Have you noticed all the different signs around town? True, more than one sign is strictly advertisements — periodically they are interesting.
One can’t help but notice the flashing neon sign on Madison near the Greenwood Shopping Mall. More than a few letters are gone. It blinks “quor” instead of advertising the establishment sells Liquor.
Did you happen to see the portable marquee sign on Meridian? “Tina, I love you – please come back.” I wonder what ever happened to Tina.
The canopy sign outside of Fazoli’s advertised: All you “care to eat for $2.99”. I took my nephews and couldn’t help but notice they took the sign down the next day.
Within a few blocks of the Shopping Mall, there is a deer crossing sign. True, plenty of deer cross a highway causing more than one accident. But honestly, have you ever seen a deer cross at where the signs are?
More than a few banks have electronic signs giving the date, time and temperature. However; when it is 93 degrees outside, who needs to read a sign to know it’s hot.
There is a stop sign on Main Street in Greenwood that obviously doesn’t mean stop. More often than not when the cars come up to the street they roll right through. I got a ticket there once. Now I stop.
By far my favorite sign is the billboard on I-65. As you head south toward Columbus you can’t miss it. “Tattoos While You Wait” Well, I would certainly hope so.
