Foto Friday - Save the Fishies!

Happy Friday! It's been a fairly good week. The weather turned out to be quite nice...only one day that we didn't go out for a walk. I've started to incorporate a nice sized hill in my walk (with Finn in the stroller) to balance out all of my dietary indulgences. It's fine for now, but I'm not sure if I'll be so willing to do it when it's 80 plus degrees out.

I saw this painted a couple places along my neighborhood walk. It reads "Dump No Waste Drains To River." I don't think I've ever noticed them before, but who knows, maybe they've been there all along. Maybe some of my readers who have lived near the three rivers all their lives can tell me if this is standard and I'm still just a newbie around here. Amanda...this is your old 'hood...have you seen these? In any case, I think they're cool. Whose idea was it to make it so cute with the fish? I imagine when Finn is older, it can be an opener to a childhood environmental discussion. That would be after we ditch the SUV for a Prius. Ooh, this parenting stuff is going to be tricky.

Have a nice weekend, folks!

I would bet they are new additions to the drains Jen! I don't recall seeing them in my youth and the paint seems fresh to me. I think it is a great reminder though! Those drains don't pass through good ole Alcosan!
