Street People

october-18th-003

Some people are very close to living on the street.

 

note: Yes! it has a very nice “frontyard” …. or 29 inches.

double note: close to shopping, schools, and the main road through the city.

triple note: “Mom, there’s a car in the living room again!”

quadruple note: I could take photos of these houses all day. The noise must be a killer; especially the ones by the traffic lights. And the image of one bad driver mowing me over while I watched tv would never be too far from my thoughts.

Saturday at Stoplights

I drove to a shopping center 35 km away today (about 20 miles); it takes about an hour to get there.

On the way I took photos of things that caught my attention while I waited at stoplights.

This is what I saw and what I thought.

That’s … a stupid name for a car.

I looked on the ground to see if a “K” or an “E” had fallen off the sign. A “K” would have been a good thing (if the staff were not men): an “E” wouldn’t be so good.

I also wished there had been a stoplight outside of the “Goo” hair salon I passed earlier.

This big hedge got me singing “Stairway to Heaven” for some reason: “If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow/ Don’t be alarmed now, it’s just a spring clean for the May queen“.

Sure … I’ll just be getting back to reality now. Thanks for flying by.

Without any other music in my van to distract me, this was a bad thing for the next 40 minutes.

Flat Tony doing his “dog in a car” routine amused me for a few moments. I’ll take him around for a proper tour de force tomorrow. You can read all about his adventure in Japan in the near future. Check out his other adventures over at Tony’s Place.

Isn’t that the name of a shoe?

No Loan” loan company. At least they tell you up front.

A “bigi” air-conditioner!

This one was no “bigi”.

Is there anything more depressing than an empty cigarette machine?
Maybe an empty beer machine. It’s a close call. 
I think this machine is operated by those “No Loan” people. 
(What! No beer machines where you live? That must suck!)

Damn! I left my big pin at home!

My other car’s a “Hagen”!    or   I’m just Copen!

What’s the problem?  It’s the Kompressor again!

 

This is what I saw without really looking. Next time I’ll try harder.
