I met this dog on Elgin Street the other day. He rides in a stroller because he only has three legs. So when his companion made him sit up and wave to me, he was balancing on only one leg.
Then, shortly after running into the three-legged dog (which reminds me of a joke I’d love to share it with you, but I can only remember the punchline: “I’m lookin’ for the man who shot my paw.” Ha ha ha), I ran across another piece of street art by Elmaks.
It’s the City of Ottawa official graffiti station. I had heard of it a week or two earlier but couldn’t find it when I was looking for it. By the time I stumbled across it, it had been vandalized.
Maybe Elmaks will tell us what it used to look like. You can see what it used to look like here.
Speaking of vandalized, I was saddened to see that the Mayor Larry Swap Box, on Lisgar near Bank, had its door ripped off. That swap box is part of my daily life, and it’s just not the same when I can’t open the door and peek inside. I’m still putting things in it, but it’s not the same. I miss the door.
From vandalized to scandalized – this poster freaked me out. Yikes. I have a question for the men. How much does it cost to go to the barber? Does it make any sense on any level to spend $20 to get your neck waxed “in between barber shop visits”? (Click the image to enlarge it.)
Here are a couple of groovers I’ve seen lately. You can’t tell from the picture how funny she looks when she walks; you’ll just have to take my word for it. She definitely marches to the beat of her own drummer.
This guy walks normally for about 20 seconds and then spontanously bursts into dance for ten or fifteen seconds. Then he walks normally again for 20 seconds. He seems unable to resist his own reflection in store windows: it just turns him into a dancing fool!
For those of you who live in Centretown, there’s a new vet clinic opening up on Somerset near Preston.
Last but definitely not least, I was pleased to see that the Lysol Woman survived another winter.
