Just a little cross the border humor to brighten your first Monday of 2017! (2017? When did that happen? Wait a minute … it can’t be that already, can it?)

Year Out, Year In. Donald Trump in Mexico – lifelessons – by Judy Dykstra-Brown


As I drove to town the last day of 2016, this was the sight I was met with.  I couldn’t stop then as I was in a hurry, but on the way home I stopped and snapped these photos.  If you click on the first one, it will enlarge and you can see the captions.
