Did the title of this blog post intrigue you? If yes, you're in for a treat.
If you live in the Bellingham area, you know about the Guide... and you know all about the kinds of strange things you can find when driving along it.
Today we went for an afternoon drive in the countryside for some creative inspiration. Jk, we were driving back to town from Lynden and took the quickest way possible because it's Friday afternoon and we are all ready to shed our workday clothes and bundle up in p jams on the couch. We're a rowdy bunch.
A drive along the guide is never boring. Sometimes it's an egregious right-wing billboard, other times it's the tractor that holds you up at every roundabout. This time it was a little more freaky. Stacy had apparently wanted to check out this "museum" on the side of the road for awhile now. She didn't really know what it was a museum of, but she had been talking about it all day so we had to investigate. It most definitely was not a museum...
We sat there idling on the side of the road just taking it all in. Behind a sketchy looking fence (you could probably contract tetanus from just touching it), there was a plethora of mangy animals wandering the yard. There was an emu. So that's a thing I can check off my bucket list, seeing one of those. Maybe this was more of a petting zoo situation than a museum?
The crown jewel of the whole place was a tiny, white poodle. The poor thing started moving towards the fence in our direction when it suddenly popped up on its FRONT TWO LEGS. WHAT THE ACTUAL HECK. My theory is, it is a defense tactic the tiny dog had developed to get intruders right back onto the road. It definitely had this effect on us.
Kind of like these four little creatures. Yes, I know that last one is a goat but honestly this one looks the most similar to out little friend.
Just another day in the life of a crow intern...
