Clearwater, Florida: Drew St. Small Town Street Scene
A bright and shiny day in Clearwater, Florida. You can almost feel the warm sunshine on your face, as you walk happily down the street. The day is full of potential, and there seems to be no stopping your soaring spirit. Life is good.

"... Peter's eyes danced about him like a couple of out of control fairies. There seemed to be so much to see that he was dizzy. The world seemed so full of potential today. Everywhere he looked was the look of prosperity. There was success all around him.

He shuddered in anticipation of getting a foothold in this new town. Thoughts of all the various businesses he might enjoy opening filled his mind. Slowly he continued to wander down the street, taking in all the various shops, thinking of how he would do this different than that one, or that better than this one.

As he walked, he noticed a Clearwater Police cruiser approaching. The officer was, of course, just cruising down the street. But Peter's face clouded over for a moment as the car came near. His smile faded and his expression became one of caution and secrecy. Nobody was near to notice this transformation, and seconds after the cruiser had past, Peter was back to smiling and dreaming his big dreams..."

Clearwater, Florida: Rear View Sunrise Commute

Clearwater, Florida: Rear View Sunrise Commute
Cruising down the street on the commute to work. Checking the rear view for the Po-Po, and there she is, Mother Sunshine, rising up from the ashes of yesterday.

"... Jimmy smiled as he watched the sun coming up behind him. It felt so good to him to have left yesterday behind. As he drove, and the miles drifted into his past, so did all the bad feelings, all the pain and sorrow. He felt free. He felt more free than he could ever remember feeling in his life.

He hummed a happy tune while he switched stations on the radio, looking for some music to match his mood. At the next light, after he found a station to his liking, he glanced at the duffle bag on the seat next to him. Grinning again, he reached inside and chuckled as his hand closed around the..."

Clearwater, Florida: Trash, Trash, Trash, LitterBugs Suck

Clearwater, Florida: Trash, Trash, Trash, Litter Bugs Suck
"... Marcus watched in silence from this hiding place. It was her, he was certain now, he could see her face clearly, and it was the same woman he had seen here three times before. The anger boiled up in him once again, as it did every time he saw them in action. Then he forced himself to calm down. He was a Team Leader, after all, he had responsibilities, he had to LEAD. And so he would.

As the woman turned and headed back to her home up the street, he signaled to his two patrolmen hiding, like him, in the thick shrubbery at the rear of the park. They advanced silently, convening in the space the woman had most recently vacated. 'Alright guys,' he said, 'you know the drill. Secure the video evidence, collect the physical evidence, and then meet me two houses down from the subject's home.'

As they started bagging the evidence, Marcus could feel the anger rising in him again. But then he had a thought. This was a thought he had often. He thought to himself what a shock it would be for the woman, when she looked in the mirror tomorrow morning, and saw tattooed across her forehead the word 'LITTERBUG'..."

Clearwater, Florida: PSTA Bus Services Will Get You Around

Clearwater, Florida: PSTA Bus Services Will Get You Around
Story time.

Janice boarded the bus and plopped heavily into the first empty seat she saw. She was too tired to care if it was the best seat on the bus, or away from the weirdos, or whatever. She just needed to sit down, and she needed a few minutes to think. If nothing else, that was one thing the bus would be good for, some time to think without having to do anything else.

She saw the PSTA sign at the front of the bus and wondered if that really stood for People Seldom Turnout Alright. It wasn't totally fair, of course. It could be argued that she did, in fact, bear some responsibility for the mess she was in today. But she was not in the mood to accept that responsibility. So she turned it all back on Mark, and blamed it on him.

But blaming him, unfortunately, would not solve the problem. No matter who was to blame, she still had to figure out what to do next. She thought of her mother again, but it did not feel good. The image of her mother's 'disapproving' look shut down that avenue of opportunity pretty quick. Then she thought of her friend Alison. She was working at the Carson Clinic today, and she might be able to help her figure this mess out!

Clearwater, Florida: Private Property No Trespassing Sign

Click for larger picture in a new window
Clearwater, Florida: Private Property No Trespassing SignIt's not the most welcoming sign you will ever see. And it is a sad commentary that we even have to put them up. In my twisted mind, if it's not your property, you don't go on it without permission. No sign needed. Oh well.

Speaking of twisted minds and Outrageous Lies:

"Today NASA released startling news concerning the new Ibex Spacecraft (Interstellar Boundary Explorer). According to photography released from NASA, taken by the Ibex, there is alien life in outer space, and they don't want us out there!" Experts theorize that the alien beings have been monitoring our transmission of digital imagery and realized that the classic Private Property sign might be the best way to keep us out of the Delta Quadrant. In classic form, the Ibex ignored the posted No Trespassing message, and headed on into the Quadrant.

Clearwater, Florida: Giant United States Flag
Now that is one PROUD flag of the United States! What is it about car dealerships that they have such HUGE flags? I don't know, but I do enjoy seeing them blowing in the breeze.
