¿Quien huele?

What’s up with La Azteca neighborhood?? Gil’s billboard on Matamoros (before turning into Chihuahua) tells us…

Well, it doesn’t “kind of” smell funky, it really does stink; but it comes and goes. We all know the city is working on moving the water treatment plant right next to La Azteca so… unless Mr. Gil was referring to an actual dead possum (aka, Tlacuache)??

You sometimes get the whiff of deceased tlacuaches in downtown Laredo (I was going to put a picture of the latest dead tlacuache but… our of consideration for the sensitive readers). I hope that by this week, Gil can return to his past message board:

… which applies to my feelings about my downtown hood, possums and all.

    Maybe the next sign will read: “Bienvenidos a Puchitlán.”

    He had one that made crack up each time I read it and each time I would hear the “sound system” in people’s cars.

    It read something to liking of ” Primero cambiela las speekers!” 😀
