Whoopee ti yi yo,
git along little dogies

Once upon a time

 Not so long  ago

In a very strange

and far off land

It was a nice day.

Hank was drivin'.

I was ridin' shotgun.

Ed was sleepin' in the back.

Hank and I couldn' figure out wha' was goin' on.

The Interstate had been backed up fer many miles.

Then we saw a sign sayin', "Cattle on Roadway".

And I thought, what the $*#%#?!?
Had there been an accident

involvin' a cattle truck? 

Oh no!!!  

And if so,

does it happen

so often that

they have a






Then we came across this:


No horrible accident...

They're just drivin' cattle.

Drivin' cattle down the Interstate....


Yep.  Tha's right.  Drivin' cattle down the Interstate. 

As in, the big, busy, limited access highway.

I asked one a them cowboys 'bout it

as we drove s-l-o-w-l-y by.

As it turns out they have

an historic right of way

But I can't remember

if it was for once

or twice

a year.


What kind of

dumbass cowboy

don' wear no cowboy hat?

Tha's much better. 

He's wearin' a cowboy hat.

Missed gettin' a close-up though. 

So I don' know if he has blue eyes.  Damn!

But if you click on the picture to enlarge it

you can see that this cowboy

{{{{{{  }}}}}}

has a pretty impressive


"Mooo... Nice pornstache..."

They weren't sayin' it

But I know they were thinkin' it.

Somebody should tell this cowboy

That the cattle

are over



They're goin' awful fast.

Sure hope they can slow down in time fer tha'

treacherous curve...

< < < < <

Oh look,

there's an exit comin' up...

Sign says, "Food - Phone  Exit 108" 

Good news!

Them cattle can stop

ta get somethin' to eat

and then maybe call a friend

to come pick them up

and get them off

the damn




But wait,

There's more...

It was the same day

Just an hour or so later.

This time on a two lane road.
After we had gotten off the Interstate

and were headin' up inta the mountains.

Musta been the day

to drive cattle on the roadways.

Sure wish they'd mooove over...

The end.

Glad you enjoyed the interstate cattle drive! I will tell where I live eventually. (And where all the pictures are from.) Don't mean to be mysterious about it. I'm just not sure if I'm ready yet...

Glad it made it laugh! So you live somewhere similar?!? I would ask where, but since I'm not ready to tell where I live yet, I shouldn't go around asking other people... :)

Thinking about it, this must be what The 'Stache has been doing since BBM - probably couldn't get any other movie jobs so it's had to go back to herding cattle...

You're very welcome! Glad you thought it was funny! And don't worry, I don't think I have any more freaky animal pics... (Although I guess it depends what you think is freaky...)

Hey! Glad you liked it! You're right, it must have been "National Driving Cattle on Public Roads Day"...LOL! What else could explain it? We've seen cattle on two-lane roads before, but never on the interstate... And "lucky" is right! We hadn't actually planned on going that way that day. And we were darn lucky we had a camera within reach...

Hi Joe! Glad you enjoyed the cattle drive! We often come across livestock in the roadway, but this was the first time on the interstate(!) That's so sweet that you would ask me to stop by, but I'm afraid you would be disappointed if you met me. I'm really not very amusing in person. (Wish I was...) It's very strange, but Ed and Hank just bring it out in me.

WOW I didn't know they could tie up an interstate to move them. I am surprised there isn't any accidents in the process

We didn't know they could tie up an interstate to drive cattle either. We've come across livestock on two lanes roads before, but never the interstate. Who would have guessed?!? Luckily there wasn't any accidents, but you'd think there easily could be. And you'd think it would really stress out those cows and horses. I know I'd be stressed if someone made me walk down the interstate...

What makes this truly a classic is cattle butt at the end.

And pornstache! :)

Thank you so much for the pictorial. And Ed slept through ALL of this?

Yep! Ed slept through ALL of it. Didn't even believe Hank and me about the interstate cattle drive until we showed him the pictures. It was very lucky that I had the camera within easy reach or Ed would have thought we were just pulling his leg. (so to speak) I think the cattle butt really the last pictures I took. And the pornstache(!) I didn't even notice it at the time... :D
