Once, coming home from Nelson, B.C., I found a Canadian campaign sign in a trash barrel. It was still attached to a wooden stake. I put it in my car.
My plan was to bring it home and then stick it in the ground at one of those places around town that have clusters of political signs. It would have been a private joke, if you will.
But I never got around to actually doing it. Maybe it's just as well. Instead of being puzzled, there's a chance some here would have seen it as a sure sign of a plot to advance the cause of one-world government. Or something.
