Apparently about ten minutes, DawnStorm; at least here.

This morning I was stopped in a line of cars at a traffic light in the middle lane out of three westbound lanes. A car stopped next to me in the left lane, and a woman in the passenger seat got out, walked over to the median, and then proceeded to cross the three eastbound lanes.

I saw a transit van with the following warning sign on it...

“Caution, Owls in transit!!”

Not sure why the presence of Owls would require other road users to be more cautious??*


*Unless they were driving?

I saw a fox on the campus of New Mexico State University. This is a large campus in an urban area.

There are currently seven police cars at the end of my street, a residential cul-de-sac. None have their lights on, and the cops are sort of milling around, but this is very unnerving.

I think I saw a drug deal go down at my corner this past Thursday night.

I saw a rather nice looking suitcase that appeared to have been discarded on the side of the road.

One of my neighbors has a little placard taped to her door that reads "Registered ACLU voter". I'm guessing to scare off Republican pollsters?

While waiting for the bus yesterday, I saw a young doe (a deer, a female deer ) galloping towards the nearby canal in the commercial zone my workplace is situated in. Now, there's a forest nearby, so it's not really odd, but still, it's not a thing you see everyday.

I saw an Australian Magpie with twin babies. Fully grown but still with their baby feathers. (Australians will get what this means, two lot's of "ARC ARC (feed me! FEED ME!!)" Even when they are quite capable of getting their own food.

I saw a car with feather boas, model & toy horses, and random trees glued to its roof. The horses and trees were in a sort of tableau in the middle, while the feather boas were around the edge.

I heard a tapping noise on the metal door of my TDY quarters and I looked out, no one there and then I noticed a crab on the walkway.

It ran away when I tried to take its photo. I don't think it left a pamphlet on the door, so maybe it was representing the crabby welcome wagon?

Maybe he wanted to witness for the Supreme Pincher.

I saw a deflated yellow whoopee-cushion on the pavement. I didn't know children even still had whoopee-cushions. Maybe it was dropped by an old person.

Also yesterday evening I saw a lot of what looked like a lot of yellow-and-white striped paper straws dropped randomly and flattened on the pavement. The only reason I'm not sure if they were straws was that they seemed uniformly flat and they still looked too clean to have been trodden that far into the ground by people walking over them.

In London on the way to the Brexit protest yesterday, in the middle of the hundreds of people walking towards the start in the street I was on, I saw a man in shirtsleeves and a waistcoat walking across the crowd with an armful of bottles of brandy and gin. Probably just a waiter from a nearby hotel who had been sent to restock, but he looked quite incongruous in the circumstances!

I saw a rabbit on my neighbor's lawn, watching Ferdinand and I walk by. This is the second rabbit I've seen in less than a week, and also the second rabbit I can ever remember seeing in the neighborhood.

Years ago when I was working night audit at the Hacienda del Sol here in Tucson I heard a thump at the door. It was painted glass, but I didn't see anything through it, but I opened the door anyhow. Nothing. I looked down and a ginormous road was sitting there, staring up at me. I chased it around the lobby trying to grab it to take it outside but it finally hid under a credenza and I couldn't reach it.

Normally, I would put that into "Cars you saw today", but...

Remember when I told you I had seen an Aston Martin DB7 at the local Volkswagen dealership ? Well, there it was again, in the showroom, the bonnet open, sandwiched between an old VW Beetle and an old VW Kombi. Politics is not the only thing that leads to strange bedfellows, it seems.

This morning I saw a guy crossing the street wearing black pants, a black shirt, and a black cape. I guess it was probably Halloween related, even thought it's still a week and a half away, although he wasn't wearing any vampire makeup and accessories or anything that would really complete the costume. I guess he probably was planning on putting on the rest when he arrived at his destination.
