Photo Friday: Not a Toy

While I was thrilled to see the train engine I climbed as a child still at Dennis The Menace Park in Monterey, I was also surprised to see that kids are still allowed to climb all over it. California is a particularly litigious state, and I imagine that local parents have fought on and off through the years to keep the train at the park. It must cost a pretty penny to insure - especially if the insurance company has figured out that this sign is totally ineffective.

    The lawyer comfort sign cracks me up. It sad that we live in a world where those signs are even needed. What ever happened to common sense?

    That's literally a sign of the times. Yeah, it's kind of sad.

    I love that it looks like they had to change "AN historical exhibit" to "A historical exhibit".
