A Word A Week Photograph Challenge: Sign

Once a week Sue dips into her old English Oxford dictionary and picks a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph, poem, story – whatever the genre you like best to describe of what that word means to you.

I had been wondering for a while if or how I would ever be able to use this particular photo. It still makes me laugh. It was early 1976, I was moving from Kentucky to Arizona — in an MG Midget convertible! Everything I was taking with me was stuffed into the tiny two-seater and strapped to the little luggage rack on the back. Yep, didn’t have much! But when I saw this sign, I had to have a picture of it. I can’t even remember what kind of cheap little camera I had then. The colors (along with the picture) are fading. I suppose if some day I learn a program like Photoshop I can do something with it!

The following photo was taken not too long ago on a visit to Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida. This sign was on the side of one of the buildings and it really caught my eye. Talk about a memory rush!!



The video, I believe, speaks for itself. It’s the mood I’m in while putting this together.  Gee, I wonder why! I won’t answer that here; that’s another music video!

    That eat at Steve’s sign is hysterical! Love it! ⭐
    [off topic – I believe you were kind enough to translate some Japanese for me a long time ago. Is it possible for you to do the same with the propaganda leaflet I put in my last post?}

    • I agree about that sign! Gosh, GP, I’m afraid it wasn’t me that translated for you. I wish I could help. All the translation I get is from Google on foreign blogs. I hope you find who did the translation before.

    That first one is such a classic! I’m so glad you kept it. All your stuff in that little car… what an adventure.
