    I can't make this stuff up.

    I actually saw this today and took the attached photo's myself. I believe I can count 6 2X6X10's and 6 1X4X10's.

    All of this reminds me of the time I had just rented a car at LAX and was driving north on 405 in stop and go traffic. I looked next to me and there was a goat tied in the back of a pickup truck. I foolishly thought I had left the "country life" far behind.

    Once locally I was exiting the Interstate and a truck merging my direction had a Jersey cow tied and standing up in the back. No sideboards whatsoever.

    The car was definitely leaning, and that was "Mama" sitting in the back seat.

    I saw a guy yesterday driving with a patio table upside down on top of his car with a blue tarp under it and his hand out the drivers window holding on to it. It wasn't on a roof rack or tied down at all. Just one hand hanging on to it.

    I was visiting my aunt and uncle in Kentucky once when my uncle pulled in the driveway with a calf standing in the back seat of his Buick Lesabre. He got it at the farm supply store and didn't figure it was worth the trouble to come home and get his cattle trailer.

    A few years ago, I was here in SC (outside the beach and city limits) eating at a wonderful mom and pops restaurant and we were seated facing the window.. I happen to look up from my meal in time to look out see a guy in El Camino towing a cow on a small flat bed trailer, lol. No restraints or anything.

    A friend of mine left his home driving his truck and pulling a flat bed trailer. When he got to town (about 5 miles) someone flagged him down and pointed out the cat sitting on his trailer fender.

    This is the same guy that stood a 20 foot extension ladder in the back of his pickup truck so he could get high enough into a tree to rescue the same cat.

    The kicker is that he claims he doesn't like cats.

    A couple of years ago around Christmas. I saw a '76 Ford F250 4wd complete with whiskey dents and rust parked at Lowes. The truck had Christmas lights duct taped to it. In the bed of the truck were empty beer cans, some fire wood, and Honda generator that was secured to the truck with a logging chain and padlock. Kinda made me jealous.

    Well I will admit to one my father did. Back around 1971 or 1972 my little sister was about six years old. Dad bought her a pony for her birthday and not having a truck or trailer he loaded the pony in the back seat of the 69 Pontiac station wagon and brought it home.

    Once a few years ago I was driving a semi on one of the Interstate highways in the Dallas area. I saw a wrought iron patio table sitting upside down in the middle of my lane. I was doing about 65MPH and could not possibly stop in time to avoid it. I was in the second lane and had cars to my right and another semi to my left. Fortunately the other semi driver saw the table when I did and moved over onto the left shoulder so I could swerve to miss the table. I really do not like people that think they can hold something to the roof of their cars!
