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!

Now that takes us back to our youth doesn’t it?. I love the first one. Perhaps not the greatest ad for a restaurant. 🙂
I keep telling myself it had to be a joke. Although it definitely was an attention grabber! 🙂
So funny. Have to wonder if it was done on purpose. Either way hilarious? 🙂
A nice piece of history, that first one! 🙂
I remember pre-interstate travel and now I miss it! 😉
So very cool. Your first shot does take me way back in time.
Thanks, Cee! 🙂
Linda,Dear ! What gorgeous signs you have employed to present for the Challenge ! I like the vintage feeling of the first one and the delightful colours and drawings of the second.There is a lovely antithesis between the two! Besides,I always appreciate the You Tube links you usually include and I am listening to them while commentig. Love and hugs ,Doda xxx 🙂
Thank you so much, Doda! I had a tough time deciding between the two then decided, why decide! LOL! Glad you enjoyed the music. I always loved that song — I even had that album! Love and hugs back to ya! 🙂
It definitely was that! Makes me wonder if any of those old back roads still contain any little jewels like that. Hmmm. Probably not anymore in this day and age.
How fun. 🙂
That it is most definitely! 😉

Bwahahahah don’t feel young hahaha…funny I always felt older anyway…I mean I am young at heart but I have always seemed to prefer the company of older people…I always say I was born in the wrong time frame…kind of fancy I should have been born in the 20’s or 30’s…odd that 😉 xxx
Funny, I always felt younger! And young at heart! hee hee! I might have grown up in the 50s and 60s but I adore the movies from the 30s and 40s! 😀

Oh, Simi, you are just too sweet!! I am so glad you enjoy it! That makes my day! Many hugs to you, dear! 🙂 ❤

[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.
The only thing I miss is the car! 😉
