Signage Carnage

My mother said there would be days like this.

You find some cool wood. You paint it. You letter it. You get the farm guy with the strong arms to ram some metal posts into the dirt. You wire up the sign.

And all is good.

Until some semi-truck driver with a sign vendetta decides to back up, more than a certain task requires, murdering an innocent sign.

So I swallow my pride, clear up the old wood with help of a hard working niece spending a few days with us and burn the evidence.

 A new sign is created.

Lets just hope the next semi-driver has better backing up skills.


  1. Maybe the truck driver was trying to tell you something..... like 'buy some glue'!

  2. In the UK, all trucks make bleeping noises when they reverse, so that all the signs know to get out of the way.

  3. Too Funny Tom, we have those down under also.

  4. Was you new sign a left over from the lazy realtor? Nice new sign!

  5. If it had to happen, I'm glad it was a semi that was responsible rather than a minivan full of kids from Wisconsin:)) That would have been just my luck!

  6. Wow, that driver really wasn't a fan of your sign.

  7. Geez, that looks familiar. Due to crappy driving, we are out one really nice, handmade chicken mailbox.

    I feel your pain. The wind also took our farm sign. Grumble...
