” A good laugh is sunshine in the home. ”
When I am out shopping at all those little Arizona shops I always run across so many signs. Thought it would be a fun post to share with you all some of what I have seen over the years. I haven’t been out shopping for entertainment since the Red Monster came out into our world. These are all photos in my archives from past trips to those little shops around my home state. With the way things have been happening so fast with movies and books being altered and removed I believe some of these signs may well be on the list as well if things keep going the way they are. It is like we are all afraid to laugh, to have humor or to have deep conversations about those subjects that we used to be able to speak about freely. We are starting to be afraid of our freedom of speech in our country.
Anyway, I hope none of these signs and little bits of history from these past years of me out shopping offend anyone. Just me laughing at the silliness of signs all around in our environments. Signs tell a little bit about our past and future. I have chosen to leave out the metal signs that have anything to do with weapons. Here in Arizona, we even have those types of signs.
I guess what I am trying to write here is that, I am sharing a little bit of history here in a way and that is it. It is just recording something that at one time existed and very well may be still hanging up where I took these photos. Most of these signs were for sale, maybe some were even purchased. This is my trigger warning, there may be some signs that might upset you…so skip this post. I just don’t know anymore with what is or isn’t offensive. Hope you have fun with this shopping trip from the past. I will be very happy when I feel comfortable enough to go shopping for entertainment again, I am still too afraid right now to do that.
This sign for some reason reminds me of an uncle I had as a child. He has since passed on but he had many girlfriends and wives over the years in his younger days. This would have been a perfect sign for him.
I almost bought this sign for a friend of mine. She had the prettiest horse around and she was always working with them.
I want a baby pig. They are so cute.
I think this could be said of all fishermen. How many times have we all heard about those giant fish that got away.
A whole wall of these would look so cool in a child’s room, or even a nursery. I like to decorate in unusual ways.
Not an actual sign but a really cool image of one that someone painted on a wall. Don’t you just love murals.
Okay, this may trigger some of you and again, it was one of those photos I questioned whether or not to share ,even though I think it is so funny. Hey, it made me laugh when I was walking outside this shop window.Not technically a sign but hanging up outside a shop window I had to get a photo. I have cousins who hate our president and I mean with a passion and several others who love him. This is just our country right now. So sad too, it used to be everyone got along and could talk about politics but now it seems like we are hanging by a thread with a civil war. I pray this never happen. Most people are good hearted and they want what everyone else wants in life…a peaceful, healthy and happy life.There are many people in the middle some where, only wanting the things that keep their lives as comfortable as possible. A good education for their children, food on the table and if sick then health care to heal them.That is all I will say about this very touchy subject.Again, we are loosing our sense of humor and we are loosing our courage to speak as well.I have chosen to share this photo, it can be enjoyed by both sides I believe. This would be the perfect gift for the holidays for that reason alone… for humor only please. What you all do with your gifted socks is up to you. And that is why this would be the perfect gift to break some tension during the holidays with family.
This can also be a sign that both sides can enjoy. Lots of broken families out there. Lots of scapegoats and Golden children situations. Whether you have a loving mom or not, everyone knows, that if Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
Some humor for what my Nana used to call the change or just a summer in Phoenix.
And since we are on the subject of Nana…
Another sign I almost didn’t share. So afraid to offend now days. This is actually kind of cute for those wiener dog owners out there. I used to have a couple friends who owned wiener dogs.
We do need more humor in our lives. I rather see a sign like this at a business then those scary pandemic signs that are everywhere now. So many steps now to shopping.
A fun place to eat yummy bar-b sandwiches. I am not getting anything for sharing this giant mural and sign outside a restaurant, it really is good food.
They had all kinds of signs in here.
Having all these signs to read makes it a fun place to eat.
A couple here I liked. The hippies and rattlesnake sign.
That’s it. Do you guys ever come across interesting sign when out in the world? I would love to hear about some of your favorites that you have come across. Happy shopping adventures everyone. Stay safe out there.
