090805 Miles To

A curious old mile post. Almost looks as though it could be used to post variable distances : just as though it would be 5 miles to Halifax one day but only 3 miles on alternate Saturdays. But there again, maybe that is just my rather strange mind at work.

Our interstate highways are now crazy enough to mark with a sign every tenth of a mile along the roads. Can you imagine what that would look like with those markers. Your history is amazing to a plainsmen of North America. The litter container ain't plastic.

No, if you threw that litter bin at someone they wouldn't quickly get up again. If you threw that milepost at someone they would never get up again.
