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?
