Ringling road is stuck in my head

Train rolls in at ten am
Kill the lamb for the lions, find some water for the elephants
Monkey on his shoulder, is a monkey on his back
Could I bum a cigarette, I done smoked my last pack
Throw up the big tent, throw down some sawdust
We don't open till the 'morin, step right up
We got beer for the bearded lady
And the Siamese twins are into opium
The trapeze guys are all high on cocaine
That they bought from a guy that used to drive the train
We got water for the elephants
Everybody knows the greatest party on earth
Is the circus down on Ringling Road
Well, the tattoo man is making out with snake lady
Just to piss off the human cannonball that she been dating
Clown got wasted and he's throwing a shoe
At a bear on a bike with a bottle of booze
Tightrope walker is to damn high
Welcome, everybody, to a freakshow Friday night
We got beer for the bearded lady
And the Siamese twins are into opium
The trapeze guys are all high on cocaine
That they bought from a guy that used to drive the train
We got water for the elephants
Everybody on earth know that the greatest party on earth
Is the circus down on Ringling Road
We got beer for the bearded lady
And the Siamese twins are into opium
The trapeze guys are all high on cocaine
That they bought from a guy that used to drive the train
We got beer for the bearded lady
And the Siamese twins are into opium
The trapeze guys are all high on cocaine
That they bought from a guy that used to drive the train
We got water for the elephants
Everybody on earth know that the greatest show on earth
Is the circus down on Ringling Road
Down on Ringling Road
Down on Ringling Road

My wife showed me a photo of a Mal with a much longer tongue than ours this morning from one of her FB groups. Yes it had a half eaten frisbee next to it like our Malinois. That game of chasing frisbee must be breed specific. You can not say the word out loud in the house it is like Voldemort if you want some peace. Huge activity drive in these dogs, but highly attentive dogs too. We are planning on switching from english to german to discuss the activity of throwing that disc. Then probably will be google translating up other words.

I modified the image a bit just in case. Still these are awesome dogs if you have the available time to deal with them. Dog apparently had his/her fribee thrown. Slobber and teeth marks to prove it. Not my dog or image. I am sure I am next up for a round of frisbee in less than an hour now. Still that tongue to face ratio is adorable so I had to repost this image.

My wife swears he alarmed over a scorpion in the house, which would be cool if true, but I know she cannot deal with a scorpion without involving me. Her response since getting stung in Austin is to throw my body out in front. I rate her claim as dubious. My elder sister and mother got stung in Wise County. No idea why us guys never have these issues. My middle sis moved to California guess she was done with this Texas crud.

Heck I even freaked out Terminix man by pointing out a favored scorpion nest. He pulled a spray can out of his back pocket and went to work on them. I imagine it can be shocking when someone says there are scorpions here opens a door and there are several.

So I have a question for my fellow Texans. Do you often get stuck behind idiots driving 35-40 in a 55 zone only to have to accelerate to 80+ mph to pass them safely? It is seeming like more and more people only learn how to react to speed limit signs if I am passing them. Then they still have to pass me in my residential zone. It is scary. I need to get my car unchipped so I get that 25% factory power reduction removed. I am still waiting on someone to strike my made of steel vehicle when theirs is aluminum and plastic. We had that encounter once and it was not pretty for the other guy. I'll keep my manual transmission beast of a 19mpg car. DW thought she had hurt the 7 month old beast.

Sure we have crumple zones it is called your Toyota Corolla or anything non Jeeplike. I drove to Wally world yesterday and had issues. Thank you for letting me vent.

Statistically speaking, my Better-half showed me that her theory has now become a well entrenched fact.

In the fast lane 10-out-of-every-10 drivers at or more normally below the speed limit turns out to be an older white guy with cellphone velcro-ed to their hand & EAR.
This fact is now into it's 8th or 9th year continued to hold its own - way too easily. Regardless the type of vehicle he's driving. And I'm an older white guy too!

Okay... I've finally started to shutdown internally speaking..... Finally.
G'night.
