LOTR at the Grocery Store

This grocery store sign made my day!

A sign hanging over the potato bins at the grocery store reads "Po-tay-toes, Boil 'Em, Mash 'Em, Stick 'Em in a Stew"

Signs of Autumn in the Mountains

I saw these delightfully homely signs while taking the Monte Cristo scenic drive through rural northern Utah a few weeks ago.

Homemade, spray-painted sign reading "Sheep On Road"

This is the time of year that ranchers bring their sheep and cows down off federal land, where they’ve been grazing all summer.

Naturally, I had to wonder—Do only the slow sheep hang out on the road?
The fast sheep are quick enough to get out of the way of speeding cars! 😉

It’s Paid For!

A car bumper sticker stating "Don't laugh, it's paid for"

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.

Crewela Drives a Honda Pilot

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.”

I’m Right and You’re Wrong

 

A sign stating "I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong."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
