Friday Wisdom – Travel

The weather here in the Northern Sierra has been cold and snowy. Our main roads from Reno to California have been blocked off and it’s expected to remain that way through Christmas so family travel plans have been canceled. Naturally that brings to mind a few bits of travel wisdom:

The only thing worse than raining cats and dogs is hailing taxis.

The reason aliens don’t visit our planet is due to its terrible ratings – only one star.

Someday we’ll all look back on this and plow into a parked car.

I sued the airline for misplacing my luggage. Sadly, I lost my case.

I was reading that sharks do take vacations. Apparently they like to go to Finland.

Last week I flew on a small airliner and the food wasn’t great – it was a little plane.

Working for many years, the Wrong Brothers failed to make a plane fly.

The airlines have announced a new fitness program: Running to your gate.

I was working on a joke about time travel, but turns out you folks didn’t like it.

  2. Ha! Good ones. I’m sorry your travel plans were cancelled, but better that than getting stuck somewhere in a snowy wasteland. I hope you’ll get to see your family soon.

  6. That is a shame about your travel plans. We were only heading half an hour away and things got screwed up so it is me and my sweetie today and tomorrow. But that is fine. Have a wonderful holiday. Thanks for all the smiles. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
