  1. I like the top picture here: let me see, can I find a better story to go with that picture? “I am driving down a lonely country road by myself one hot spring afternoon sipping on an ice cold beer with a cooler full of ’em in the back seat. The birds are tweeting, the crickets are cricketing and the cows mooing in the fields passing by when I come around a corner in the road and lo and behold to my utter surprise, I espy this thin gorgeous female. She is all by her lonesome self stuck on the side of the road with terrible car problems. She has the most quizzical, puzzled and lost look on her face, like ‘what ever am I going to do?’  as I pass by so I pull over to offer my sincere help, honest. When on my approach she says to me with deep trusting and beautiful brown cow eyes, “I will do anything you ask if only you can please help me…..” “Would you like a beer?” I ask. “Sure, why not.” she replies.    or, how to turn a dull drab rainy winter day into an exalting experience, stay tuned! 

    • ….As you pass by, and stop to “Selflessly help this poor female”…(not that her being drop dead gorgeous has anything to do with it) you offer her a beer, she agrees, you lean into your car to fetch a cold one, and turning about you see 2 armed men (hiding in her back seat- tinted windows and all)
      They rob you of your cash, your clothes and your car…
      An embarrassed yet naked man stands on the side of the road, holding a tumble weed over his nads, and a car pulls over… A haggard obese sweaty stinky nasty hag steps out…. raises her eyebrows at you… you sigh, gag on some vomit and reply:
      “Yes, ok ok! I’ll do anything to get the hell out of here!”
      “It” pats you on your naked @ss as you get inside the car”
      LMAO Stay tuned for more details!!!!

    • SHIT! not at all how I envisioned this outcome!! Geeze, this needs some hard core rewrites and editing… least though you got me lined up with some stinky nasty hag, and not bubba and his buddies! This ain’t good……….

    • And so, dear friends, we have all now witnessed a lovely dream turned into a horrible nightmare.  Stay tuned, IF you dare!  😉
      Oh, as to the hag, at least she didn’t say, “Dammit, Tom, you fall for that shit EVERY time.  Come on home, now, dinner’s ready.”
