It’s Not All Mary Poppins

To the Right, Left, or…?

Travel on my street these days is an ongoing adventure. One morning there is the usual dirt road just beyond my porch steps, the next, a gaping hole. Lately, our sidewalks have been vanishing in segments, to be replaced with stroller-jolting mixes of sand and very large-grade gravel.

This does not, as you can see, deter us. We strike out boldly, lured by the noise, dust, and great big machines.

However, it can be a bit confusing if one, in the interests of being a Good Role Model, tries to obey all the directives provided by the road workers. Take for example, this sign:

Yes, yes that’s what it says.

So, good law-abiding citizens that we are, where do we go from here?
