Ha! I would probably be a dog walker like Wednesday. That was funny!

Wednesday follows the rules (posted on signs). And threatens or kills those who don't. Be like Wednesday. (Joking!)

I can't even get hummingbirds to hold still for a picture. Imagine getting them to sit down for a massage.

I have used a maple leaf to pick up poop and stick it to the windshield of the offender. I was on Oak Bay Avenue, and witnessed a woman emptying both of her ashtrays onto the sidewalk. I carefully scooped it all onto a sheet of stiff paper, and poured it into the offending vehicle. Some witnesses applauded. The cops were not summoned.

Speaking of dogs, here's hoping my cousin's sign is effective!

Can't post a photo here but the sign at my driveway "No Trespassing! But what the heck, Come on in, the hogs are hungry and the dogs need a new chew toy"

Half way up the drive "The retired scout sniper now knows how many nose hairs you have"

I have two I'm currently redoing:

Guard Dog On Duty. She loves "Leg Steaks" (yours)

"Owner shoots like this" (those half dollar paper targets at some shooting ranges for 50 yards) and five holes within the circle. Dated. No more than a month old at any given time) "If you can read this I have a bead on you."

Sounds like this sign is up Bryant and Deb's alley - maybe some of you have seen one like it before.

Good sign Jocelyn, I love it.

I used to work as a government contractor, this is a photo of one of the buildings I used to work in.  The government has a requirement that all buildings be handicap accessible, with a wheelchair ramp if needed.  However, there doesn't appear to be any requirement that the wheelchair ramp itself be wheelchair accessible.

Oh man, that handicap ramp going to stairs is....interesting. Sheesh! Is that a dump truck that caters weddings?!!

It seems a lot of people are frustrated with dog poop these days. Here's more inspiration for picking up that poo!

It's a garbage truck!  I saw that when I was out in Maryland a few years back.

You can't see it in the picture, but the only way to access the path leading to the ramp (other than down the stairs) is to cross some xeriscaping done with rocks that are fist size or larger.  There is literally no way for someone in a wheelchair to get to that ramp.  
The really funny thing is that the OTHER end of the building has a sidewalk that wheelchairs could use, but that side only has stairs to access the building.

This a message board usually contains political trite. Mostly complaints of non producers, that they aren't getting what they want. Someone added a little something from the Rolling Stones at the bottom.

I doubt that the guy in the second photo has a licensing agreement. This was taken at the Sandcastle Festival in Parksville British Columbia.
