Pacific Grove, California:
“No tickets for tourists.”

Aw, c’mon… real ones !

The Mounties always get their man…

I opened the door, and look who I found. Damn I’m good

Carved into the lintel of the white columned City Hall of Marks, MS (usually vying for the most impoverished county in the US):

Of course, the real motto of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is “Maintiens le Droit”, which I have heard most often interpreted as “Uphold the Right (or Law)”.

The buffalo head which appears on the Mountie cap badge is in reference to their first assignment in 1873-74, which was to move onto the prairies and squash the illegal liquor trade from the US, and bring law and order to what was then the North-West Territory.

Visit the Mounties: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/

and visit the gift shop http://www.rcmpmuseum.com/giftshop/index.html where you can buy a used shoulder patch actually worn by a Mountie for $1.32 (seems kind of tacky to me, but…)

Toronto, Canada:
