sign: A sign of the times? - 07/13/13 11:58 PM

I have been looking at more and more jobs with these sorts of signs in the window, not For Sale signs on the lawn. Many of the homes are bank owned, foreclosures and other special situations. The type of sale doesn’t have too much of an effect on me and the work we do.
As a general rule the home are in need of some serious repairs; dry rot, water damage, and deferred maintenance are common place in this properties. If we are called early enough, we can quickly get the home ready for move in or rental.

There was a small market just off the freeway that we saw and had to stop for a drink. Up in the Northern most section of California, you don’t get to see a lot of businesses and especially the larger chain stores and markets. You do get to see some unique characteristics in design and form.
Check out this large sign on the side of the building.

Who Flies Over a Gun Club?

While hanging out over in Angels Camp on Highway 49 in Calaveras County, I came across this sign posted on the power pole. The pole was located near the Fairgrounds in Calaveras County; “Frogtown” as the locals call it.

You remember Mark Twain writing about the jumping frogs of Calaveras right?
The whole area has frogs as a theme, Mark Twain appears to have put the county on the map.

This still doesn't explain the sign.

sign: This is your spelling on drugs! - Photo Fun - 07/05/12 10:36 PM

This is not a post about my beliefs on the Medical Marijuana issue; it is more of a thought provoking spelling error. I was driving through a parking lot of a commercial shopping strip and saw this sign. The business that moved out is a Marijuana Dispensary; it just made me think.
This is your spelling on drugs!

 I saw your sign on the side of the road - Really?


I got a call from someone looking for a general contractor today; she said she saw my sign on the side of the road. The sign was in Sacramento; she couldn’t remember the street but in was in the Arden area. Funny, I don’t have any signs in Sacramento on any street.
If I were going to have a sign in Sacramento, maybe it would look like this.
I hope that I can help her with her situation, regardless of how she found me!

While out of town at an Assembly, I needed to streatch my legs so I went for a walk in the area. I came across this small sign shop.
I would have thought that a sign shop would have put a little more effort into creating a better sign for there business.

Okay so the boys and I were walking along and notice the bus stop sign, and couldn't let it get by without a snapshot. There was some confusion as to what the sign really meant. Maybe if we just hung around for a while the smart part would come to us.
