Shoes on a Wire

DSC_0036.JPGI don’t know why five pairs of shoes laced together hang from electrical wires over a nice residential street in Sacramento. The reasons given on the internet why shoes hang from wires range from the dark side (drug territory markings) to the expected (teenage pranks). Given that toilet paper is hanging from nearby trees, I’ll go with the mischief factor. I was surprised to read that people have been throwing shoes over wires for nearly 40 years.
