Walking And Reading

I took this picture at Truman Avenue thinking I might use it to illustrate some point about the lack of self serve car washes in the Lower Keys. One has to make do, in this instance and I either wash the car at home or sometimes I stop in Key Largo and use the facilities there to restore the car to cleanliness.


Then instead of rambling on about how hard car care is in Key West, the principal piece of advice I have, is to not drive an exotic car as you don't want to have to take it to Miami for a mechanic to do the least thing. Which is where I resume my original thread about a bunch of odd little signs, seen recently.


En Français a bizarre dog is just that with no further explanation offered while the sign in English below makes the case that mayhem may ensue if you ignore the advice.


This sign below, photographed previously on this page is a nice reminder that the sign above originated as the sign below, but 'be aware' is now commonly abbreviated into the more common 'beware.'


A blob behind José's Cantina as was, on White Street. It used to be a Cuba restaurant but I suppose now that it's closed the Blob might as well be eating Chinese dumplings.


I wonder what this bumper sticker means? I rather suspect the owner thinks that if you disagree with him you are flat wrong. And screw you if you disagree. Civility in public discourse? How old fashioned!


I wonder how many people have seen the connection between the Corsican Constitution of 1755 as authored by Pasquale de Paoli the revolutionary leader of Corsican Independence doomed to live out his life in exile in London, and the US declaration of independence published two decades later? I how that comparison would be received by the owner of the sticker.

Thank you for not berating me for over thinking the simplest thing!
