    A lot of people will scram when they see police, even if they were doing nothing wrong.

    Did you scram out of that place as soon as you took your photo? wink

    lol @drevil that would drive me nuts!

    Grammar messups get me even worse. You know those signs st the grocery stores that say “15  items or LESS”? I have fantasies of bringing a permanent marker into grocery store & changing them all to FEWER.

    The idea of all those little kids who come in with their parents who are just learning how to read, & still young enough to believe we know what we’re doing …. 🤦🏻‍♀️🫨🤷🏻

    2/13/2024 – Scram

    Scram bled eggs are available here from 7 am to 10 pm, 7 days a week.  And feel free to tell me to scram for thinking of this.

    2/13/24 SCRAM

    If you grew up with Sesame Street, you know Oscar the Grouch’s catch phrase was “SCRAM!”

    Of course SCRAM has left the vernacular, so the label just says “go away”. Less linguistically satisfying…

    And of course he’s far too cute as a plush doll… but special thanks to the wonderful staff at Kinderhaus toys in Clarendon for helping me out with this one.

    I was disappointed that there’s no nuclear reactor nearby for a photo.  My favorite “SCRAM” is the emergency shutdown for a nuclear reactor.

    If the reaction is going critical, they insert control rods to slow it down.  The acronym “Safety Control Rod Axe Man” is because in the first nuclear reactor pile ( U Chicago) a guy with an axe literally stood ready to cut a rope that would drop control rods into the chamber to prevent runaway fission.

    2/13/2024 this sign got cut off but after minors can’t be there after dark the last bullet was for the Canada Geese to SCRAM back to Canada.

    SCRAMble indoor playground (Falls Church, VA) looks like fun. Maybe they have an adult evening?

    #scavhunt – 2/13/2024 – Must be something about being named Chris, three groups of Canada Geese would not SCRAM not matter what we said as we rode north on the MVT along the Potomac.

    2/13/2024  Nothing says SCRAM like a No Soliciting sign at the end of the driveway.

    @aaron-bikes  I thought about that.  NRC has HQ in Rockville, but on a day like today, I wasn’t going far from the house.

    @CBGanimal, I used to joke that I played Angry Birds with the geese who lived in Oxen Hill Cove Park and would take their goslings for walks on the trail.
