Thoughts within on the road to Twin


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

Every once in a while, we all have to go to Twin Falls for services not offered here. In my case, I had to go for a health issue not covered by Medicare in the county. Yours might be for products available only in a bigger town. Whatever the reason, we are all familiar with the drive from Timmerman Hill to Shoshone and on to Twin Falls and back. Also, it's a well-known fact that it's quicker going there than it is coming back. The desert leg of the trip coming or going opens one's mind to a bombardment of thoughts. Don't you agree?

Why can't they bring Bowe home? They got Osama, didn't they?

Hey, if they want to get married, they should have the same rights and problems like we do. Be careful for what you wish for.

Age is just a number—but it's expensive.

They say Sagebrush Arena smells? It's nothing! Take a whiff of what's up ahead!

Wow, gas prices are lower outside Blaine County.

Hmmm, the dog's eyes are glazed—time for a stop.

Come on! I'm trying to lose weight and look at all these signs! Ooooh, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Let's Go!

OK, let's head back. How am I going to make that payment Monday? Worry about it tomorrow? Thanks, Scarlett.

Yow! There's a car wreck ahead. We'll have to wait a while. Hope they're OK.

Man, I'm tired.

Can you believe this guy tailing me so close? I'm going the speed limit! Go around!

OK, here's the last hill. Unveil the valley. Curtains! We live here. What a view.

Hey, I gotta' go 20 through Bellevue. I'm tellin' ya'!

Oh, so glad to be back home. Oh, I have to go next Tuesday. Maybe I'll post pone ...

Nice talking to you.
