When I travel, I always come home with photos of signs, lots of photos of signs.  That's why it was difficult for me to decide on which one
to post.  I have posted several and put all but one behind the cut.

This is another New Orleans photo and it was taken on Canal Street a few years back.

This one was taken during a flood in my home town.  And, yes, stopping might be a good idea at that point unless you're in
a boat.  Also, there is another sign on the building in the back which is kind of amusing since if you have your car parked there
during the flood, you would appreciate towing, wouldn't you?

Here is the sign for my favorite drive-in that is about ten minutes from my house.  I love their grilled cheese
sandwiches and I really love this sign.

These signs were on the door of the little church at the Lanercost Priory in the UK.  We saw the sheep
but we didn't see the aerial eating cows.

This is a Mail Pouch sign on a barn in Ohio.

And this last one is my very favorite sign.


Nice set - LOL at the cows and sheep:)
Thank you. The cows and sheep signs are just too much fun, aren't they?
Interesting collection of signs. The one at the church is really most amusing.
The one at the church is a favorite of mine. I just enjoy signs in general. I started taking them as trip reminders to help get photos in order and wound up enjoying the signs just on their own.
I love the drive-in (I would pull in there to eat in a heartbeat) and the Mailpouch Tobacco barn. Makes me think of all the "See Rock City" barns and, at least here in Missouri, the Meramec Caverns barn signs. And the church signs... how funny! These are all terrific.
Thank you! I pulled off the highway for the MailPouch sign. I just had to have that one. I love signs painted on barns.
The food at the drive-in is brilliant! I would eat all my meals there if time and cash allowed. I have another odd church sign but it is one I took because the sign made me angry. It isn't funny like the one in this post. That cows warning sign is one of my favorites though. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

These are all fantastic, but the church signs are my favorite. Wouldn't want the sheep wandering in, now would we?
I'm glad you like them, and the sheep and cow signs are some of my favorites. We saw some sheep just outside of the church that day so they may well be trying to attend services. : )
Great signs! I especially love the warnings about the cows and sheep.
Thank you! As you may have guessed, those are my favorites too.
Oh yay! Someone else who collects signs! I love the first one, and the Lanercost Priory ones, in particular. I think these ones from Skye, taken a few years ago, might appeal to you.
Oh, another sign person! Thank you for sharing those. I love signs. I have tons of photos of them. I like taking them so I know where I was. lol I also love them. It is good to know I am not alone in this.
I think Lanercost have expanded their signage since I was there ten years ago. Maybe the cows have marauded a bit?
It could well be. I was only there the one time but they have some of my favorite signs. There is one that just says, "To the Ruins" that I love. I started to post it with these but feared I was getting carried away. LOL
What a fun post!

This was my favorite sign from our century floods in 2007:

Great shots, and great answers to the prompt. The aerial-eating cows are my favourites, and I love your favourite, too. I've never been to Scotland myself (yet), but it's very high on my priority list.
Oh, that's many great signs. :)
