Signs, Signs and more signs. It is impossible to live life without them. But, sometimes they can also add a smile or a giggle to our life. Then there are some that will have you laughing.
These have done all of the above for me. I hope they add some mirth to your day as well.
Last fall the firehouse across the street had an open house. It included an exhibit of restored antique fire engines. I saw this sign lying on the seat of the oldest engine. Since our town was founded by German immigrants and many of the townsfolk are of German heritage I assumed it was written in German and ask the owner of the fire truck to translate it. Turns out that it is written in a combination of German and English. Kind of a comic pig Latin. I hope that someone out their can translate it for me because even though it was read to me I did not write down the information and just can not remember it all, but it had me laughing at the time.

The moment I saw the window on this truck I thought of Mike and Frank who star on the TV show American Pickers on the History channel. Their pet phrase is that they will "Buy anything they can make a buck on."
For over a week, last fall, we watched the progress as a new concrete retaining wall, stairway and sidewalk were replaced on a house we passed on our nightly walks. Finally, the work was done and as we walked by I noticed this cheery yellow tile had been set into the cement wall beside the stairs leading up to the sidewalk.
