Signs...  Signs

I really have to say that I am a tiny bit annoyed that skaters and cyclist are deemed to be worse than alcohol.. and come before it on the "No No"  list at a local family walking trail .. personally I don't mind the bikes and boards as long as they mind their manners..

There used to be a sign about dogs but by the time I got up there with my guys the sign had been removed and dog owners were strutting around and around with no pooper scooper in sight..

Where is Fall..?... I'm Ready For It..!

" Before man can be free, and equal, and truly wise, he must cast aside the chains of habit and superstition; he must strip sensuality of its pomp, and selfishness of its excuses, and contemplate actions and objects as they really are."  ~  Percy Bysshe Shelley
