Confession: There have been times that I’ve spent so much time decorating my classroom for the new year that I ended up behind in planning my lessons.
It all got done, of course, but only by taking it home to finish. (The room, of course, I couldn’t take home with me, but probably would’ve if I could’ve.)
Well, I can’t live that way anymore, see.
So today, my first day back in my classroom, I spent time arranging furniture and organizing my desk, clearing out the junk.
But I didn’t draw a brand-new poster for outside my door as usual.
Instead, I took the wrinkled one that I made last year and cut out the words.
It still looks pretty cool, and no one will notice the difference.
A small step but it’s something. :P
I’ve always loved this old sign on North Main Street, especially the curved arrow!
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen it lit, though. I wonder if it still works.
It reminds me of the Northside Video sign, but it has to be much older.
Someone still lives in the house next door (with those deer statues..), but the lot has been empty for some time now.
So we were sitting at the light, heading home this evening with some Sonic for dinner, and I happened to check out the sign…
Um…sideways??? How did the birds handle that???
I just managed to get this picture before the light changed.
In case you can’t see, here’s a closeup:
I had to drive around the block a few times before I found a good spot near Zinc this afternoon after school. It was really weird…Cars everywhere downtown…
And — whew! — you can just see the heat of the day. TG4AC!
I felt so bad about posting this one that I had to cover the name of this church and pastor. Yes, I agree wholeheartedly with the meaning behind this sign. But I think whoever handles the signage needs a grammar checker. :(
Not sure to which “way” they’re referring, but the sign’s an excellent hand-drawn example of a text-filled shape.
Cool old neon sign! Not as old as it seems, though. The building was a grocery store way back when I was a little girl. I’m not sure when the video store opened (I’m thinking in the late ’80s), but it’s been closed for some time.
