I get a kick out of the signs in ghost towns and old buildings from the past. Sign boards seemed to be a way to make a statement, give directions, advertise or in general say whatever it was they wanted to say. Maybe like todays bumper sticker. Some boards have interesting detail. Beautiful lettering, pretty colors and curves and swirls. Others were short and sweet. Paint a board and nail it up. These gems were found at an abandoned copper mine. A ghost town in Arizona which at one time had a population of thousands and now just a hundred or so.
I especially like "Do not throw old clothes or shoes out of the windows". What window?
Not far from the California Mexico border is the Salton Sea. I don't know if it was a 'hot spot' at one time or some developers had high hopes of it becoming one. There are empty building lots. The weathered and faded For Sale signs are stretched across the desert sand. A shell of a tourist shop advertising water sports and a deserted beach.
Driving down the road before we reached the Salton Sea were rows and rows of date palms. The heavy bunches of dates are bagged, dry on the tree and then harvested. I must admit I had never seen a date palm with dates on it. Some things you just think come from a store, right? I was reminded of our young daughter years ago who was horrified to find out milk came from a cow! When we asked her where she thought milk came from she said, 'The store".
Brynn inspires us with her impromptu ballet and gymnastic stunts.
Before long Sadie was in on the action strutting her stuff. She had quite the moves and wanted to make sure we noticed her spiffy duck tape bandages.
