The talking cowboy (PG)
A Cowboy said to a Rancher, 'Is that your dog?'
The Rancher replied, 'Yup.'
'Mind if I talk to him?'
'Durn fool, don't you know dogs don't talk?'
The Cowboy replied, 'So what's the harm? May I?'
'Go right ahead.' The Cowboy said to the dog, 'Howdy!'
The dog replied, 'Hello.' The Rancher's eyes pop wide.
The Cowboy continued, 'Is this your master?'
'Yep, he sure is.'
'Does he treat you alright?'
'Sure does. Every day he takes me for a walk, he feeds me all kinds of great food, and once a week he takes me to the lake to play.' Rancher was dumbfounded.
The Cowboy said to the Rancher, 'Is that your horse over there?'
'Do you mind if I talk to him?'
The Rancher replied, 'I know the dog spoke to you, but I know for a fact that horses can't talk.'
'Well, then what would it hurt?'
'Go right ahead.'
The Cowboy said to the horse, 'Hello.'
The Horse replied, 'Hello.' The Rancher stood there with his jaw wide open.
The Cowboy asked, 'Is that your owner?'
'Yup, sure is.'
'He treat you okay?'
'Sure, he rides me every day, brushes me down at the end of the day, and he keeps me in the barn away from the elements.'
'Sounds good.' The Cowboy then asked the Rancher, 'Are those your sheep over there?'
The Rancher is horrified and stammers, 'Them sheep out there, they're nothing but a bunch of liars!'

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.
