Sneaky Sunday? “What the heck?” Wednesday

I’m trying to come up with a clever name for a repeating series I want to do on the blog.  Something that captures all the crazy stuff we see here.
I caught a little of this blog http://ourbviadventure.blogspot.com/ and she has a weekly feature called Signage Sunday.  While imitation is a form of flattery, my idea is a different spin on it.
We love living in the islands and being exposed to different “cultures”.  Sometimes you just have to shake your head at the things you see around these parts.  I want to post some of the things that are pretty commonplace in our neck of the woods that you wouldn’t be at all likely to see back in the States. Signs will be a part of it, but there are so many unusual things around here that I’d hate to not document!
I’m not terrific at it {yet}, but I am trying to perfect the art  of the stealthy cell phone pic.  See I pretend to be texting, but I am actually taking your picture….
Let’s start off with some trucks.  By no means are these the wildest ones we have see around here, but just an example of some trucks we typically see here.
My neighbors were moving.  This is what their movers did with their belongings.

They secured the load with two strings.  Bent the mattress in half and just wedged it in there.DSC_0943
Oh wait they are using an extension cord over the top.  See that yellow like going over {the open} box at the top?  You can’t find quality like that anywhere.
Next up Men in trucks!  This is a typical sight in the mornings and late afternoons.  Guys will pile in trucks and head to construction sites.  When the truck slows down, you better be prepared for guys to jump off- while the truck is still moving.

So what do you think? What should I call it?
Leave me a comment and let me know!
