July - The Month in Review

And so farewell and good riddance to July 2010, a month that should have been outlawed and expunged, weatherwise.  The heat and humidity were worse than they had a right to be.
Anyway, here are a few pics from July that didn't make it to the blog previously:

On a roll . . . 
This roving gang of marauding youths
had fun rolling a trash can at River Park.

What I Saw Today (July 31, 2010)

(Click on pics.)

What were those lines from Pleasant Valley Sunday:

Rows of houses that are all the same,
And no one seems to care.

Well maybe not completely the same, 
but close enough.

Cell phone antennas . . on an elementary school?
(Park Elementary, to be exact.)
The jury is still out on this, but it doesn't seem like a good idea 
to have a radiation source near children's developing brains.

More info HERE.

Even a moose knows which way
the wind blows in this town.

This is just wrong on so many levels.

Difference of opinion

So, does this mean you can get
into the water as long as you don't move your arms, that is, when being baptized?
Or does it mean you shouldn't swim but drown instead?
Does the NO SWIMMING rule apply only
to the boat ramp and kayak launching areas (where such signs are posted), 
or does it mean you can't swim in the river at all?
I hope the latter isn't true.
How ludicrous it would be if a person can't SWIM in a RIVER.

Someone's really not getting the idea.
The container clearly says SCRAP FISHING LINE.
Nowhere does it say empty soda bottles and other trash.
There is a trash can several steps away from where this container is located.
Anyone walking would pass said trash receptacle on their way up the steps.  
It's the height (or depth) of laziness not to
carry a few pieces of trash to their rightful place.  

Same basic idea as stated above

Partied out

This notice was taped to a door on Second Street.

Interestingly, though, the air conditioner
was running, and the second floor
windows were open.

Doctor Who must be around here somewhere.
Or maybe Doc Emmett Brown.

I hate to admit it, but there's something
about these types of windows
that makes you WANT to break them.
