It’s a sign

I’ll admit, I have a thing for signs.

This one still makes me laugh.

I even kinda collect them.

My aunt gave me this book.

I can’t pass up a good chuckle when I see burnt out letters.

This one is currently down the street.

And we found this one at the coffee shop in Lyons this weekend (click to enlarge).  I can’t quite tell what it means but I do believe it is similar to these rocks

Seems like something might have gotten a little lost in translation on these hand dryer directions.  How exactly do you STAR operation?

This next one is actually a print but I think it would make  a good sign.

I realize this post doesn’t fit any of my proposed eight I vowed to stick to in the next eight school days.  So sue me.  I had a bit of an extra long day at school since we had the 4th grade music program today.  Lots of this…

and it was cool.

Speaking of cool – it is May 11th and currently snowing buckets outside.  I don’t think I have ever seen that happen in my life.  Sure, a light frost, etc. but I am so glad I kept my newly potted geraniums in the kitchen this week because they are apparently calling for 3-7 inches of the white stuff.  Pure craziness I tell ya, especially considering we are supposed to have our rescheduled crazy fun field day on Thursday.  Colorado weather at its finest!

      Is this really true?

    Jen, I love the signs! I, too, love signs although I have never started a collection. The first pic you posted reminded me of one Matt saw and took a picture of near Oak Park mall. It was Shoe Carnival, but the “s” in shoe was out. Oops! 🙂 Hope the snow melts soon!!

      That is classic. I had a little girl in second grade today that spelled the word “hotel” on her project – except when she sounded it out, she wrote “HOETEL”. Maybe they should get together with “(s)hoe” carnival…Tooooooooo funny!

    Dad swore when the “P” was burned out on one of their store’s Price Chopper signs they sold more rice. It must have been subliminal. Mom

    P.S. If you want your handmade xylophone, it’s still in the basement.
