It's a sign....

I've been collecting pictures of signs I encounter on my travels.

Time to share.

Awww, how endeering.... 
(Belfast, Maine)


Redundancy?

No spell check in Florida...


I don't even think spell check could rescue this one.  ????


Good Message.


If you P in the lake, the Sopranos will be notified and they will get their stuff in here.


There was an old  bike leaning against that tree. What a lucky gal.


I think this was in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Tough place.
They don't even need the MOB closet.

The best one I saw this summer was outside of Meredith, New Hampshire at a motel.
We should have turned around to photograph it, and Mr. Downeastdoingstuff asked me if he should, but in a blogger lapse I said no.
This is what it said:

COME STAY WITH US
CLEAN ROOMS
HEATED POO

When your 'L' falls off, it's bad for business methinks.

Looks like somebody did more than "P" in the pool.

I love catching those, um, unusual signs. Wish we had a camera when we saw this billboard long ago:
Make a friend at a Holiday Inn!

And this one in London:
Nothing sucks like an Electrolux

Love the signs. I remember as a kid giggling about the swimming pool signs in Quebec. They say "piscine" which we read as "piss in!"

I love signs too - and collect them as well (photos of them). One of my favorites was "Mary's Secret Salon" - if it is a secret, why is she making a sign? And another, for a restaurant -"Great Food, Lousy Service" - another restaurant "Sorry, Open" I love the sense of humor in signs - as well as the typos - your last one made me laugh outloud.

Thanks, Elenka! Love them. And remember---I won't swim in your toilet if you won't pee in my pool.

great job, you are so clever. I like the signs on the trash barrels at the rest areas in Maine..."barrel picking ia bad for your health". Like we need to be told???
Hugs, Kathleen
