Driving our motorhome west on I-80 today, I was passed by a semi... there was a monkey at the passenger window. Yes, a real live monkey. No, I didn't get a photo - they went by pretty quick and I wasn't expecting to need to photograph a passing truck. All I could think: what must the cab of that truck smell like?

I'm starting out on my morning walk at around 7am when I approached a busy intersection.

Just as I'm about to turn the corner a guy in his mid 30's comes from the opposite direction and as he's about to cross the road he stops and seems to wait for me to get closer.

As I do he turns around to face the same direction as me then pulls open a newspaper for my benefit and points at something on the page while saying "Dis".

I'll assume he meant "This" but whatever "Dis" was I wasn't interested in because what is a guy trying to show me in a Newspaper this early ?

I very much doubt he was asking for directions.

Something did not smell right.

Santa crossing the street in downtown Minneapolis trailed by 3 young women.

Maybe Christmas in July will be a thing this year.🤔

Was it Santa or was it Billy Bob Thornton dressed as Santa (a.k.a. Bad Santa)? That could explain the 3 young women following.

When we were expecting another child some years ago in preparation for the event we were discussing names.

In case it was a boy I about had my wife sold on William Robert until someone said "billy bob"...

I was on the highway on my drive home from work, when over in the northbound lanes I saw a guy running around only in his underwear....being chased by 2 police officers. It's been pretty hot down south lately, must be the heat & sun pushed that guy over the edge. I watched in my rear view mirror as long as I could, and the guy was a lot faster than the cops were....very funny but also disturbing....

Sounds like artificial stimulation at play here, possibly mass quantities.
