No, Gentle Readers, this was one unscheduled stop when I spotted this sign at an intersection in South Dakota.
As you will soon realize, I just had to stop.
White, South Dakota, is a city (?), population 485 in the 2010 census, named for an early settler, W.H. White. Thirteen-and-a-half miles away is Bruce, South Dakota, a city (?) with a population of 204 in the 2010 census. It was originally called Lee but was renamed in 1883.
Now most people probably wouldn't find that interesting but for a white boy named Bruce that intersection was nigh unto irresistable for yet another photo opportunity.
(Special thanks to the photographer for this series, the incomparable Judy, a.k.a. She Who Must Be Obeyed.)

Did you ever have young sandhill cranes try to imprint on you?ReplyDelete
I know there's a good comeback for this but I just can't think of it right now.Delete
This one made me smile!ReplyDelete
So...did you have to change into your picture-taking shorts? Seeing as it was not a state border, you know.ReplyDelete
I never took 'em off!Delete
'White Bruce' reminds me of a sign board near my brother's place a bit further east of here in France. The French usually put the first name after the family name on official things, and this particular business belongs to a man whose given name is Bruno (quite common), and family name Hairy (a bit unusual), so the sign points the way to 'Hairy Bruno'.ReplyDelete
Our grandson had a much loved teddy bear called Bruno, and I've always wanted to send him a picture of the sigh, but have never had the opportunity to photograph it.
That's a great story. You must get that photo.Delete
