Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Laugh laugh

Subject: Only in Texas

Only a Texan could think of this - from the County where drunk driving isconsidered a sport, comes this true story.
Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Bandera, Texas,
staked out, the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he
could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few
minutes, with the officer quietly observing.After what seemed an eternity
and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his
car which he fell into.

He sat therefor a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine,
dry summer night), flicked the blinkers on, then off a couple of times,
honked the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle
forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few
more minutes as some more of the other patron vehicles left.

At last, the parking lot empty, he pulled out of the parking lot and started
to drive slowly down the road.The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up
the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over
and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer
indicated no evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at all!

Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the
police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken."

"I doubt it," said the truly proud Texan. "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."
