    Never ask anyone for directions. 1. Very few know how to give them, and 2. They generally are wrong. (When asked for directions, I just draw a map. It’s not reasonable to expect a visitor to remember a hundred landmarks.)
    .
    Better to get a paper map before going on a trip.

    That’s not a man. It’s Little Orphan Annie.

    No danger of being hit, the train has already been through, you can see its tracks.

    Walking on the tracks is dangerous any way you look at it. This is getting really adventurous, with the rain and stranger. They are 100 miles from home so it couldn’t be Walt, Joel, or Rufus.

    Don’t pick up hitchhikers if there’s a correctional facility in the area.

    I don’t see how anything could possibly go wrong now.

    But she isn’t an orphan any more. Hasn’t been since Oliver Warbucks adopted her decades ago.


    Nabuquduriuzhur one only has to give major landmarks like roads and stores to give reliable directions. But I tell people when I’m not sure.

    Smart phones have great GPS and maps. When you find you are really lost, there is no cell coverage. Be sure to preload maps before the trip. It is a lower level menu on Android.

    The only thing macho Slim knows about is the Macho Burrito at Del Taco.

    I live on a dead end street and if I was out front

    people were always stopping to ask directions.

    If someone stops to ask for directions I say “Do you have $5 ?”

    I made $15 dollars one week..And people..please beware of

    Yahoo and Mapquest..Those map sites can lead ya astray

    (Ya can’t get’ thar from here..eh?)

    True story. Back when I was doing remodeling work we stop at a gas station to ask for directions. No one in the store ever heard of the street we were looking for. I had it write down and showed it to them all and one man even went as far as to say" I have live hered 30 years and have never heard of that road" As we as sitting in the truck trying to find out just where we were I look up and across the street is the road sign for the road we were looking for. I went back I the store and told them. They all acted like it was news to them like it just appeared out of thing air.

    That’s probably why, in later years, they shortened the title simply to “Annie”.
