I Finally Did It

Recommended Posts

Surely you've heard the joke about the numbers-driven Waymarker - "He'd even Waymark a stop sign if he could.".

I believe I read that on this forum some years back and the statement has stuck with me for some reason.

 

Today is Canada Day. Happy Canada Day everyone!!!

I thought it might be nice to do something a bit different to help celebrate our birthday this year so...

...today, on our country's birthday, I finally managed to legitimately Waymark a Stop Sign!!! Well, two, actually.

Yeah, BC. Is there a question here? Oh - one sec...

... OK, now I see. Neither I nor Thierry caught that. Thanks and Happy Canada Day!

I loved that line from the article : It’s to get people to stop at that intersection and pause and consider coming downtown rather than just burning on through to the 2nd Street bridge.

You caught that, did You? Yes, it seems it was more about economics than it was about safety.

 

Happy Canada Day to you, too, LH.

Happy Canada Day, Keith!  Now, you need to go to a town small enough where they actually document rolling up the sidewalks in the evening OR have competitive watching paint dry championships.  :)  Wait, that means you're in small town Oklahoma!  (I've spent way too many evenings at my Grandmother's in the thriving metropolis of Fairland, Oklahoma!)

I guess I can't say anything bad about your stop sign, though, I waymarked a street corner near my house. -   Back of Stop Sign - LOL

Nice try, Tom, but not nearly as decadent as Waymarking a stop sign. :) :P :D

And  Happy Canada Day to you, too, Tom.

new challenge -- waymark a kitchen sink. Or sliced bread.

 

Now Lee, that's just silly. Have you ever tried to get a slice of bread to stand up so you could take its pic?

As for the kitchen sink, somewhere in this world there must be a junk-art piece that incorporates a kitchen sink.

BTW - perchance, were you in the kitchen when you wrote that?

no, actually I was in the bedroom.  But I was thinking that lots of people used to say "Everything, including the kitchen sink." and "Better than sliced bread, or best thing since sliced bread." So they'd make good challenges.

The sliced bread might be a tall order, but we're looking into the possibilities of a kitchen sink right now. We'll keep you posted if we come up with something.

Well, we went to the World (I think it was) chain saw carving championship last year. That can get tedious at times.

Sliced Bread  
Okay - Chillicothe, Missouri - the hometown and originator of sliced bread - yea, it's kinda been waymarked.  :)  
It's actually a nice little town.

That's too cool!!

Guess we can cross that off the list as it's already been done.
