I saw these beasts while on patrol Saturday.
Plus, this huge chicken...
Hamburgers & chicken noodle soup .
They should be wearing Cowbells.
Everybody knows their Horns don't work!
i wonder if they're aware that Ukiah is Haiku backwards?
They're more like giant horns with cows attached to them.
we're not watusi...we're not spartans
Well, even larger than a Texas Longhorn - appears quite a bit wider. Adult Male Moose wide.
I've seen Longhorns loose on the highway (I-10) near Beaumount, Southeast Texas in recent years - local police in hot pursuit. I think these Watusis could be an even bigger nuisance.
what kind of patrol were you doing?
This post got me right away, when I saw the name Ukiah. I never lived there, but my parents bought a lot there in the early 50's, just after they got married. A half-acre lot... they even made a little sign saying "Hundt's Half Acre"which I still have.
Dad was working as a forester for the Masonite company after serving in the Pacific in WWII. Mom was trying to adjust to life as a housewife in a small rural community, after working at the Liberty ship-building docks in Alameda, and then at an ad agency in SF after the war.
They had dreams of a life in Ukiah. For better or worse, it didn't work out and they moved to Oakland, where my brother and I were born.
But every time I hear the name Ukiah - and it doesn't happen often! -my ears perk up and a tiny part of me wonders what that would have been like.
I went to first grade in Ukiah, at two different schools. The next year my family moved to Boonville. Ukiah (pronounced YOO-kah in Boonville) was the place for shopping runs from there, over a very windy road that is probably not as long as we kids thought it was.
Do you speak "Boontling"?
when I worked for the City of Oakland Building Maintenance division, we had a fellow painter who had moved his family to Booneville, in anticipation of his retirement. He drove up and down on the weekends, and said it was a pretty long drive.
I know a few words. The boat that Simple J. Malarkey is rowing on my guitar is modeled after the Nonch Tidric (bad trip) that my dad built while we lived there. It came apart into three sections that nested inside each other, so he could carry it in our Microbus.
Love Ukiah... fort bragg too.. all the way up to eureka is cool. carry cash when you go... not many places want to see plastic... the doobies song about it is cool too.
Boonville to Oakland is a very long drive.
They used to grow good smoke there.
Used to? It's part of the Emerald Triangle.
120 miles, 2 1/2 hours, according to my Google search. Highway 128 to Cloverdale is still pretty rustic, I think.
I work for the evil empire of Pacific Gas and Electric. When they shut off the power to all the people, we had to patrol the lines and make sure there were no issues such as downed lines or trees or limbs on the lines before we heated them back up. Those cattle were on a ranch in Potter Valley.
In the words of John Hiatt..."Put the cow horns back on the cadillac!"
