Fire and rain.
Sunny days that I thought would never end.
Lonely times when I could not find a friend.

A toilet sitting on the median in Baltimore, no, I didn't take it like someone's disturbed lab partner.

Pretty cool. I have several 10 MB drives from PC XTs.  Nice paperweights.  Nothings going anywhere.

Hope. It took the form of a sign "Welcome to Camden NJ"

"...you seen...", "I seen", "they seen".
Very commonly spoken that way in Minnesota and Wisconsin, etc.  Still annoys the sheets outa' me and I now live in  Arkansas where it is state law to use an apostrophe to make a word plural.

Last fall I found a bunch of broken glass and a rifle along with some skid marks, then I turned the corner and found a dead deer and a rolled pickup with two drunk hunters trying to crawl out from under it.

Apparently they bagged a deer on their first day out and drank all of the beer they had stocked with field dressing the animal/extracting it from the woods. I stopped to help them and one guy asked me to get his rifle off of the road. It was a semi auto with a round in the chamber. At least the safety was on.

The injustice of it all is that I didn't get a deer that year.

There was a M-88 on a road trailer parked on the side of the road for a few weeks near my dad's place in SC.  Guess they figured nobody would bother it.

About 10 years ago, I found a 45-rpm single (remember those?) of the Rolling Stones' 19th Nervous Breakdown by the side of the road. Always wondered what the story was behind how it got there.

There used to be a carnival-prize quality stuffed Spiderman wearing a stained "wife-beater" t shirt sitting tied to a tree that I drove by almost daily.  The kids would get excited when we were coming up to him.  It was a sad day when the city cleanup crew removed him.  I always wanted to add another stuffed character from the Marvel universe and see if anyone else would play along until we had a whole Avengers team assembled.

I used to also see a couch on a ridge overlooking a major road here, the city removed it and it was replaced by a different couch and a recliner.

Harry Freakstorm: A semi truck slid off the southbound side of the interstate and split open in the snow. There must have been hundreds of cans of Budweiser sitting in the snow after the pulled the semi and the trailer away. I don't really think anyone handling the cleanup thought the beer would stay around. I saw beer on the way up to Champaign on the northbound side of I-57. About two hours later, when I was heading south, the place had been picked clean. Lots of tire marks and footprints in the snow. It was salvagers because I know the cleanup people like to travel in a single file to hide their numbers.

I used to ride a bicycle 5 miles each way to work...the dead animal list included:  bat, rat, cat, dog, frog, deer, raccoon, opossum, chipmunk, squirrel, mouse, turtle, and a trophy size striped bass.

Score tiles from a baseball field. There were seven of them, all the number 7.

I took them to our basement hangout and strung them on a rope. The seven sevens. Hope it brought my buddy Gary some good luck.

Things Ive seen, manaquin, a canoe, a boat with a trailer and no tires, a turned over front end loaderand a burned out car. The car was on a bridge on the Potomac and DC and VA were in an argument about whose job it was to clean it up.

We used to have an employee that was always picking up junk from the side of the road. One day he found a pair of coveralls that somebody had lost the entire contents of their colon in. It also had one of the patches with a guys name on it. That guy came into our parts store a few days later and our employee asked him if he wanted his coveralls back, he'd found them on the side of the road all poo'ed up. The guy just turned around and left..

rkiller1: A wallet full of cash and credit cards.  Quietly and anonymously left it and entire contents on their porch a few blocks away.
/I had to because karma is a biatch.
//Happened twice in the last twenty years.


Huh. When I was living in Sunnyvale, CA, someone left a wallet full of cash and credit cards on my porch that didn't belong to anyone living there or my various friends who were there when we noticed it. We gave the wallet to the guy's bank and asked them to find him and give it back. He was most appreciative and wrote us a little note saying thanks. Hid driver's license had my address, but he'd moved.

A 1950's or older vibrating cushioned stool.  The lady would simply sit on it, since their was no other 'attachments'.  I didn't realize what it was till I got it home to tear apart for scrap.

A dead hooker.

No, seriously, a dead hooker. In a ditch by the side of the road in Tucuman, Argentina.

A piano on an I-95 entrance ramp. It looked like it fell off a truck and was pretty banged up.  They probably just said "Fark it" and left it there.

One halloween with my first/wierdest college girl friend and her other boyfriend driving to a halloween party we saw burning matress by the side of the road and considered it a good sign for the evening's festivities, it was.

Sybarite: It's not at all uncommon, but I'm always puzzled by where that one shoe comes from, especially when it still appears to be in pretty good shape.


It seems like it's almost always a sneaker or work boot. On yesterday's bike ride I saw a single woman's high heel shoe. It appeared to be in good shape.

On another ride several months ago, I came over a hill and there was a Chevy Suburban on it's side off the side of the road. There was a Mexican guy standing in the road talking on his phone. When I rode past the same spot about an hour later there were cops and a tow truck. As I rode past one of the cops talking to the Mexican dude I heard the cop say something like "No, this ID is not valid."

I guess the Suburban doesn't really count as abandoned.

I found a really good porno mag in the middle of the road one morning. I know it came from a pickup truck that had just passed me going in the other direction. For 1982, it was pretty explicit but still classy. I almost wrecked the car while driving and looking at it. I finally put it in the back with the spare tire or I would have definitely wrecked the car.

The numerous near misses on the highway gave me the idea of a cursed porno mag that killed everyone who picked it up. I had a couple of chapters done that I tried to shop around. No takers although one day, a guy that looked like Stephen King showed on my doorstep and beat me with his giant Wang (again 1982).

Why would he even touch it?  Did he loose his sense of smell and he got too close?  That's a 'burn it with fire' find.

Dead couger, the wife claimed it was a couger, I thought dog. After a sweep around that involved driving 10 miles to the next exit and twenty miles back to the previous exit... yep dead cougar cat.

He said he recognized who's they were because the guy had been in the store that day with those coveralls on. And I did say he USED to be an employee, there are reasons why he's not here any more...

a burning car with flames flying over 20 feet in the air.  and not a soul to be found anywhere (no one was in the car, I checked because I was trying to be the good person... or, they were in the car, and, well... that would be very sad.  but it really looked like no one was in the car, and I didn't hang around once fire people showed up, or do any research after the fact, because I didn't want to know)

chickstan: I saw a peacock run across the road out in the middle of NOWHERE in Georgia. Does that count?"


Had the same thing happen a couple years back in the Nevada desert.  He just strutted out in front of the car like he owned the place, although he looked pretty bedraggled.  Didn't think anybody would believe us, so I rolled video of it and posted it on YouTube.
