It's been a busy, busy weekend. We rented a van and ran the streets in Chicago on Saturday, 6 of us meeting 2 more for dinner, I will write more about that day later. Sunday was Lunch with Mama, a graduation party, and dinner later, with friends. Today, I'm trying to restore a little order in the house, so I can get back to finishing up painting the sunroom. Carpet to come, and then you'll get photos, just you wait. In the meantime, here are a few snaps from Saturday's trip.
This was at a gas station between Champaign and Chicago. A godforsaken bathroom, as I remember, and I wonder what made the owners decide to install this particular machine, over one that say, sells aspirin and tampons. How many women get in there, and think, "I stink. Loan me a quarter." I wonder if you get a squirt or a cloud, but someone had penned "out of order" across the top, so maybe I'll never know.
In Chicago, Clark Street. An interesting combination of wares. I'd wager you won't find a gravy boat in your particular pattern here, but maybe you can still register.
This clearance sign appeared on an viaduct. I'm completely perplexed.
For some reason this sign amuses me every time I see it. It seems so awkward, on first viewing.
Revised P.S.: Browse through Barry's Baghdad Blog for more interesting signs. And then some.
