A gift that keeps on giving ...

This is a new addition to our property. It sits on the boundary between ours and a neighbor's place. We were given this munificent gift yesterday. When I left for my afternoon appointment, it was lying face down on the edge of the road and the legend on the front was not visible. Today, it is a glorious vision of technology and forebodes the following changes. Repaving the nearest main avenue. Dust. Constricted traffic lanes. Happy little blinking arrows moving four lanes of traffic into two. Having to leave much earlier to get any where on time. Dust.

Little gifts are always appreciated. The front of the sign?


Aren't we lucky? I guess ...

It is only a matter of time before someone hits it. Funny, it has a little flag and a flashing light for nights. I didn't see the front of the sign, I saw the back only. Half a decade there is peace on the roads. The other half there is construction. The city is relentless to inconvenience you.

Wow, we get the dust without even having the DOT Diamond sign on the easement. Of course, we live on a dirt road and what with swiftly passing cars or a hard wind - our road will lift into the air and float there a while, before settling back down in the general vicinity where it used to be. Be brave, your dust baths will pass and you won't recall the hardship after a while. And, if you get to missing the airborne dirt, you always can come see us! Our airconditioning filters are about the same color as the road out front.

Wait a minute. Isn't this my parking space? There is a small sign that reads "Anne's Parking Space" on the fence. They just refused to read the small sign because they needed a place to put their larger sign.

I have to admit that they didn't ask anyone's permission to decorate.
