Roadside Objects

Today John and I were doing errands.  As he was driving along, I noticed the retread of a tire alongside the road.  About two feet from that, on the shoulder of the road, was a goose laying an egg!  

A little farther along we came upon a large wooden sign.  One of those homemade signs that say something like "Six ears of corn for a dollar".  Only you couldn't tell what it said because it had been nailed on upside down!

The next thing that I saw that I thought was kind of curious was a road sign that said "Bridge May Be Icy".  Wow, interesting since it was 91 degrees outside.  Everytime I see that sign I chuckle.

I also saw several signs that read "DUI - you can't afford it".  To me that is a bizarre campaign.  Is money really going to stop somebody from drinking too much?  If something was going to stop them, I would think it would be not wanting to kill themself or somebody else, not worrying about saving a few bucks.

I also saw a sign that said "Falling Rocks".  On the shoulder of the road were lots of rocks that had fallen.  Gee, I thought, they are warning you that a rock might fall on you.  Like, what are you supposed to do if you see it coming?  Sure enough, I saw one really HUGE rock that had made it down into the middle of the road at an earlier time.  We straddled it and drove on.  I am glad it hadn't fallen when we had been driving by.

I also saw three Deer Crossing Signs.  I was hoping to see a deer, but it is probably good that I didn't.  If it had jumped out in front of the car it would have been a bad thing for us all...

    I always see a sign that says beware of aggresive drivers, now what's up with that? Like they own the road and I have to get out of their way! We also have deer signs, on this one road the deer cross at the sign all the time, I wonder if they can read? Have a good day.

  3. I loved the title to this entry, as well as the goose laying an egg - you should've had my El Cheapo camera LOL  Jan and Sierra
