Nothing like digging in the back of the fridge to find a meal. This cheddar didn't age well.

Throw it in the yard for the squirrels. Their taste in edibles is eclectic, catholic, indiscriminant and disgusting.

There is a squirrel nest in every tree, sometimes 3. They go from garbage to garbage. They are all fat. They dont need that mold. They get other scraps. I drop a crust of bread and call and its gone in 20 minutes. I saw a white squirrel yesterday and me with my 18-35mm.😡

Are you playing footsie with us?
This pattern has become common since the big push for handicap access and facilitation. One of several standard warning pads placed at cross walks so blind or severely visually people impaired will know when they've come to the edge of a road. One minor problem might be clearing the knobby surface of snow & ice.
I honestly thought those were put in for non skid for wheelchairs, because everywhere I see them they are incorporated on ramps, even though I think the bumps would hinder the wheelchairs. I learned something today!

Definitely for visually impaired. Try a GOOGLE search for "crosswalk warning for visually impaired."
