Travel Photo of the Day (March 25)

Whilst wandering through the Garden District in New Orleans I found this sign. I love people with a sense of humor.

    I think it’s wonderful that someone thought enough to create a sign to commemorate an uneventful year at that location. Usually, we say something is or was boring and we move on. Great post.

      That’s a great perspective on the sign. Thanks for sharing. In school I studied the history of everyday life. I’m fascinated by how average people lived during different times and different cultures. Not everything has to be “great” to be worthy of study.

  10. Brilliant – I should get one for Bexhill that says in 2012/13 Big Man and Chica worked far too hard!

    What a fun sign.

  12. LOL That’s awesome. Is it old or did they just make it look old?

  13. juliankwadwo says:

    That’s great!
    Normally, this kind of sign delivers bad news, doesn’t it?!
    so, yes. No news is good news!
    Only the word “news” is kind of out of place..
