Goose crossing

geese crossing in troy

No, honk you!

Peter sent along this pic of cars stopped along Route 40 in Troy so a gaggle of geese could cross.

It makes us smile -- the way the geese look like they're just sauntering across the road. Like one of them is telling the drivers: "You honking at me? Let me tell you about honking." (Of course, we might have felt differently if we were actually there waiting for the gaggle to cross.)

Also, geese apparently don't think much of crosswalks.

(Thanks, Peter!)

Freakin' Canadians, always acting like they own the place.

If I remember correctly, there is in fact a "Goose Crossing" sign very close to where that picture was taken. :-)

Lazy.

Newsflash: YOU CAN FLY. Try harder.

It's so discouraging when haters like B come out of the woodwork to heckle the Goose Pride Parade.

@LB: not only does he hate them, he also stuffs them with duck(en), and *eats* them! I've seen him. I was at the same table. You delicious, delicious roadk... huh creatures.

You know what, the geese have made their feelings quite clear, I think there's a mutual understanding between us.

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
