I have nothing derogatory (is that spelled right?) to say to the Lizard...this time!  This is simply a post so I can get notified when there are new posts here!



And GO GET IT GINNY!  DON'T LET THE 211 GINNY'S GET THERE FIRST!

Methinks Lizardo has an inflated sense of his actual attractiveness. The posted lizard is much better looking than him so it couldn't possibly be a self-portrait.

I love the sign on the building



"Parking is for @@@ @@@@@@@ Customers only.  All others will be stripped and sold for parts ... and their cars too!"



But what if I *want* to be stripped and sold for parts?

My turn! Here's my pic:


OK, I doesn't matter to me if this picture is taken day or night, but I need to see the turn signal ... and there's a trick to it

Coords: N49 5_.___  W097 0_.___



I've heard that this traffic signal is the only one in existence

Actually, I think there is a u-turn signal like that in Rochester, NY as well.  When I first saw that photo, I thought "oh, I know where that is", but then remembered it was the wrong city!

The corner of Mcphillips and Kingsbury N49.57.034  W097.08.997 This was tougher than I thought. It seems that the turning light blinks for 3 seconds to make the u-turn. That means it is on for 1 1/2 secs and off for 1 1/2 secs. I took eight pics before I got one with the light on.

Tricky isn't it?  I took many photos AND a video recording.  Only 1 was decent enough to post.



Good job! OK, your turn!
