Seen Along The Way

While we were traveling to and from the Oregon Coast last week we saw a couple of things that made us scratch our heads and wonder "What were they thinking, here?" I couldn't let them pass without capturing them on my camera to share with you.

The first was at the back of the old schoolhouse in Lafayette. As we were leaving the building and walking to our car I looked up and saw this door. Two stories up.

Watch your step!

On our way home we stopped at a 'strange' old building by the highway where a big warehouse-type store holds books. Lots of books. Old and new. My dear mother told us she had purchased many books there through the years. Low prices. Good books. So we stopped and looked. We weren't there long before my sweetheart showed us this sign.


Someone needs a spelling book!

No matter where we go there is always something to bring a smile and a laugh. When life gets too serious I think I'll head for this bookstore - with my shovel.

  2. Amusing pictures! It's always so much fun to find things like this while on vacation! We always take photos of them too!

  7. the other night there was a news-spot about illiterate students in California schools. the title of the spot was on the tv screen. it read:

    "Reading and Grammer Trouble"

    I'll give a brownie point to the first person who can figure out the trouble with that statement. ;o)

  9. I have been to this antique mall many times, as I used to live in McMinnville. Oh, lucky you. It is such a fun place to visit. My kids got a kick out of that slide fire escape. What a cool and ingenious idea. Have a pleasant Sunday evening. ~Kathi
