Very Interesting Signs

A friend sent me these pictures today of signs posted in Africa. I don't know exactly where someone could find these signs, but some of them are pretty funny. I thought I'd share them.

It hurts just reading this sign. Ouch!     
Very interesting Lanterns

Pretty sure I'll pass on this restaurant

I think the boneless bananas are more expensive

This policy actually makes sense to me 

Enough Said

Absolutely no drinking and driving

Tax dollars hard at work

I actually like this one

I think this is very good advice

Alrighty Then

Can you hear me now?

Wow, this is really lazy

Never really thought about it this way

You won't find this at Krogers

No sign required!

Now you know how I spend my time. Hope you got a good laugh from this pictures.

Robby is a Robin who has teamed up with his brother Ricky and some other birds, namely the perky Sparrow family, a group of Mourning Doves and Benny the Blackbird. In this story, the group of life-long feathery friends decided to fly south to Florida for the winter.
Along the way, Joy, the youngest Sparrow, strays from the flock and lands in the backyard of Hershey, a very determined and hungry cat. Her parents and some of the other birds form a search party and hope they find her before it’s too late.
The birds continue on their journey, only to discover their winter home has been destroyed by a hurricane. There’s no food and nowhere to build a nest. The little flock is hungry and exhausted. Should the birds stay and hope for the best? Or should they use their last energy to carry on flying west to Arizona?

Adventures of Abygail

In the summertime, people from Phoenix love to get away from the heat and drive north. While the temperature in Phoenix is 110 degrees or hotter, it may only be 90 degrees in Payson or Flagstaff. 

Abby is learning at a very young age (2 months old) to retreat north to cool herself off. This past weekend Abygail went on her very first camping trip. Here's an update on Abby roughing it!

Abby spent most of her time up north making sure her parental units behaved themselves so she doesn't have to worry about sharing her room with another baby just yet. Abby did an amazing job keeping everyone safe and warm.

here's Abby kicking back to rest.

The thin air sure makes me sleepy.

Guy Stuff

Every now and then I decide to go off script and blog about something other than children, grandchildren and books. When I found these pictures on Pinterest, I knew had to share them.

How would you like to have your staff meetings in this conference room? If you've been in some of the meetings I've been in, probably not!

This one reminds me of the cement pond the Beverly Hillbillies used on their show. Now, all we need is Ellie May.

There is nothing cozier than a four-poster, propane tank bed made from the grill of a GMC Truck. Awesome!

What truck driver wouldn't want this in their man cave?

An incredible room with three very impressive muscle toys. The room is beautiful but the furnishings make the room! 

How's this for the perfect coffee table. I'd be proud to sit a beverage on the top of this table!
