Call Us First

This is a point on Highway 1 between Kamloops and Salmon Arm that I’ve been driving past pretty regularly for twelve years now. And each time I do, I am awestruck by the double-barreled irony of a) Putting a billboard for a realty company directly next to an abandoned shack, and b) having “Call Us First” as your slogan and not providing a phone number.

This is alternatively either the saddest sight I’ve ever seen, or a cutting-edge piece of installation art. But even after twelve years, I’m not sure which.



Observation: When you’re under doctor’s orders to sit on the couch and do nothing, it’s surprising how much work you can get caught up on.
