I had to post these. Today I went due west from downtown Dallas toward Irving on Industrial, which turns into Irving Boulevard. Trinity Industries has this sputnik-era sign on outward sloping legs, which you can't get a sens of because of the tree.
Anyway, I stopped in the parking lot to get this picture, and then I noticed the rather stern lollipop parking sign giving a warning about poor parking in much the same way I would. Except I'd have a picture of a nun with a ruler in her hand. But the threat to tow would be unchanged. Another cool thing about this sign is the font looks 1920s era to me, though it really could have been lettered anytime up through the 60s. It's super cool. I wish I had this sign for my garden, because that's the kind of hairpin I am.
omg - anyone besides me simply foaming at the mouth to see who gets booted off Project Runway next week for cheating? It's GOT to be Angela. Can't believe she dodged that bullet again. Sheesh.
Oh, and finally, yesterday I told husband to "get the lead out" meaning to haul ass - he said he's never heard that expression, ever. He was born in Dallas. Any of you ever hear that? I've heard it aplenty since I was a young'un. Seems pretty common to me, but maybe I'm strange...
