Ghia Totem Pole

It looks a lot worse than what it did in 2007, the previous time I saw it - but at least it outlasted HW1 and the ex wife! :lol:

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
The cars keep going faster all the time
Bums still cry, "Hey buddy, have you got a dime?"
And the beat goes on, the beat goes on...

Looks like it's suffered from a veld fire since last you photographed it.
