No Inspection

Pretty sure this former service station hasn’t offered inspections, or any other services for that matter, in a number of years.

(Another note to self:  Pay attention to reflections in window glass)

Rock of Ages

Advice found along a country road in Clay County, WV.

I normally would not be able to tolerate the blown-out white sky, but since this image is about the signage instead of scenery it didn’t bother me so much.

Fresh Eggs

I’m sure at one time it was possible to purchase fresh eggs at this establishment, but it would seem that those days are well behind us.

Follow Signs

Follow signs….a colossal “T”…..what does it all mean?

I never figured it out for certain, but after making this photograph I did have a sudden craving for a turkey sandwich.

Lucky Buffet

Lucky indeed!  Especially so for those keeping an eye on portion size.

Photographed while traveling on business in St. Mary’s, WV.

Pretty sure I wouldn’t have noticed such a nondescript and innocuous scene without the sign’s directive.

BTK Motors

An unfortunately named business seen while vacationing earlier this summer in Clearwater, FL. 

I thought I might come across Ted Bundy Accounting Services, or perhaps Jeffrey Dahmer Insurance Agency, but no it was only BTK Motors along this street.

No Swimming

I’m picturing bawling children, floaties cast aside, as their parents break the terrible news to them.  Perhaps baseball is permitted.

Things That Suck

I have my own personal list of things that suck, but it’s more along the lines of noticing my shoe is untied as I’m leaving an Exxon restroom.
