Encino. Sepulveda.

Loyal reader April T. sends in these two pics purportedly taken by her nameless sister who supposedly lives out by the Sepulveda Dam. A carton of Parliament filter cigarettes goes out to sister X as our little way of saying "Gracias!"

The sands of time

The Sands of Iwo Jima. Found this sign in the driveway of our local jarhead. Got there too late to get the sand.

So much free, so little time

We've got 3 kids and cover a lot of miles just ferrying them to and from their friends' houses. On the downside, it takes a lot of time and uses a lot of gas, on the upside, it's almost always fun to hang with the punks in the car and sometimes we pass a free sign. Or two. Or three. Or five. Yesterday was a banner day for free signs.

Lovely and loyal reader Rachel C.D. sends in this exercise in naming items from the brownstone steps of New York City. Money makin' Manhattan. The big apple. Gotham. I see there's a free lamp and a free basket, I only wish the rest of the stuff were labelled so I could know what it is.

Special thanks and a case of Yonex AS-50 Shuttlecocks go out to R.C.D. as our little way of saying "Yo. Tanks a lot."

Brooklyn reader Season Whatever sends in this free sign behind bars from the land of Welcome Back, Kotter. A case of baby back ribs goes out to S.W. as a yummy token of our affection.

POST # 100!!!

Loyal reader and wonderful friend April T. sends in this pic, complete with her own title suggestion: Toy Story 4 "The Big Escape". Too bad we already had a title all picked out for this momentous hundredth post. 100 posts and, I'm guessing, about 130 free signs. Not too bad for 15 months of collecting. A case of 1995 Krug "Clos Ambonnay" Brut Champagne goes out to April T. as a token of our appreciation.

3 for 99

This is my 99th post here and what a swell one it is, with 3 fab shots from 3 fab peeps (okay, 2 fab peeps and me).

Greta's giving away some skids and I happened to be on the scene to snap the pic below:

Muito gostosa reader Andrea M. sent in this lovely sign:

And reader Rachel C.D. took time out of her busy birthday week 2010 to snap and send this sign from the bed people who hate capital "R"s.

A case of Downtown Leroy Brown's Perfect Manhattan in a Can goes out to the gals as our little way of saying "thanks." Thanks.
