Test Your Funny Bone #17 - Car Trouble

Only picture of it I could find.
I have only bought a brand new car one time in my life. When I lived in San Juan, I bought a 2001 Suzuki Vitara. We drove that thing all over the island.

Once, while driving through Salinas looking for good seafood, I was following a local's instructions. I turned at an intersection and locked up my brakes because the road only went about 25 feet and then dropped off into the ocean. I didn't realize we were that close to water.

On another occasion, during a weekend excursion, we drove to the other side of the island to see the lighthouse at Cabo Rojo. We had to drive on this narrow strip of rocked road with the salt water immediately on each side to reach the area. It was beautiful, but being Midwestern landlubbers, we hadn't really figured out yet how tides work and why it is so important to pay attention to them. We started back too late and the road was underwater. Apparently, the lighthouse sits on an island in the evenings. I discovered it was only abut 6 inches deep at that point and it was only a quarter mile to get to the other side. I walked in front of the vehicle to be assured of where the road was while my wife drove behind me. We weren't going to get stuck on that island for the night.

Those close calls bring us to this weeks picture for you to caption. I do not know the story behind this picture, but I leave it up to you to decide. Please provide a caption in the comment section.



I will post the captions I received on Friday.

Thank you, have fun, and make us laugh.
