Pat’s Walking Photos
Today’s Walking Photo: I’m ridiculously over-excited about this. See, in a previous post from June I made a cheap joke about the name of this landscaping service, playing on the whole idea of of ants doing your landscaping. Sorry, but I just get lazy sometimes.
Fast forward to the present, when I find this flyer for the same company, but with an updated design that shows AN ANT PUSHING A LAWN MOWER! They embraced the branding potential of the name, and I feel vindicated.
I’m still not a fan of the flyers taped to mailbox posts and dropped in driveways, but I’m taking a one-day break from that pet peeve.

Today’s Walking Photo: Check this out, you guys. Hold on now, don’t just assume you saw this right – look again. Do you see yet? Or do you still think this is a cute little country cottage with a white picket fence? Ready for me to blow your mind?
IT’S ACTUALLY A PORTA POTTY. YES, I’M SERIOUS.
Now do you see it? Crazy, right? Somebody really put a lot of work into this. Kudos, I say. Expertly camouflaged. I was ready to move in.

Today’s Walking Photo: Man, I bet the recycling haulers are all like, “Hey Bob, c’mere and look at this! Isn’t it just wonderful how these bottles and jars are so meticulously organized? I mean, it makes such a big difference when we DUMP THEM INTO THIS HUGE COLLECTION BIN.”

Today’s Walking Photo: Believe me, when I went out on my walk today I was not expecting to come face-to-face with an elusive albino deer! It appears to be quite timid – it just froze up completely when it saw me.

Today’s Walking Photo: A suitably spooky message as Halloween approaches, and at the same time, a nice reminder of who’s really in charge out there in the great out-of-doors.
"Yeah buddy, sure, put your sign right there. I’ll take real good care of it. Heh, heh…"

Today’s Walking Photo: Oh come on now, what the hell IS this?! It’s almost in the sewer, so it’s totally cool? God, I just hate people so much sometimes.

Today’s Walking Photo: A sure sign of autumn in Southwest Portland – the giant bats arrive and roost open-mouthed in neighborhood trees.
