Signs of Life: Part 32

© 2023 Rex Jaeschke. All rights reserved.

From time to time during my travels, I come across signs that I find interesting for one reason or another. Sometimes, they contain clever writing, are humorous, or remind me of some place or event.


As a person who takes off his shoes when entering his house, I quite understand.


A store in Penn Station, New York City, that sells men's accessories, such as neckties. However, it's not clear to me that many tycoons ride the train.


That's not asking for too much, is it?


This sign says it all!


While it's not your average police car, space in New York City is limited!


From Haren in the Netherlands. Literally, "Pentecost flower path."


A poster protesting the ability to hunt bears in the US state of Wyoming.


A recycling bin in the Netherlands. When was the last time you saw a place to recycle handbags and curtains?

As I've often said, "Those foreigners have words for everything!"


Where in the English-speaking world are you likely to pay $12.67 plus tax for 30 minutes of parking? New York City!


Well, as we can see, this dog's bollocks are certainly on display! What surprised me was that this English slang term was the name of a pub in Groningen, the Netherlands.



A café and wine bar; naturally!


A clothing shop in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Not necessarily for sissies, however.



As I exited a Dutch church, I saw this high-tech way to donate to the church-restoration fund.


Now there's a fantatstic idea! I've certainly stayed in my fair share of places where that didn't happen!
