I like odd street, road, or highway names. Up until now, my favorite one I ever saw was Wamble Road, off Highway 120 on the way to Yosemite from San Jose. Every time we passed the sign marking Wamble Road, my mind would start nattering, “Wamble Woad! Wamble Woad! I’m Elmer Fudd, and I live on Wamble Woad.” I don’t for the life of me see how anybody could ever say it any other way, and that’s where I thought I’d really like to live.
This week, my husband and I were on our way to Sequoia, and I saw something better! Out in the Central Valley, we passed a sign that said “Road 15 3/4.” How great is that? I’d really like to live there.
