I looked…couldn’t see what it was…unless it was the pile of fence boards and rusty rebar in front of this service station and convenience store…oh wait, maybe they’re referring to the antique farm implement…no, no, that’s been “here” much longer than the sign. Hmmmm

I think this used to be the Governor of Texas’s re-election campaign headquarters…open sign in the window and a closed sign on the door; missing gas meter most likely due to our millions of dollars budget shortfall not being able to pay the bill; and a “Lone Star Tax” for everyone to enjoy and for him to not talk about.

Yessiree…a quality paint job like this warrants a personalized license plate like that….

Ya think this tow truck guy is towing a broke-down boat or is he maybe using the company vehicle to get away a little early to go wet a line?

Some of you may already be aware that I have a somewhat obsessive photo collection of mailboxes (you’re surprised I know…http://www.flickr.com/photos/28552921@N04/sets/72157621882368383/). This mailbox was discovered last week leaving a job site and is now my newest favorite. Nothing like having a beat up box, on top of a splintered 2”x12”, on top of a few bricks, on top of a faded plastic patio chair, along side the road to greet your hopefully short-height or long-armed mailman. And don’t ask me what’s up with the toxic chemical drum in the back ground…I don’t know nor do I want to know.
It is the little things in life we should be appreciating. They are much more fun and less stressful than getting worked up about the everyday tribulations of life.
Think about the happiness-rush that this feel-good moment offers up (we’ve all been there/done that at least once); this is an excerpt taken from Neil Pasricha’s The Book of Awesome:
“Solving the Wheel of Fortune puzzle before the people on the show…AWESOME!”
