There are a lot of wacky things out there in the wide wide world...of Utah County. Almost weekly when I'm running errands, I see something that strikes my funny bone. Luckily for both of my blog's readers, I've started taking pictures of the humor in life. (I use the word "started" loosely. I've been doing so for about a year, but I'm just now posting about it. Yeah yeah, I know I've been neglecting writing on this blog...but everything is still there in my brain--maybe. I guess I can't remember what I've already forgotten!)
Anyway, here are a few snapshots from when I've been out and about and thought, "I should share that funny/cool/weird thing on my blog!" Let's start with a few photos in the wide world outside Utah County:
#1 No Neck
#2 Travelers Beware
A Child's Hope Foundation, some of the volunteers are tentative about crossing the border. Between the foreign language and the hawkers swarming the line of crawling vehicles waiting to enter the U.S., I understand being tentative. My experience has been that getting into Mexico is pretty straightforward; but getting out is more...well, curvy. I do appreciate the road sign in this picture, though. At least Tijuana warns you that you're about to go on a dizzy ride, whereas Utah's "spaghetti bowl" on I-15 usually catches travelers unaware.

#6 January 10, 2013: 30-ft. Snowman in Orem Creates Traffic Mess for Neighbors
made the news. In fact, that's how I knew to go looking for it. I had all the kids in the van with me and thought it would be shocking to them to suddenly drive past a snowman towering over the surrounding houses. As I started our little detour, they were on to me. (Since when do children pay attention to the road?!) "Where are we going?" "This isn't how we get to the store." I answered that I wanted to show them something. "What is it? Are you going to show us a big snowman or something?" #2 asked. (That girl may have a future as a psychic reader.) Even though they guessed it before I opened the surprise to guesses, they were still pretty impressed at the size of this frozen Cougar fan!
