End of the Rainbow

3,276 Views
Message 11 of 14

About 20 years ago I was an "Owner Operator" of my own Tractor-trailer rig.  I always had my Bible laying on the dashboard. As I drove west on Highway 80, there were nurmous storms south of me.  I saw double and triple rainbows.  When I turned south I saw a rainbow in the distance.  It looked as if I would drive very near the end of it.  As it turned out, the rainbow end was in the road in front of me.  As I drove through it, I could see it come right through my windshield and shine on my Bible.  How good is that?

Currently, my son and live in Playas de Tijuana, Mexico, a suburb that is nothing like the city. I go to doctors and do major food shopping over the border. One day I had to go up and get a stress test, where radioactive dye was injected, after which a letter is supposed to be supplied for TSA at airports, etc. However, it wasn't, and I didn't know enough to ask for one. The next day, my son and I were in line at the border, and an agent came over with a hand-held meter in his hand, telling us to go for secondary inspection. We had registered a 5. My son asked what's a 5. Radioactivity.  We had to be escorted to another area by guys carrying guns, and a Geiger counter was run over us, while I showed the bruise in my arm, trying to convince them we weren't carrying the makings of a bomb into the country. I was the only one showing the reading. As my son said, after they let us go, "You just can't make this stuff up."

Did you hear about the couple 52 and 51 who tried to recreate the Dirty Dancy move and both ended up unconscious?  Do you have crazy stories to share with others here?
