    That is strange, no Washingtons there?

    Maybe people are already confused enough, Washington State vs Washington DC?

    Lots of Washingtons around here, we have a Washington Street and a Lincoln Street, but they are parallel so no crossing sign.

      I guess I could have taken a photo of a car license plate, but that just did not seem right on a bicycling site ;’-0.
      I know there have to be some Washingtons around, but not nearby me enough to get on Presidents Day ;’-/.

    After reading the President’s Day entries yesterday, I Googled “funny presidential quotes.” As you can guess, the list is long and many. Here’s one to go with your Lincoln sign: “If I were two faced, would I be wearing this one?” Or perhaps this one…”He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas better than any man I ever met.” Or perhaps this one…”If this is coffee, please bring me some tea; but if this is tea, please bring me some coffee.” Cheers & happy pedaling.

    That is kinda funny you couldn’t find a Washington in Washington 🙂

    As a kid, it was a big deal to go to the nearest big city (Indianapolis) to go shopping at the big indoor malls. One of them was called Washington Square – these days the mall is pretty close to dead and in a rough part of town, but the 1980s were the heyday for that sort of thing and is one of my biggest memories of “back to school” clothes shopping.

      Oh yes — shopping for school clothes —- and school supplies (always my favorite) were such fun. Back in my home town near Baltimore the same thing is true about many of those first shopping malls. They had their heyday for sure, and I have many memories of trips to the nearest one which was brand new at the time.
