My road sign is gone, what? At first, I thought it was stolen, for the wood, but perhaps the garbage men ripped it out of the tree, accidentally? I do hang my trash there Fridays, up high by the sign, so the dogs don’t get to it. And it was Friday. But, either way, it did me a favor. The sign said, “Las Vegas, ” so named by the man here who bought it. But, actually, all the old neighbors say it was called, “Sabila,” named after all the aloe and agave all over the land. Much nicer name, don’t you think?
