Signs . . .

     Are they spontaneous, a flash of inspiration, or are they “signs of the times?”

There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness. (Han Suyin.)

Liquor talks mighty loud when it gets loose from the bottle.

Every man has his price, they say, though some, it seems, hold bargain sales.

He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. Chinese proverb.

The race for quality has no finish line.

When you flee temptation, be sure that you don’t leave a forwarding address.

Colours are the smiles of nature, though I hope she holds her autumn smile for awhile don’t you?

     I’m sorry I can’t credit the creative men and women who put these thoughts on signs. They all approach the times with, perhaps the only weapon we have, laughter, and the  “times” prompt a question: Are they real or the work of a photo-digital wizard?

     They would surely be contenders in a Laughter Olympics, which I think we should have, and now propose!

     We’d all come away winners!

      We’ve got contenders for gold already — the Follies — always lots of laughs, classic talents, and a real good time. A tip of the hat to you all!
