to sign own self be true –



except for now and except for this lane and except for this orange barrel and except for who knows how long?

  1. While driving through Maine last week (was that really only last week?) I was tickled (confused) by some signs on more than one occasion. It seems that Maine likes to have their freeways/highways overlap… a lot… and in some instances I was on 3 at once: #S, #W, and #N …. I can understand being on North and West (or South and West) roads at the same time… but, how was I heading both North and South at the same time????


  2. The “LOOK!” sign is actually very important, as I found out a few months ago. It says, “LOOK! Your combo number may have changed”, or something like that. After over 15 years of my favorite McDonalds meal being #4, they went and changed it to #5 without my prior consultation. It was only after I realized I had gotten served the wrong meal that I noticed the “LOOK!” sign, and saw they had monkeyed with the menu board. Guess it didn’t get my attention…


  3. I admit to being an “iced-coffee” junkie at “Mickey-D’s!” There’s one close to my house which was recently remodeled. The building is great, but they took a two-lane drive-thru down to one and paved it in such a way that nobody can navigate it in one try!

    As far as I’m concerned, they could have left the original drive-in lanes alone. They were great before!



  4. I can think of a few more signs to use but hey
    not going to mention any or I could get a spanking 😦
    Actually that could be worth it…

    Strike that, nooooo not that
    I mean the comment 🙂 Cheeky…

    Have a lovely rest of evening K S Beth 😉

  5. I love the “any lane any time,” paired with the barrel. Like a beach hat with a parka, just a magical ensemble that JK Rowling might have had a wizard wear. I’ve really enjoyed catching up on your blog. I especially liked your haiku and your three crying kids holding joy. That’s the yin and yang of children for sure. 🙂
