Friday is finally here. I know that I'm not the only one excited that today is Friday for more reasons that one. Anyway, Crisfield Patty and I agreed to post local signs that we thought were eye catching, cute or just personified our home towns. I always have my camera with me these days and you'd be surprised what you will find if you keep your eyes open. Here goes........
Salvation Taxi. Perhaps you get a sermon on your way home??
Golden's On The Square. Prince and I eat here so often that it's like Cheer's. Everybody knows our name. Finer people you would never meet and the food is delicious as well.
A new resturant that is being remodeled going towards exit 41 on Highway 29. It used to be a barbeque place now it's going to be a mexican resturant. I think they made excellent use of the pig!!
PawPaw's Diner: Food with attitude at a low, low price. Now that's what I like.
An old Sinclair HC gasoline sign. I actually remember these. Man oh man, that makes me feel kind of old.
Golden Beauty Salon off the square going into town. Not just beauty yall.....GOLDEN Beauty. You gotta love that!
A picture in one of our local banks that caught my eye. Awesome.
A little dirt bike that I saw for sale off of Roscoe Road. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's itty bitty......like for a 6 year old and it's just darling.
Harwell, Brown and Harwell Attorneys and Owens Properties. Some of my favorite people in the world work in this very office. I don't usually recommend folks, but this office has it going on.
Best Of Friends Resturant now becoming JB's Barbeque. Prince and I used to love to eat at Best Of Friends on Sunday after church. We miss it but of course, will try the new barbeque place.
Mr Lisle at The Peach Cafe with his daily special sign. He says come on in and have a little lunch. I've eaten there once and will definately go again.
Bridlewood Morgans farm. I pass this place on almost a daily basis and am always struck by it's beauty. Their horses are amazing. The look so spirited and so strong (their house ain't too shabby either, lol).
Broad Street Sweets in our downtown area. Now just who doesn't like a good cupcake I ask you?
The Gun Show sign off of Highway 16. Only in the South, right? I love it!!
Rehab is going to be at one of our local pubs? I'm sooo there. No kidding, I'm going to HAVE to go to this one.
The Spirital Renewal Center sign in the bend off Bullsboro going into town. I just thought this sign was very well thought out and it caught my eye as I passed by. Of course I did a U-Turn to get this snapshot but please don't tell anyone....
MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: I was on my way to Alabama to pick up Roxie yesterday and I saw this traveling sign about to get onto the interstate. There was no way that I couldn't stop and beg for a personal photograph session right? The kind man gave me an old newspaper clipping and an old silver coin. That's his pups with him, Shep and Proverb. He told me that he's on a mission to spread the word of God and has been to almost every state in the last 8 years. Look at those horses.....aren't they be-yoots? As I pulled away the song "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" by Neil Diamond was playing in my head. As a matter of fact, I couldn't get that song out of my head for the rest of the day. What an amazing guy and what an amazing life he has chosen to live. I felt really humble as I left him and wished him nothing but the very best of love and kindness on his mission.
Well, that's all....for now. This was no way a competition (Miss Patty was beat me hands down in a competition of anykind.....she's a photojournalist!). She and I are just trying to spotlight our love for our charming towns.
Please do feel free and I invite you to leave me a comment telling my which one of my signs caught your fancy.

Gone, gone with the wind....ain't nobody looking back again".******
