No Parking. I Mean It.

Noparking300Saw this in Denver last week.  Reminded me of the one I saw in Noe Valley, SFO, "Don't even think about parking here."

Also seen in Denver, on cardboard held by a street beggar, "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. You've heard it all before.  Please give money.  Thanks."

Anyone see the King of the Hill episode where Bobby and Joseph become cool street beggars?  I saw part of last night, but not the end.

Every now and then I want to get a begging permit and hit the streets of Durham to see what it's like and how I'd do.  Of course, I'd probably see a lot of people I know, and that would be kind of awkward.  (Like when it happened to Rick Redfern in Doonesbury.)

Hilary and I plan to go busking when the weather cools.  That should be interesting.

As for now -- no staying up late.  Sleep is inevitable.  (I have a cold.)

My favorite street begger sign, which my friend Sean reported to me: "Family killed by ninjas. Need money to pay for karate lessons."
