Overnight Stop at a Truck Stop

An interesting sign which the second to last line I thought amusing.

Bugs vs. truck radiator grill.
Truck wins.  Bugs don't stand a chance.

And Ms. Beans in one of her favorite sleeping positions.
I've never had a cat that sleeps on their back like she does.

And speaking of the great huntress, this is one of the lizards she caught awhile back.  When she catches one she'll walk around carrying it in her mouth by the head.  Imagine having a lizard head in your mouth.  Imagine what the lizard is seeing inside her mouth.  Anyway, she'll eventually drop it and if the critter is fast enough it might elude her for a moment.  Then I'll try to distract her (fat chance at that!) but at least do my best to let the lizard get away.  This one did have a puncture wound but it wasn't mortal as when I went back a few minutes after taking this picture he overcame his state of shock and had skee-daddled.

Glad to see that the unnecessary apostrophe is alive and well in the US, even if bugs and lizards are having a harder time of it.

We have had a cat that slept that way like a corkscrew

The inability of a populace to master the use of the apostrophe portends doom.

I noticed the apostrophe too! Beans holds the lizards by the head 'cos if she holds their tails, the tails break off..... she probably knows that. Clever kitty.

John, are you aware of the fires in Santa Rosa? Just heard Annadel is burning. Hope everything's okay back home! Even San Francisco is full of smoke.

I agree!

That is a bizarre sign! Not even sure what to make of it. Beans looks like a 100% content cat! Probably dreaming about catching lizards.
