

My dad taught me on a Winchester 30.06 !!!

Hey Ken,

Didn't take you long to learn about the Unicard, eh? I have the hard plastic never-pay-annual-dues-again lifetime version of that card myself!

SPetty~~ If/when we meet, drinks are on me!
