A Sure Sign of the Apocalypse

A Sure Sign of the Apocalypse

You know? The unexpected things that cross your path when you’re just bumming around really make a ride enjoyable.

Unfortunately, trying to take a picture of one of these signs is a near impossibility with your phone. It’s creates all sorts of weird disturbance in the video/photo – but I think you can see it well enough. The whole message read: “Watch for – Heavy Traffic – Snake Hunt Sat/Sun.”

Snake Hunt! A traffic jam causing snake hunt.

In my entire life I have never heard of a town-organized snake hunting event let alone one that would cause a traffic jam. Seriously? That town must be infested. Which is mildly terrifying. Though terrifying and mildly probably don’t mix, do they?

Just goes to show ya, there is always something new to experience. Though hunting snakes is very low on my To Do list.

The Only Person You Should Try To Be Better Than

The Only Person You Should Try To Be Better Than

I have a predilection for feel-good sayings on signs when I see them. They’ve got just the right amount of corny positivity for me. More than that I suspect it’s some weird mental tick that makes me think that I’m supposed to see their message. Signs, fortune cookies, unlikely coincidences… the universe is talking to me! The universe. Talking to me. Riiiiiiight.

Anyway, I really like this message I saw in Pennsylvania: The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday. There are probably a few others but I’m not going to quibble over the finer points and ruin the sentiment.

And I also find it pretty funny to imagine a swarm of termites eating the entire church save for the steeple in 30 seconds flat 🙂

Route 66 Amboy, California – Roy’s Cafe

Route 66 Amboy, California – Roy’s Cafe

When something from popular culture becomes a fixture in my mind, often when I visit such a place I don’t know how to react. Almost like standing around at a party and not knowing what to do with your hands. The sight isn’t a surprise. You’ve seen it a million times. But even so, there is a sparkle that comes from seeing something with your own eyes.

How many times have my eyes gazed over photos of the Roy’s sign? Countless, it seemed.

As it appeared in the distance, a smile danced across my face. “There it is!” I thought. And it was gorgeous.

Love Wins and Other Streetart Wisdom

Love Wins and Other Streetart Wisdom

What someone chooses to say publicly in paint fascinates me. I feel similarly about bumper stickers. You might only have one shot at getting the attention of someone’s eyeballs and this is what you want them to know.

My biggest takeaway from this little shack is LOVE WINS. I want that to be true more than anything. But now I’m being told to question it, so…? I don’t think I like the mixed messages here.

That’s better 🙂

On the quality neighborhood stencil over the B, do you see a sunshine or a taco?
