Merci by Bryce, SOMBREROED SEPTANINJA

INSTRUCTIONS: Whilst in Scotland, I couldn't help but notice that along the roadway, there were signs posted, simply saying, "Thank You". These signs were as regular as stop signs, or speed limit signs.
I asked my grandfather,"why are there Thank You signs posted?"
He replied,"Well, it's thanking us for driving safely. Also, if you can't read the sign, you're driving too fast."
He may have been telling the truth, but I preferred to interpret the sign at face value, like a bumper sticker that says, "Don't be a jerk." Just "Thank You".


Make a Thank You sign, and post it appropriately.
Thank you.

So, we figured we'd go to building N of St. Mary's Hospital, San Francisco.
It's where the McAuley Institute, a teen residential psyche ward is. Learned about it when I was researching mental hospitals for a story. (http://www.stmarysmedicalcenter.org/Medical_Services/198742)
Figured the staff might want to know people care they're helping
and the kids might want to know they've done something right.

The ominous, taboo stretch up to the building proper.

I was just talking to some staff at a teen residential psyche ward yesterday. They are dedicated folks with a tough job. You picked a good group to thank.
