A sign full of reminders

Say hello to my lovely wife, she of limitless loveliness and goodness (really, she's lovelier than I deserve, but we'll leave that debate for another day.)

As you can see, she's patiently waiting for me to take the shot so we can continue on our walkabout. With a doof like me in tow, she has developed bottomless wells of patience over the years. Again, I don't deserve it. Again, we'll leave it aside.

Neither of us was sure why this particular street sign was plastered with parking stubs. Was it a Montreal thing? Did the Occupy protestors or student demonstrators have something to do with it? Were we being secretly filmed by the descendants of Allen Funt for a Candid Camera reboot? I suspect we'll never figure it out, but it was one of those neat mysteries you uncover only when you st your screens aside and find a new part of the planet to explore.

Your turn: What are you going to explore next?

Probably started the same way as this shoe tree we found in the middle of Nowhere, Nevada. Started with one person being funny/lazy/civilly disobedient and then just evolved into a tradition. Whatever way, I love those quirky little things you see here and there.

There is a "Shoe tree" along the highway in the mountains of Arizona. If we had gone that way twice ... I would have stopped to take a photo. Don't you wonder how many people really notice those type of things ... and how many never ever notice?
