I call this Ramada Sign, "The Leaning Tower Of McFarland". It's located right behind the PNC Bank on the corner of McFarland and Skyland. Two weeks and a half weeks ago I noticed it leaning forward, and I took the picture above. I publicly expressed my concerns about it being unsafe, and even blogged about it. In case you missed it, you can read my thoughts right HERE

Well, apparently somebody reads this blog! Because today, when I ran to the PNC to cover some potentially bouncing checks, I saw a crew working on "The Leaning Tower Of McFarland", and I am proud  to say that it is no longer leaning. The Ramada Sign is standing nice and straight again! Check out these pics...

Indeed, the sign is fixed! That means we no longer have to worry about it falling across McFarland and crashing into a motorist, or into the PNC Bank and injuring their customers, or worse yet, falling across the street and wiping out the Taco Bell....because we are all now SAFE! All because somebody important read THIS blog.

To which end, I'd like to say that I am truly honored, humbled, and flattered. I'm glad that I was able to make a difference...You're Welcome.

Think I'll go celebrate today, by dining in at Taco Bell with a Double Cheesy Gordita Crunch Box, and not worry about a Ramada Inn sign taking me out! :-)
