Bumming A Ride

Heading to work this morning was a white-knuckle experience.  My wipers were working overtime, yet I still could hardly see.  I happened to be traveling in the middle of several tractor-trailer rigs, which was good, because I used them to mark the lanes since I couldn't see the lane stripes with the hard rain......by the way, if you feel the need to stop under an overpass.....PLEASE PULL WAY OVER!  I couldn't believe the cars sitting inches from passing cars. 

Anyway, we seldom got above 45mph, which turned out to be another good thing since I had apparently picked up an unknown hitchhiker at home.  As I was nearing WIBW, I noticed something on the bottom of the driver side window.....it was a little frog hanging on for dear life.  I hadn't stopped since I left the house, so I can only assume it is one of the little guys that I occasionally see around my yard.

I'm glad he has strong little fingers, because I don't think he would have fared very well if he had fallen off in the middle of I-70.  I guess he had a white-knuckle experience, too.  Here is what I saw as I pulled into our parking lot.   Doug
