You'll Go Down in His-to-ry

I admire people who set out with a purpose to do a big job and see it through. I cannot for the life of me, however, understand what must have been in the mind of the person who undertook to never rest until every last 'deer crossing sign'-- and there must be a hundred of them across 380 square miles of Floyd County-- had a round, red nose painted on the tip of the jumping deer silhouette. Hey! it may not be your life's work, but to some quirky mind, it was their reason to get up every morning.

Yes, it's odd, but not everybody is like you and me, called to a higher purpose, compelled each day to spill our guts or discribe the most mundane of daily blah to the entire world, publishing this little round red nose on cyberspace. Go figure.

Well, a red nose on each deer sign sure beats blasting each one with shotgun pellets--at least we can be pretty sure the red nose is the work of one person (or group of persons?). Maybe it's aliens, Fred. The same ones who made the crop circles.

A bad joke, too oft repeated during car trips: "Look, honey, there's going to be a deer standing on its hind legs ahead." I won't tell you which one of us says it.

Shows imagination, industriousness, a sense of humor, and persistence. Find the guy and hire him. That's what I say.

Ah...we have a more literate defacer of signage in our neighborhood. Some one slapped a one word sticker:


on the STOP signs.
