Still Splain-in'

Yes, that's right. I'm still explaining signs to my kids. EVERYDAY there is something. I've decided to start taking the camera with me everywhere I go so that you can get a better picture of what I am dealing with.

This first sign is out in the front of El Arroyo Mexican restaurant. The sign is kinda famous because they change it everyday. Most of the time it is about a current event and pretty witty. This one made me chuckle. I couldn't think for the life of me how to explain it to the kids. 'Yes guys, former President Clinton is a Democrat. And yes, Sarah Palin is a Republican. And they are trying to be funny...ha ha ha...and hey, look over there at the slug bug.'

Now this display was WAY harder to explain because I was trying to help the kids understand that these folks are Democrat and they are pretending that these famous Republicans are dead in a Halloween way. They don't really want them dead, or at least I don't think they do. And you should know, this display is across the street from the school yard where S practices soccer. Why in the world can't they just have a Happy Halloween sign???? (Click photo to zoom in on the 'Elephant Graveyard.'

More to come...

It's so much fun when they start "getting it."
Glad I don't line IN Austin, right now ;-)
Drove to an Austin library branch yesterday. Had to explain the men collecting for a "ministry" and why I'm not giving them money.

I didn't understand El Arroyo's signs though... Although Powell has endorsed Obama, Clinton has also endorsed Obama. So, I don't get it. It's not even funny to me. Mrs. Carr, when we drive around I guess you're gonna have to splain the signs to me too. LOL
