Reserved for wheelchairs

Reserved for wheelchairs
Isn't it silly - who would reserve parking bays for wheelchairs. Normally the people making use of the chairs need them to get around, so what would be the sense of such parking bays!? ;)

You may wonder why Cape Town Daily Photo is nearly a week behind on it's... well... daily photos. Kerry-Anne recently underwent a hip arthroscopy and has been slowly recovering the use of her left hip joint. So, you can imagine that we haven't been getting around quite as much as we'd otherwise like to have been; and your's truly has been playing the role of the devoted husband, providing for her every whim instead of keeping the daily photos coming. :)

In case you're concerned, the operation went pretty smoothly and I'm pleased to report that she's nicely on the mend and will soon be hopping, running and skipping.

If you're in the Northern Suburbs and on the hunt for a skilled orthopedic surgeon who specialises in hip joints, leave a comment here and I'll send you the doctors details - we'd certainly recommend his services.

    Thanks Deems, and thanks for the link to the origin of the symbol! As the article says, it was designed in 1968 and is currently maintained as an international standard under ISO 7001.

    On a side note, if I’m ever on “Who wants to be a millionaire” and this bit of info comes in handy – I’ll be sure to give you your fair share. :D

    *lol* When I read your commment on that — imho — well-known sign, I first thought my irony detector must be damaged. Now, I’m not sure. Is it? :D

    Ali – I’ve been looking for the irony and except for spotting a misplaced comma – I don’t see it.

    If the first sentence of the article were true, I guess that would be ironic – but help me out, where’s that (unintentional) irony? :)
