If any of you bloggers want to have a really good time and would like to meet some new friends, you really must go and meet our Teach, Mary T and post your very own Ruby Tuesday every week!... http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com
This week our assignment from our Teach was to take some photos of signs, and for me it was quite a challenge but here is what, with the help of Bernie and the little red car, I was able to find in our little neck of the woods.
This picture of Bernie inside the little red car was taken at sunrise and I must admit that it is a rarity for me to be up early enough to ever see a sunrise!
The light ruby tints are a SIGN that it is going to be a nice day!
This first picture tells you what city or large town that you are in.... Welland, the Rose City, Southern Ontario, Canada.
The only roses in sight this time of the year are the frozen ones etched into this SIGN!
Welland is known as the town where the "Rails and Water meet".
Sad to say that this is the last bridge that we have.
The other three bridges were torn down and over passes built.
This is apparently a SIGN of progress but I for one, really don't like the destroying of our history!
This huge "SIGN" is a mural that was painted by a local artist, Heinz Gaugel.
It is painted on an outside wall of the Sea Way Mall on Niagara Street.
It depicts the history of how the Welland Canal was created.
Built with the hard work and sweating brows of our fore fathers!
Now this is a SIGN that Ontario has been waiting to see for a long time!
Just a few short weeks ago the price of gas was $1.36 per litre which equals $5.07 per American gallon.
Well the little red car was surely happy that a fill up now costs only 69.9 per litre which equals $2.07 per American gallon!
She can definitely take her owner out more often now!
Ha!! This SIGN would surely have been appreciated by Dad Golden with his owning nine of these! [children]
Alas though, there was no such thing as Wal-mart in those days!
This is always a great SIGN to have. It is so unfortunate that the city didn't plough the roads properly though!
The same goes for this SIGN.
How does the city expect our children to be crossing from a snowy bank like THIS?!
We spotted this beautiful SIGN along the highway and I had to get out to snap this picture.
As you can see the bridge is a unique part of Welland and you can also see that Welland is very much bilingual!
This SIGN reminds me of the American commercials, "Got Milk?'
Well I guess the Canadians are telling you guys to "Get Cracking!"
Do you see this SIGN?
Well I am telling you, "SOMEBODY didn't!"[chuckle]
In Canada the washrooms are his and hers!
A picture is worth a thousand words!
This SIGN says it all!
One of the nicest things that anybody could ever see is a SIGN that says, "Free!"
These Gospel plaques are made by an elderly gentleman in our church and he always puts a goodly supply here, free for the taking.
The Sunday School children and even some adults help themselves!
Happy Ruby Tuesday everybody!!..love Terry
