And the sign says...

Always reminds me of this song:  Signs, signs
The lyrics (Arthur Thomas) are posted below:
[Originally by The Five Man Electrical Band)

And the sign says "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I put my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that, huh, me working for you"

Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
Blockin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign

And the sign says "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house
Hey! What gives you the right!
To put up a fence and keep me out, or to keep Mother Nature in
If God was here, he'd tell it to your face, man, you're some kind of sinner


Oh, say now mister, can't you read
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't watch, no you can't eat, you ain't supposed to be here

And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" - uh!


And the sign says "Everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray"
But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
And I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own fuckin' sign
I said, "Thank you Lord for thinking 'bout me, I'm alive and doing fine", oh

[Chorus 2x]
So here are some of my signs:

BEACH (bathroom)
Relax (bathroom)

Bakery (kitchen)
You Are My Sunshine (kitchen)

I got this to go outside on the patio.

Finally found a flip flop flag
for the front.  KICK UP YOUR FLIP FLOPS!
directional pole

That's all I have to show you now... there will be more.  It's such a beautiful day I am determined to enjoy it, even if it means doing nothing.


  1. Thank you so much for stopping over at my blog and commenting on the painting..I had also done a painting for Suicide awareness since we were with our friend when he got a call that his brother had committed suicide and he was the one to go find him...I understand what you are feeling right now. So sorry that another person had to go through the same.

    1. Thank you Karin. I found your painting and it has opened me up to the possibilities.

  2. I loce all your signs especially the round one with flip flops that says relax! Thank you for stopping by my blog!
