Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Oops! I Forgot this Sign

(click on photo to enlarge)

I forgot to include this photo in my previous post. It too is a bilingual sign. It is one of my favourites. Every time I see it I am reminded of the two times my brakes have failled going down this hill. The first time I managed to slow a little pumping the brakes but the second time they completely failled. It was a thrilling ride down the hill, across the trans-canada highway around a corner and a quarter of a mile along Le Rue Principale in Verner. I am lucky I didn't kill myself of others. Now I always test my brakes before I reach the hill. Posted by Picasa

Hahaha ! that's a funny translation ! In France (and Belgium) you would say "ralentissez" rétrograder means "go backwards" or "downgrade" (a military rang for example)

If I have been in deep mud or water I have to pump my brakes on the Land rover.. Drum Brakes..
The times I have forgot have all happened when coming down hills such as this... makes for a fun few seconds... ha!
