In Florida, my friend Russ Lemmon spotted this sign in a retirement community. I like how the Allen in question merits a first initial.
An assisted living complex in Rancho Cucamonga has a “welcome” sign so specific, mysterious and emphatic (two exclamation points!!), that I felt compelled to pull over to take a photo.
An Upland reader who might rather I didn’t use his name sent me the above photo with the comment, “Did you know about ‘party aisle #15′ at Home Depot?”
Let me know when the lingerie is half off. (Seen in Upland.)
… oodwill toward men. Seen in Chino. Merry Christmas!
The fictional holiday from “Seinfeld” is catching on here in the real world. My former colleague Wendy Leung found this front yard Christmas decoration in Oxnard spared space for Festivus. The holiday is celebrated on Dec. 23 (Sunday this year) with feats of strength and the airing of grievances. The only official Festivus decoration is an unadorned aluminum pole. It’s a low-budget holiday.
How bad is the economy? Even stores devoted to liquidation are closing. Everything must go from the everything-must-go store at Base Line and Archibald in Rancho Cucamonga. Reader Andy shot the photo and says his first reaction was a startled, “Is the liquidation store liquidating itself?”
Kids! Get your own stegosaurus, triceratops or pteranodon! Seen at the Chino Promenade center (in the 21st century).
A lot of attention has been paid to undecided voters, but in Claremont, one homeowner has decided to urge a blanket “no” vote. Seen on Indian Hill Boulevard.
So who do you like in the election? I’m leaning toward Gun Show, although Credit Repair makes some good points. Seen in Ontario at 4th and Via Asti, west of Ontario Mills.
