In among all the beautiful flowers that our residents have in the front of their homes are a great variety of “wildlife”.  I’d started noticing these as I scootered around the park, and decided to grab my camera and get some pictures.

Interestingly, someone else has taken an interest, with a somewhat less benign result.  We just received a notice from park management (excuse me, the Community Administrator) saying, “The recent displacement of statuary belonging to various residents has been a cause for concern.  Figurines were taken and moved to other locations within the park causing some people to wonder at the appearance of them in their yard, and the owners to wonder who had removed them.  These thefts and relocation of property are certainly not considered humorous ...”

We may never know who the “comedian” is; nonetheless, I think these photos were taken before the Grand Shuffle.

More funny signs --

At a Car Dealership: 
"The best way to get back on your feet - miss a car payment." 

Outside a Muffler Shop: 
"No appointment necessary. We hear you coming."

In a Veterinarian's waiting room: 
"Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!" 

At the Electric Company 
"We would be delighted if you send in your payment. 
However, if you don't, you will be."
