Friday My Town Shoot Out - Signs

Si chose this week's topic - interesting or amusing signs. Can't believe I actually spent a week wishing there were more signs! And one day I chased a maintenance vehicle for about 10 miles up the highway before giving in and letting that shot get away.

Nailed to a tree


I just had to go home and look up that website.


New owners have given this cafe a facelift
and a new name (they do make wicked coffee!)



Not far away, down at the town centre, is this sign.

I was a passenger the day my daughter and I followed this truck.


Finally, a couple of beer ads. Billboards advertising Tui beer are seen throughout the country. The black background and the words "yeah, right" never change, but the wording is updated regularly to reflect current issues.

  5. That truck: hahaha! So, do you think the driver has been ticketed multiple times and decided to put that sign on the back? Or is it a public service message from the police department?

  6. I like the Tui ads, makes me continue to wish for the resurrection of Burma Shave style road signs.

  8. Guess I'll have to look up trialbytrickery.com too. Intriguing! The semi is my favorite. We have many unmarked police cars in my town, so that was pretty funny to me.

  13. Great photos. That truck is so awesome. In the states, a lot of trucks have signs that read, 'How's my driving?" I wish they would switch over to those signs. I get stopped all the time but the police are pretty good to me.

    Here, we even have unmarked pick-up trucks, as well as cars.

    I suggest that everyone click on the truck photo and read what is under it.

    I would like to sail away on that boat after visiting the cafe.

  14. Nice assortment of signs! Of course nailing a sign to a tree while supporting the green movement is the best, once you stop to think about it!
