As we driving the roads between Ohio and CA, we made quite a few detours (love our GPS) to find old towns and antique stores, swap meets and more. We were, as I mentioned, dismayed at so many empty towns with sale signs up everywhere.
We were surprised at how many trucks were on the highways. There were easily 10 trucks on the roads to every car. That must mean something. Goods are being moved from one place to another in high volume. We were wishing that the trucks had a sign on them telling what was inside. Long, long trains that appeared to be full also dotted the landscape every day. More goods being moved.
We always see odd signs in CA. Last year it was a 3 minute parking limit sign that caught our eye.
This year we we spotted this sign:
Is that a new verb for making a lot of noise? If the owner caught the mistake, he made the decision to go with it anyway. How do we know this? There were 14 more signs just like this in his parking lot.
We watched ths sign below being painted on our way to and from some errand running. It took the painters about an hour to complete. It was for Children's Hospital, I think and painted on the side of a liquor store. The ladder, with all of it's dripped paint was an art piece in itself.
The last sign I have to share with you is one I have never seen before anywhere else. Besides being puzzling, I have to say I do love the distressed quality of it.
It is a beautiful day. It has been lovely all week. I am going outside!
