Strange Helpers

The Saturday Market people have these signs that they post along the side of Tyee coming into P.R. announcing the Saturday Market.  They had left them by the roadside last week to announce the market at the Arts and Music Festival, which was followed this weekend by the regular Saturday Market.  So, they were on the roadside for a couple of weeks.

But someone not associated with the market, apparently, drove down Tyee and uprooted each of the signs and returned them to the back yard of the Community Center.  Today, the Saturday Market people found the signs as the market was beginning.  Alas.  At first, there was some concern expressed about why someone felt a need to take them all down.  But after a bit of exchange, we decided that it was perhaps not vandalism or irritation but an offer of help.  As in, "Hey, you maybe forgot and left your signs up but I'm happy to help you by taking them down and returning them to your place of business."  The signs are doubtless in some kind of violation of county rules as to what signs can go where.  So, maybe: "Thanks.  Please repeat after each market session."

A nice day for the market today, although a little thin in attendance.  More Canadians, please.
