Two posts in one week? With any luck, Momma will soon be back to helping me read blogs.
One can only hope.
Plus I need her to get on the stick and move my blog list out of Google Reader before it vanishes (paws down to Google on that one).
Driving around town often feels to yours truly like a carnival ride and I confess to sometimes getting a bit woozy from all the bumps and bounces.
That, my friends, is due to the numerous potholes which are opened up every winter by the aggressive plowing and chemical application, all in the name of keeping the roads safe for motorists.
Check out this (rather conservative and poorly patched) crater at the end of our street.
Just yesterday, Momma had the Pea-Mobile in the car hospital for yet another repair on the suspension. She claims it is due to potholes. Personally, since the repairs are always in the rear area, I am of the belief that the vehicle suffered structural damage from all those years with a 200 pound load in the dog compartment.
Even the sidewalks aren't safe now that our town has purchased a new monster sidewalk plow.
|Maybe we should go a different route. This looks just right for making momma fall on her face.|
This one is particularly vexing. No ordinary pothole, rather, the plows popped the top right off the protective covering of a hole leading to places unknown (where no doubt there are vicious creatures waiting to bitey the faces of doggies who linger too long).
|I think I smell Australia.|
But I doubt you tuned in to see how our local DPW will be keeping busy over the summer.
Quite a stir from my previous post.
Momma took this shockingly blurry photo of the helpful sign on blue man #4. Since I doubt you can read it, let me fill you in.
It seems our library is running a "spot the whale" program to encourage reading (something of which I wholeheartedly approve). To which end they have placed the blue men with whales about town, along with fact sheets regarding whales.
This didn't exactly get me fired up to run out and grab a copy of Moby Dick, but I applaud their efforts.
