When PhillyCarShare first came to Phila,
I started driving again. Early on I found a
a $300 ticket on the car window after just

No identifying symbols or words. Just short and blue.
I live in Center City Phila. I often see odd
things. After a guy dressed like a hoagie, or
underpants and a giant glittery high heeled shoe-car
stuck in traffic, a short blue parking meter registers
only that the city must have gotten a "deal" from a
new meter company who cut corners.... or rather
Lo and behold.... this morning, I saw yet another
bit of evidence to support my case.
A tree wearing a sweater, at the corner of 18th
and Walnuts Sts. Signed slipstitch.
