Signs, Signs....

I bought this US Mail sign some time ago, when I was still working for the Postal Service. I keep it right by the little box we use in the house to hold our outgoing letters:
I picked up this one at the great estate sale, I just thought it was cool. I put it in the bathroom:
My husband is a retired railroad man, and he collects all kinds of RR stuff. This sign is just one example:
And this last one? Well, YEARS ago, I was out on a drive with the man I was dating at the time. We were over by Cherry Lake someplace - I believe on Cherry Creek Road. We stopped by a bridge that ran over the creek to eat our lunch. Logging trucks were coming down this hill on the curvy road at a ridiculous and dangerous speed. We saw this sign up around the curve, and I said "It should say hauling ass!" Well...he just happened to have some black electrical tape in his truck - so, before we left, it DID!
Please excuse my language, but I thought it was hilarious. I'm glad he had his camera with him.

I totally love that sign...we have some log haulers in northern Wisconsin do the same thing! I have no idea how they would even stop if they had to !!!

Have a great week!

I, for one, think the word "ass" never ceases to be funny. We were watching the very awesome "Planet Earth" last night on Discovery, and on it was a herd of Wild Ass. When the narrator said those words, we all laughed until we cried, and the jokes never stopped all night - my kids were quick to point out that hey, they could say "ass" because we were talking about the animals on TV! It was pretty hilarious, I must say.
