Not your urban landscaping

My camera is on vacation (here, here, & here), but this photo from a Breaking News story on the local newspaper website shows what a little bit of rain and frost can do when properly applied. This is a few miles down the main road from Q-topia to the valley of fruits and nuts.

Architectural gingerbread I see walking from home to the Post Office and back. It is kind of sad in a way that current building styles lack gratuitous touches of non-functional craftsmanship.

Two 008 warnings

Oops, two warnings that I forgot to post last Fall, sorry.
  • Suggest you call for an appointment, drop your keys and credit card in the slot, and run away.

    Thanks for the warning, but if I enter, will I need some of my parts serviced?

  • ... and a vehicle donation location ... no receipt provided.

    Go ahead, park here without a sticker.
    We tow your vehicle into a black hole.
    Oh yes, you pay your friendly hooker too.
