April Fools’

Free parking

See that black mini-monolith off to the right? That’s a shrouded parking narcing machine. All the machines in our neighborhood were sporting them today…which means:

Free parking!

Pretty expensive to buy all those shrouds and send a crew around tying them on. Must be a business deal negotiation snafu and not an April Fools’ hoax—my bet, anyway.

Pine straw detail

Have you ever seen this edge detail on pine straw? I watched a guy do it several years back, a nice little flick of the wrists after he caught the errant needles with a shovel. I think it’s to keep the pine straw neater, but also to give them an edge that the yard-guys can preserve when they use a mower and blower.

Culture today, and no flower. Heh.
