An ad for Uber. Which I found hilarious. I wonder if they specifically targeted times when the boards were inactive or unable to display info due to delays. I’ll have to keep an eye out in the future, to see if those ads show up all the time or not.
I couldn’t get a sense of anything else around this sign, that might warrant a safety reminder. It just seemed to have been planted in the middle of nowhere, akin to a sign that someone might put next to the sidewalk that says “Eat Your Vegetables.”
As I was waiting to step off the Metra train, I looked down and spotted this penny. Almost instantly, I thought about the childhood pasttime of placing pennies on train tracks.
The part that cracked us both up is that the turtle “escaped.” Trying to imagine this as a kind of slow-motion, multi-hour prison break made me chuckle a little bit.
This week has been an interesting one, in that by tomorrow… I’ll have been working in three different offices within the span of four days. Now that I’m back in Chicago, I have a different commute than the one I’ve had for the last five years.
then, on closer inspection… I wondered if it was the same company I had seen a few weeks ago. Curious, I looked up the blog post I made, and realized this was an entirely different mobile pet grooming company.
Liz and I spotted this, while walking home from work today. At first, I saw the picture of a dog and assumed it was some kind of pet thing. But on closer inspection, I realized it was a mobile grooming spa.
While walking home, I spotted some of the valets on Washington just kind of hanging out. In particular, one guy who was perched on the Detour sign, looking down the road.
But a part of me also feels like it’s tempting fate, just a teensy little bit. I’m imagining a drunk college student staggering home, seeing this, and then thinking “Well, we’ll just see about that!“
At first, I thought the crowd had blocked off State Street and the police were moving in to disperse them. After a few minutes, I realized that the police were part of the protest route and were simply bringing up the rear.
On the way home, we walked by the Hyde Park Garden Fair – which wasn’t open yet, but was being prepared for opening day.
I think this guy was planted in a small bed on the corner, as it doesn’t seem to have many roots. Winds were definitely strong today, but it’s a miracle this guy didn’t uproot before now. It looks as though it was sitting in about a foot of soil!
Spotted this on my walk home, after stopping off at the grocery store. I couldn’t see inside the bag, but the note itself made me chuckle. I liked it so much, I had to set all my bags down so I could take this photo.
“Please do NOT cut down this tree. It is a Hackberry, not an ash.”
Here’s a close-up. I didn’t get a good look at it as I was passing by, but now that I’ve got it in Photoshop… I’m not sure what it is. A symbol? A gesture?
