#183 - July 2008 Theme Day: "No . . ." signs

NoCoyotes


Coyotes in Lisbon?

This sign is at some lousy bushes between sidewalks. Was put there by the parish to prevent the owners of bring there their dogs. I do not understand the objective when there is no maintenance and the bushes are full of garbage.

This sign was adjusted by George Townboy since I could not find any with the word NO.

Também fiquei curiosa... coiotes numa área urbana em Lisboa? Achei engraçado também o comentário de marie-noyale... os coiotes sabem ler! LOL!

Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do said...

True! "Don't tell us what to do with our place". More 'No's!!

Kuanyin said...

Coyotes! That's funny!

Hi Maria,

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

I see you found an adorable No sign. The no coyote surprised me as I never thought of them being able to read signs. LOL

Isn't it almost funny to think of adult people scurrying around their communities taking pictures of signs. And if somebody had asked what that is all about and you said a sign with "no" on it, they might... well. It is kind of funny.

Astounding! No coyotes but you can dump your rubbish and they don't say NO to that. Councils are the same the world over.

I like your choice for the Theme.

Suzi-k said...

hehe, nice one! Portuguese "coyotes" are clearly well educated.

D.C. Confidential said...

Life is fully of ironies and churches are the most ironic of all! Great photo!

Happy Theme Day!

Harry Makertia said...

Great shot of your theme day! I like it! Happy theme day!

mirage2g said...

I should have been no trash instead of dog then. Perhaps it used to be a spot where dogs make pupu, after they put the sign it became a place for garbage? Happy theme day.

Estás no gozo, não estás?

I say it's unique.
