Around Town

Still have that surplus of photos I talked about yesterday. So, today there are 6, mostly taken around town. Or at Mc Donald's (definitely NOT in my town). But all within the past week.

14(1)/366 - Big America, Grand Canyon Burger.
McDonald's does silly stuff here. I try every new burger in a series and take it as a personal challenge.
As I type this, I have lunch plans today to go try the current one, the Las Vegas Burger.

14(2)/366 - Comfy Shoes.
It's hard to find my size here. Got these at home for $14, and they make me smile every day.

14(3)/366 - Wild Garbage Cage
This is where my untamed garbage goes. The sign reminds us to follow the (very many) rules.
It's OK. I have a calendar and a wall chart to keep me in line help me understand what day is which garbage.

14(4)/366 - Open Space
I live in the middle of nowhere. So I'm always struck by this modern new building in town.
It houses our Board of Ed, so we meet here for weekly meetings.
No heat or AC, though, so let's don't get too excited about the modernity of it all, yah?

14(5)/366 - From the 3rd Floor.
This is what I see when I walk out of about 3 of my classes each week.
I don't love climbing the stairs, but I love the view.

14(6)/366 - Tall.
This is one of the two tallest things in town, not counting the hills/mountains.
