    Roadside memorial at an intersection in rural Alabama. I’ve worked with the trades in the past. Counted 21 hard hats here. There were well worn , stickered up tradesmen hard hats. Whoever died here meant something to a number of people. I felt sad seeing it , it carried more weight to me than a random roadside cross.

    There's a spot in Tulsa with two crosses with hard hats and hi viz vests. A drunk driver got 'em. I'll get a pic of it next time I'm that way.

    Where is Jerome Taxi located? It looks like it could use a cleaning before it's next fare.
