Today, while my two young charges were attending reading hour at the Cherry Hill Library, I skulked out onto the floor to capture a few signs hawking books.  What better sign can you find!

Take note of the Elephant and Piggie sign.  If you have small children or grandchildren, go to your local library and pick one or more of these up.  They are hysterical and adorable.  Oh, by Mo Willems (no I didn’t leave out the ‘i” and mistype the “a”.  It really is  Willems.:-). )

And, speaking of my charges, this little guy is wearing a sign as well.

I had to include the cute little pouty lips.

Since we had a torrential downpour this morning, I put my bike ride off til I got home.  I didn’t really overwhelm you with too many fun fotos up top, so I thought I’d take my camera on my ride and point and click in the park.  I was amazed at the number of signs I came across.  These are just some.



This is actually the second stop sign on my route.  I thought the hydrant gave it a little more class. 🙂

Then comes the stop sign warning – telling you that a stop sign is up ahead.  HUH? (if you look way down the road a piece, you’ll see the actual stop sign this sign is referring to.  WHAT?

One Way

Believe it or not, there was another Do Not Enter sign to the right.  Can you say Overkill?

Slow Down!

Slow Down!

This sign is suppose to register your speed.  I guess I wasnt’ going all that fast.  I’m working on it!



A little retro here.  And there really is a pay phone under this sign.  It’s seen better days, but it works!

Do you think they want you to stay out?

A few more rules and regs before leaving the park.  And none too soon.  This was a sign that it was time for me to go home!!!!

This one’s a little blurry and understandably so.  I was shaking in my boots when I shot this.  I’m a little leery of these guys.  It all started back in 1970, in the San Fransisco Bay area.  But that’s another story for another day.

Hope you had a little fun.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate each and every visit.



  1. I like these signs. The vintage phone cracks me up. Although they say should there ever be some kind of apocalypse that renders cell phones useless, we should know the location of a pay phone and have some change handy. I wonder how much it costs to play Words With Friends on it…..

    I also love the little plant at the bottom of the stop sign.

  2. Great stuff! Just taking my camera out in a public library over here got me threatened by security to be kicked out if I tried to take any pictures.

    • You know. That thought crossed my mind, but nobody said anything. I must be too imposing. 😉
      Good ‘seeing’ you. Thanks for the visit, Allan. Do you remember that guy I sent you a photo of with the cane, crossing the street – my version of street photography? ‘Member? I saw him come out of his house and I saw him a different day walking down the street. He dresses like that every day, apparently. Wild, huh? I keep looking for more photos that say ‘street’. I’m struggling but not giving up. People are tough subjects for me. Blah!

    • Thanks, Cee. Sometime I’ll tell you about me, my hippy friends, my trip to California and the two raccoons that turned me off to – ah – raccoons. 😉
      I’m glad you liked my post. Sometimes I worry I’m stretching the topic, but, that’s me. Always just a little bit unconventional. Nothing too crazy. Just a smidge. 🙂

  3. The Childrens section of libraries are always so much more appealing nowadays Gemma which I think is fantastic.Love the retro phone !
    Sometimes I think we overdo it on signs over here in UK they can spoil a view or the info be tad obvious 😉 ….

    • I just discovered this library. Sadly, it’s much better than the one in my own town which is more concerned about its restaurant district. Everything has a purpose, I suppose. Collingswood’s is to pack on the pounds.
