One of my part-time jobs is as a mobile notary. I have enjoyed getting to drive to some pretty out-of-the-way spots. Today I drove to Afton, Tennessee and took a route through some countryside I had never seen before. On the way, I saw several signs - some nostalgic, some disturbing and some humorous. I don't know if the photos are that good - I just used the point and shoot for these.
I took these at a gas station on Highway 11E. I assume there's no gas here (check out the price!), but someone sure has taken care of these vintage pumps. One of my favorite lines from a commercial when I was little was "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star!"
I saw quite a few signs for fireworks, but this sign had me wondering whether Wild Wilma was a local celebrity or just a retail chain:

I came home and looked up the verse, and we talked about it some at dinner tonight - not a lot because I often feel like I'm in over my head when I try to explain the trinity.
Speaking of Bible verses, I'm enjoying the chalkboard I have in my kitchen now, and this is the message we have up this week:
