Open. Or...

This is one of the many fire hydrants scattered around Eldorado (thank goodness - it gets extremely dry here in early summer), painted a good bright color - maybe, even, Orange, if one thinks of it as some kind of yellow/red melange. It's sitting with a kind of chunky, cheerful confidence. More problematic is the lettering on it, which may read Open - with a sense that fire personnel operate it from one particular angle. But there seems to be a letter beyond this... And it's not the manufacturer's name, because that's Waterous, from St Paul, Minnesota. Yes, I could go out with a flashlight, and find out, but I'm not likely to, tonight, our last night here - for one thing, we're off to Harry's, for a margarita and dinner.
