Here a Sign, There a Sign

I am sure you know the verse to Old MacDonald Had a Farm. Those words could be easily changed to reflect how some folks feel about signs, on occasion.
With a sign here
And a sign there
Here a sign, there a sign
Everywhere a sign, sign
Heck, signs are everywhere. There is almost no limit to where you will find a sign and what it will tell you.

I found this sign on the wall in the snack bar of a dime store (yes there is still a old fashion 1960's style dime store alive and well) in Santa Fe, New Mexico a couple years ago. Only problem was the sign lied. That dime store was not always open and the refills hadn't been free for years.

You don't often find a sign that is meant to be sat on, but, that is the case with this chair. I also found this chair along with three mates outside a shop in Santa Fe.

I found this sign in a small town in Arkansas. It was very tall and stood above the rooftop of the strip mall where it was placed. The dog was repeated on the other side and there were no words anywhere on the sign poles. Perhaps, it was not finished? Or, perhaps the folks in that small town knew what it was for without any words. There was a pet grooming business located in that small shopping plaza.

Just in time for today's post I received the following slide show of Church signs in my e-mail. It must have been divine providence sending me a message, so I am attaching them for you to enjoy. The slide show is set to music and the song is entitled (what else) Signs.

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


  1. I notice your husband is not sitting in the bored husband chair.

  2. Those GodTube signs were endlessly amusing!
    I always chuckle at the comfy chairs outside womens' fitting rooms - though they are not generally labelled, we all know for whom they are intended.

  3. Girl, you have been collecting signs for a while!! I thought I had a good collection, but i'll never catch up to you. Nice. I have to come back to watch the video -- my 'puter is slow todayo.

  4. Hahahaha I like that blue bored husband chair, super cool!!


  5. Those are really cute and you know how I love signs.

  6. Love your sign collection, the chair is wonderful! But the church sign video gets my vote today, so many funny signs!


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.
