is what the sign stated*, and so, while I drove south toward a vacation, the Yard Man obediently did some road work.  While he was saying into his phone, "This week I could use fifty bunches of your candy-stripe beets, and twenty dozen of those heirloom tomatoes," I was thinking to myself, "This week I could use great piles of those fabulous clouds, and some glorious blue sky.  Oh, and I'd definitely like some beach!" 
Fortunately, there was a sign a little further along that said End of Road Work  and the Yard Man could put away his phone, and stop his work of ordering for Oasis (the food co-op where he's co-manager).

After a couple more hours had elapsed (followed by more hours) and then several more hours, we arrived at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, where (I'm pleased to say) I immediately began taking delivery of my order! 

 *Between the two of us, the Yard Man
and I strove to obey all the road signs we encountered. But I'm sorry to say, we were stymied by this one that said BUMP!

Now that is one astounding photograph. Makes me think of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Thanks, sk. I was astounded when I saw it! Haven't seen any meatballs yet.
