On the center of Long Island there's a place called "Half Way Motel."   I guess it's for illicit lovers who don't want to go ALL the way?    ???

Or for people in half-way houses who are on vacation?
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Or Perhaps the maids only half clean? Or the service is "Half- arsed?"   >:D

I wonder if it's related to a certain hotel in Alaska that my friend went to... Skinny wingadingdingy's Halfway Inn.

The "blog" of "unnecessary" quotation marks (http://quotation-marks.blogspot.com/) has been amusing me lately.  People send in pictures of signs with horrible misuse of quotes...

I once saw a sign for "fresh" fruit.  I didn't buy any.

I saw a sign yesterday that made me chuckle just a bit. On a local "Curves" sign:

                                         Breast Cancer Awareness
                                                    $25

On a church billboard:

COME TO OUR 6.30 HEALING SERVICE
YOU WON'T GET BETTER!

Regarding the misuse of punctuation.

The city of Dallas recently launched a campaign to get guys to pull up their low riding pants and stop showing their underwear.  The city spent thousands of taxpayer dollars on signs that read:

Pullem' Up.

Heck, they even have a rap song to go with it...http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15534306

I love this one.



I'm easily amused but another unintentionally funny one I saw was a sign, on the ver top of a lamp post,saying ''retirement home for the elderly'' with an arrow pointing to the heavens.

Finally this wasn't a sign, but when I was in the Dominican Repbulic when you borrowed a towel from the hotel, you received a piece of paper saying amongst many things, 'please rectum the towel before 8 pm on the day of rental'

We presumed, and hoped that they meant return.

We had a nearby church, whose sign announced their pastor was David Roth.


Wish I had taken a photo

at a quilt store in SLC, there is a parking sign that says

quilt shop parking only
all others will be cut into fat quarters. 

(an amount of fabric)

Cute page on the rather idiosyncratic Scottish road signs:

http://www.phouka.com/travel/other/signs/signs.html.

I always got a jolt out of the one that tells you "oncoming traffic in centre of road". It's always posted at a hairpin turn. So tell me, what do you do about the situation? Freeze and stay there forever?

It doesn't show my favourite one, though, the "Otter crossing" sign, with mama otter and babies.
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

While passing through KY over the weekend dh and I saw a sign that said "Stan Lee for Attorney General"  I wonder if he'll have  Spiderman, Dare Devil, and The Hulk help him enforce the law.   ;D
