Andy | Wednesday, December 30, 2009 | Best Blogger Tips

King Of The Road

Andy | Tuesday, December 29, 2009 | Best Blogger Tips

This guy and gal were supplying entertainment to the motorist. I was out for my exercise when I notice, up ahead traffic was coming to a complete stop. It took me about 4 minutes to walk up to the disturbance of public order. These two were walking back and forth on the road. Normally they will fly off or pickup speed crossing the road. Today they were playing King Of The Road. They got to one side then turned around and went back. It was very comical watching them.
