Great race

we drove past this sign yesterday, on our way to the beach! in fact, i made tim turn the car so i could take a picture of it as we both found it hilarious. "happy spring, thanks for a great race".  it generated an enormous amount of questions.. :) what does spring have to do with the race? who are they thanking? and who are they? and, more importantly, what race? the human race? do we really have to be thankful for that? hmm, i guess i should leave it at that.... an endless musing on the human race might be a bit boring, and perhaps too negative....
defenitely, it will be, at least for a while, another of our quotes... like "surrender, then denny's", or, from sheldon: "Hello, Oompah-Loompahs of science" he actually says that about engineers; "engineering - this is where the semi-skilled workers realize the work of better minds". hmm, i am not an engineer, but i do feel like an oompah-loompah of science on a regular basis.... now is that good or bad? :)

cat would like to tell all her followers to CLICK on the picture, only then you will be satisfied with a sharp image.

Those american signs are really mysterious, you can make imaginations about everything. Who makes such signs. Oompha-Loompah, I remember of a children movie long ago. Don't know the name anymore, but we have said/sung that a long time. It keeps in your head a funny expression.

maybe it was the black people against the white people in a soccer match? that would be easy for the players :) back in grammar school we used to play marocco against netherlands :)

Clicked it. Could be a fun idea to make a few signs that no one will be able to understand.
