It could ONLY happen to us and I just have to share this with you! It was a FIRST for me and I can only hope it will NEVER happen again in my lifetime!

On the trip home from Labor Day Rally in Burleson, somewhere between Waco and College Station, Rusty managed to get behind a truck pulling a load of horses! It's a two lane road and, of course, there's no way to pass it safely. Doesn't this sound all too familiar!!

All of a sudden we see something coming out of the back of the truck..we first thought the driver had blown a tire, but then we noticed that it was "steaming" as it hit the hot pavement!

In those few split seconds I wondered..."what in the world is this"...but when the LIQUID SUBSTANCE hit the windshield, Rusty started laughing.....

we'd just been pee'd on by a horse traveling 70 mph down the road!!!

What kind of truck was pulling the horse trailer????

Well it COULD have been worse, at least it was "Streaming" not "Clumps" plopping on that pretty white truck of yalls.

Give a whole new meaning to leaving a "Reaction Gap" between vehicles.

That one is like you said Sandy, TOO FUNNY.

A 3rd generation Dodge/Cummins!

Oh, we had a "reaction gap" between us, but this stuff was coming out of the trailer and a'splatterin' up off the road - for a long way! Actually, we were just a'gittin' the fog that was hanging in the air.

And I bet Rusty would have been "pi**ed" off if any of that "stuff" had gotten on his truck.

You know the old saying: It is better to be pi**ed of than pi**ed on. Oops that doesn't apply in this situation does it.

It DID get all over the truck! It was so bad we had to turn the windshield wipers on!

LeeAnn -
We all have those stories to tell! Too many great times camping and some of the "uh ohhhss" that you wish didn't happen!!

Jdoc -
You are right! However, in this instance we were BOTH!!! Hey bud, how did your surgery go?

I don't know how it went. It doesn't happen until October 6th. I may be good at some things, but seeing into the future is not one of them.

Back in the 80's, we went to one of those "drive thru" zoos while we were in Canada. In one area, all the baboons would come up to the cars looking for handouts. One climbed on the hood and looked into the windshield at us. We thought it was rather funny. He then proceeded to climb up onto the roof where we couldn't see him. It was a warm day and we had the windows down just an inch or so to let in some air. All of a sudden those sitting in the back seat nearest the door got a golden shower as the baboon took a pee on the roof of the car. The windows, of course, were quickly rolled up and the baboon climbed down onto the trunk and from there hopped off the car.

Our biggest surprise, though, came after we got out of the car. The baboon had left us a gift: a turd the shape of a large Hershey's kiss smack dab in the middle of the roof. The hot sun had glued it to the there and it took a bit of effort using a stick we found nearby to free it. I took a picture of it, but since this is a PG rated site, it will remain in my photo album as a historical momento of our adventure.

I guess I misunderstood! I THOUGHT ya'll stayed over at Burleson because you were going back to Ft Worth area to have the surgery on your shoulder that week.

We stayed over so we could go to Plano to get medical clearance for my surgery.
