This is a real sign of the times. I originally took this picture for the meme called Watery Wednesday, but when I read what it said on the window I realized you see this sign everywhere these days - empty stores for lease.
Another sign of the times, a much happier one, is that people are taking much better care of their pets nowadays. You rarely see a dog chained up in a yard anymore. People spend billions of dollars on their pets every year. Due to this new respect for animals, and because of the poker craze, more Greyhound race tracks have closed their doors this past year. The numbers are dwindling and this is a wonderful thing! What's not so wonderful for the dogs is that thousands of them no longer have homes, such as they were. Good news for you - they're up for adoption. If you want to know more about these wonderful pets you can e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks. Hope your signs of the times are good ones. Peace.
