Thank you to those who have written to the blog email to ask if all is ok. It is. Sometimes I just don’t get the chance to keep up with everything I enjoy doing but then I start to wonder… is it really that?
It also makes me wonder about the “artists” who created the latest subdivision sign.
¿¿Que paso, Señores?? A yard stick or maybe penciling it in before permanently attaching crooked letters might have helped, no? El Partner and I were discussing the grandiosity of some of the entrances of some gated communities and how the old neighborhoods are only delineated by the residents’ memories.
But… then you have someone at Villa del Sol who did something about it – because we can’t imagine it was the developers. I assume they are long gone since this is an old neighborhood. Whoever put up the new Villa del Sol neighborhood marker gets an A for effort, but… not quite as high a grade for placing it right behind a sign & well, other things you can see for yourself.
I’m still waiting to see if Mr. KeyRose’s proposed entrance sign for El Chacon neighborhood would ever get permission, funding and support. Maybe more neighborhoods should be make the effort like Villa del Sol did – something easy for newcomers to spot in the older neighborhoods where the barrio names are sometimes a mystery best left to historians :).
(By the way, I still am welcoming guest posts, especially while I deal with my little funk, aka hueva.)
