sign of the times

With its pastel palette of spring flowers, blossoming trees, blue skies, tender new leaves on the trees, Monday was a beautiful spring day - so I decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood on my lunch hour.

I left through the library's back door, listening to my iPod and enjoying the sunshine. I passed my former elementary school, wishing I could use the swings but it seemed my lunch coincided with recess. (Oh well, maybe later.) I still had about a half hour, so I figured I'd investigate some of the side streets.


Bah. Rain on my parade, why don'tcha?

I have a picture of one of those signs saved on my desktop with the name "Arbeit macht frei.jpg"

About sums it up.

What, you mean you're not feeling the Hope N' Change?

I understand why you'd photoshop-out your town . . . but now it reads City of Sanitary Sewer. Which I think goes AWESOMELY on one of those signs. :)

wv: ablur. How apropos!

Hopefully their sewer liners are more durable than their signs...

Isn't amazing that the money is released so that the projects will finish up just before the election.

They shouldn't put that sign in front of homes. Breaks Rule No. Four.

There's one kitty corner from work, and I have the overpowering urge to run the damned thing over every time I turn down that road.

Doubt the 40 year old dump truck would care...

And I'll bet they didn't hire a single new person...

I wish someone would make a bumper sticker to slap on these signs,"Funded by YOU, YOUR CHILDREN, AND YOUR GRANDCHILDREN."

"Sanitary sewer" is right up there with "giant shrimp".
