STUFF Portrait Friday

Here's another fun theme for the end of the week, sponsored by Kristine.

Three things to take pictures of: The eyesore in your neighborhood, a picture taken secretly, and the most interesting/funny sign in your area.

First. Here is the eyesore in my neighborhood. This was difficult since our Home Owners Association is pretty stringent. But look! The lawn ornaments. Ack!! What? You can't see them?? There are little white bunnies along the walkway and the flowerbox along the garage window has PLASTIC flowers in it. The flag...just hanging there on the post, no pole or bracket or anything.


Second: the secret picture. I took this one on the way to Trey's school today. These guys hang out here every single day, hoping for work. They're Mexican immigrants hoping to make a buck. They stand out here for HOURS.


Third: a funny sign. This sign was on Interstate 5 for years and has even been shown on tv since it's one of those "Things that make you go hmmm".

I am so dumb as a rock, I totally didn't get the sign at all until I read Amanda's comment three times and let the comment sink in. Now it's funny!

Aww, the immigrants :( My boyfriend is going to be teaching at a migrant camp in September and October. It's sad :(

That sign is too funny. They couldn't afford three more letters to put the word "For" in front of it?

Mama Duck said...

Geez, you'd think that the cruise ships would sustain some serious damage using the freeway like that, huh?

Hi, came over from Kristine's.
Love the freeway picture!

I clicked on your "Flamingo Lawn Ornaments" ad. Isn't it funny what kind of ads pop up there?

Plastic flowers...priceless!! LOL

I *WISH* our HOA would put the smack down on ornaments in the front yard!!

I am not kidding...there is one house that has a LIFE SIZE "sculpture" of a Rottweiler out front! I love dogs and Rotties are cool, but a fake one out front just look reee-diculous!

I should have tried to snap a picture of that for my secret photo (as it is up near their porch and I would have had to be stealth), but I'm afraid their REAL Rottie might have come out to greet me. Yes, they have a fake one in addition to a real one.

Thats just sad about the immigrent mexicans, they should come to Canada they would be treated like kings lol.
LMAO at that sign, hilarious.

Kelly said...

Those immigrants should stand in front of Home Depot like the ones in my town - they are usually gone by 9:00 a.m. ... working!

I've seen that sign before! LOL Great photos!

Easy said...
