24 hours

all 'unauthorized vehicles' - meaning if this is not your plate number, then go away.
but don't you go away, there is lots of other signs to see.
visit each other and have fun.
the linky will be open for 24 hours until Thursday afternoon (NY/Toronto time)
I am noticing that, apart from me, most people have moved on by then and I hate to think other participants are disappointed at the lack of visitors if they link up later.

license plates in the US and Canada have gone artsy in the last few years 
and now they seem to be advertising their websites as well!

naming neighbourhoods
these banners seem to be popping up everywhere in most cities and towns. 
this one points out that you are at the 5 Points where Dunlop, Bayfield and Clappison Streets 
all meet in downtown Barrie.

chapter and verse

I took this picture because it looked like a new sign with a much more detailed graphic.
the older signs had a dog inside a circle with a line running diagonally across it to indicate no dogs could run loose. now I see it also has more detailed wording which has changed from the usual 'municipal by-law xxx-xx' variety
some of you dog lovers may even be able to identify the breed.

bags and bags of milk

for those of you who saw past the big truck of potato chips and wondered about the 'bag milk' on the sign...
it seems to be a peculiarly, though not exclusively, Ontario way of selling milk. 4 litres in three bags.
and the bags are great for reuse as freezer bags.

have a chip...

try stopping at one, I dare you!
one might think this truck was full of potatoes with a little man inside slicing them into thin chips,

spry ... or not

I did a double take - and a u-turn - when I saw this sign
you have a choice of nimble...or dead.

stating the obvious

Mr Linky account is expiring, so I am trying something new
it has an extra step which is annoying, but let me know.
