My Rant Today: Occasional op ed piece by Miss Victoria Pike


Lift-out jewel (but there are others; so click on headline to see them all) 'People pass tractors on the highway when they can't see what is coming in the other lane, but they are in such a hurry they are willing to risk their lives plus mine and others so they can get where they are going a minute faster.' - VICTORIA PIKE

Personal Commentary

Some just choose not to read the signs and then cry when they get in somewhere they cannot get out of easily.


My road has double red gates and a big yellow sign that says "no outlet." I still get people who drive in thinking it is the entrance to the Cumberland Parkway!

I have to ask when I catch them what Parkway have you ever gotten on that had double gates installed on it. That is why my gates stay closed most of the time.

It is also a safety net in case the girls decide to come down and make use of the shade trees in the front.

I have come to the conclusion that you can't do much to prevent people from doing certain things.

People pass tractors on the highway when they can't see what is coming in the other lane, but they are in such a hurry they are willing to risk their lives plus mine and others so they can get where they are going a minute faster.

Well, this is the end of my rant today.

Now for National Pet Day.

What can I get the girls to do cute today for a photo op? --Victoria Pike
