Thoughts during a drive to Des Moines

Sometimes we just need a laugh.

The wife and I were driving to Des Moines from Marshalltown and along the highway were around seven or eight dead raccoons. The thought crossed my mind, “Why don’t we put up raccoon crossing signs like we do for the deer?”

Then I thought about the show off chickens and heard the reason chickens cross the road is to show the raccoons that it could be done.

But I suppose since people cross the street wherever they want instead of walking to the corner crossing, how could we expect the animals to cross between the signs? After all, we let the fish use our water ways and they don’t even have the courtesy to bite on our hooks.
