  1. re: seatbelts - i have never gotten the why of the front seat passenger having their feet up on the dashboard.


    1. Worse than ending up on your butt on the floor would be having the airbag inflate while her feet on are on the dashboard. At best, she is going to get a face full of her own legs. At worse, broken bones or dislocations.

  2. re: cattails - having a good breeze when you do that just makes it so much better!


  3. Thanks for all the giggles! I love your dumps ~

  4. However, (harumph harumph) the doo doo fireworks are beneath you, Minnesotastan

  5. Great dump, as always. The busker really is something!

  6. I’m pretty sure the dogs are swimming from being surrounded by water, not running because of the wind in their face. If you hold a dog above water many of them will instinctively start paddling.
