There really is an overabundance of good, bad and ugly in Lindsay. As I travel the streets and back roads of our great town, it is the total disregard for others sharing space that drives me to give those responsible the recognition they deserve. It is the Ugly that seems to jump out at me and get under my skin more so then the other categories and it appears that I can’t get off this block. Perhaps I need to move on and search out the good….let it go Mark…they just don’t get it. But I can’t let go and ignore what jumps out at me, be it Good, Bad and especially Ugly.
For the week ending July 24th 2009 the Lindsay Good, Bad and UGLY Award will be shared by two local businesses Sylvestres and Yardys for an outstanding display of… for no better word….SHIT! I needed to throw on my wide angle lens so that you could experience this display of competition between these two adjoining stores. Even then I was unable to get in the boat and other piles of rubbish that were hidden from view by the semi trailers that have become fixtures of the properties. For the first time since the awards inception we have a tie. Judges decision was based on the perceived individual weight of the rubbish on each property, the creative use of material and overall curb appeal. Both properties back onto one of the largest of Lindsay’s municipal parking lots. A very welcome site for first time visitors to our community.
Unfortunately only one of the businesses can accept the gift certificate….first come first serve. Congratulations….truck on!
