The wife had a "girls night out" even tonight, and left me to fend for myself for dinner. So I was on my way to pick something up when I came around a curve in the road and saw this:



There were cars lining both sides of the street, and a line of people getting yard signs. I continued on and picked up my food, and on the way home, I stopped by.

This guy had about a dozen cardboard boxes of the signs in his garage. His wife and two high-school aged children were sitting on the front porch and putting them together for him. In addition to giving the signs away, he was selling t-shirts and buttons. He said that all the money from the sales would go toward buying more signs to give away.

So I bought a button



Took my sign



and headed for home.

When I got home, I realized that his yard would make a perfect picture for you guys to see, so I grabbed the digital camera and headed back.

I asked him if it would be OK to take a picture of his yard to show some friends. He said, "Sure. Hell, post it on the internet if you want to. I want people to see this!" He seemed very pleased when I told him my plan was to post it on the internet.

5000 " " " Magnesium as the major alloy element
1100 series is the commer. pure Alum.

Dude, Bush is the best choice out there for now so he gets my vote.

I'm bumping this back to the top, just cause it's so cool.

BTW, I drove by his house this morning about 0230 hours - looks like he takes the signs down at night and puts them all back up in the morning. I wondered what he was doing about vandals and DU'ers.
