After reading JNL's post regarding PUFFIN crossings, I was inspired to do a bit of research.

Believe it or not, I found an example of a PUFFIN crossing in Kansas City.

Wanna' see?




























































Okay!

Road Kill

I'm glad I didn't hit that puffin when I Segwayed past the boar last week.

I just got back from a drive to Dallas this past week. Along the way my children and I played our favorite highway game -- "Count the Carcass". The kids get points for being the first to identify the carcass' species correctly. Lots of possum on a half shell (armadillos) this week.

I wish you'd posted this a couple of weeks ago, before I took a road trip with my young 'un, he'd have loved it! I bought him about $50 worth of activity books, road games, etc., but all he did was TALK. Although I must say, his made-up narrations of "Celebrity Death Matches" ("Carrot Top vs. Mr. T, who's gonna win?"), inspired by Cyburbia's death matches, were pretty amusing...
