The Gathering Place

How fast time flies sometimes. We are once again back to that day of the week when my blogging buddy Lesley ask us to share any interesting signs we have found.

I have selected several that I think you may enjoy.

This first sign is posted over the window in my sister's kitchen.

Nancy's house is truly the gathering place for our family. Almost every family holiday and celebration is held in this kitchen. The room was designed and added to Nancy's house for the sole purpose of providing perfect place where she can do the cooking and canning she enjoys, and share the fruits of her labor.

The little country church of St. Mary's in Moselle, Missouri is well known in our area for the roast beef dinners they serve at their annual Church picnic. I noticed the sign above written in magic marker on the post between the entrance and exit doors of the dining hall while waiting our turn to be served. I never could figure out the reason for the sign.

I happened to park next to this purple truck at the shop of our auto mechanic. I have no idea what the sign was meant to tell me and could not find anyone around who could explain it to me.

I am linking this post to Signs, Signs. A new meme hosted by Lesley of Southern Ontario, discovered . To check out what interesting signs others have posted this week click here.


  1. I love signs and that Hands off one is too funny. Have a great day.

  2. the "hands off" sign is mind boggling. great post.

  3. I like the sign in your sister's kitchen.
    And i might have thought the 'keeps hands off' sign might be to keep the post clean, but the writing rather defeats that purpose!

  4. The sign in the kitchen tells the whole story quite well. The “Hands Off” one is a hoot and a half. I cannot figure it out to save my souls. The one on the purple truck with the Olde School is making me think, too. Love your choices of signs for this week. Genie

  5. Why would they do that post one? It would just want to make you want to touch it owuldn't it?

    I love your sister's sign -- and the whole room really.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
