I spotted this fun sticker proclaiming automotive financial wisdom on a car in my workplace parking lot the other day!
As an aside—I’ve found debt-free living to be a highly satisfying lifestyle and I’m happy to own my own I-paid-for-it-with-cash vehicle. I recommend Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps as a great guide for budgeting, paying off debt, saving money, and building wealth.
I spotted these skeleton statue decorations in the midst of the Halloween aisles at my local Michaels store recently. What a perfectly specific gift for any Halloween-loving yogis in your life. 🙂
I’m guessing that this person is 1) an ardent practitioner of crewel embroidery and 2) an admirer of the villainess in the The 101 Dalmatians!
“Crewel embroidery, or crewelwork, is a type of surface embroidery using wool. A wide variety of different embroidery stitches are used to follow a design outline applied to the fabric. The technique is at least a thousand years old.”
“Locks keep out only the honest.”
“Locks keep honest men from making mistakes.”
Will 5 padlocks be enough to keep this gate closed?
The Walmart parking lot never fails to deliver interesting sights.
On a recent trip to the South Island of New Zealand, I saw a variety of interesting signs!
This chiropractor has both national pride and a sense of humor!
This sign is part of a display at the earthquake-damaged ChristChurch Cathedral.
The sign says, “Country roads are not motorways. Slow down.” Fun fact: In New Zealand, the maximum speed limit is 60 mph…
The game of croquet appears to be taken quite seriously here.
This is, ahem, a giant statue of a dwarf in the Auckland airport.
The giant dwarf statue is on loan from Middle Earth. 🙂
A cute farm stand near Abel Tasman National Park.
Make sure to note who has the right of way on the one-lane bridges!
Lambing in progress!
A pretty sweet-looking MOTEL sign.
This motor camp awesomely repurposed some classic McDonald’s playground equipment!
I encountered Star Wars Day 2018 being celebrated with style in a Vietnamese pho restaurant and on the interstate this past weekend. 🙂
I recently came across these harsh, but humorous, ways to inform someone that they’re wrong.
“I can explain it to the gentleman, but I cannot comprehend it for him.”
—Andrew Jacobs, Jr., American congressman, 1969
“I’ve been called worse things by better people.”
—Pierre Trudeau, Canadian prime minister
“Don’t talk unless you can improve the silence.”
—Jorge Luis Borges, Argentinian writer
“I’m right, and you’re smart, and sooner or later you’ll see I’m right.”
— Charles Munger, American businessman
Know the difference!
Lollygag—to fool around or to spend time idly.
Dilly-dally—to waste time by loitering or delaying.
