An optimist is a driver who thinks that empty space at the curb won't have a hydrant beside it.

  2. Oh yes. Or like my partner one who believes (and is often right) that a very crowded parking lot will have a park just for him close to the door.

    1. We do Valerie, on every street and sometimes more than one if it is a very long street. My neighbor's across the street has one, the only one, on our street.
      They are used for the fire engines if there are any fires. You peaked my curiosity so I went to YouTube to find out how one works. You can see the video here:

  10. Hi Denise,
    Love the quote, over in England its a case of "the empty space will be without a parking meter".
    All the best,
    John
