SignEdge: Wash Hands – Common Decency

I don’t know about you, but it is quite a turnoff when visiting a bathroom in a public establishment, watching people use the facilities AND then leaving without washing their hands. Some try to dribble a couple of drops of plain water across their palms, but really that doesn’t count

You can imagine my surprise when I was made aware of this sign found in many California bathrooms. Thank you CA!




Yes, common decency demands you wash your hands! Yes, YOU!

SignEdge: Angling Speed Limit

It isn’t often that one sees a speed limit sign that doubles down on the number 45. Not only does this sign mean 45 mph, it seems to hanging close to a 45-degree angle of sorts.




45 Angle or MPH

Perhaps trespassing has been an issue, but just in case…pay attention to the last line.

SignEdge: Snakes Only!

Most of us have heard the phrase passive-aggressive. Well, I think the sign below is passive-assertive. My only concern is that there might be some who just don’t “get it.”

SignEdge: Feeling Tipsy?



Feeling Tipsy – Tip Jar at a local sports bar

What makes this sign rather “different” is that it serves as a double entendre since the picture was taken at our local Tailgaters Il Primo sports bar/eatery. Do you get the double entendre? I hope so because I think it is quirky!

SignEdge: A Race Even I Could Win – Non Marathon

I know you have seen them. They sometimes have 26.2 on them or perhaps only 13.1. They are car window decals espousing participation in, or at least an interest in or passion for, a marathon or half-marathon.

Well…the other day I came across a race that a septuagenarian like me has the potential to win. I think even I have a realistic chance at this one! What do you think?



Car Decal Non-Marathon

If you want one for your car, you can purchase one HERE or a variation on the theme HERE.

SignEdge: Prisoner and Blindfold Wines




Blindfold Wine Label

The Prisoner Wine Company has some unique labels for their wines. A marketing student could develop an interesting thesis discussing the popularity of wines based on their labels. Do colorful labels attract more purchasers? Do macabre labels attract buyers? Do the names of the wines grab attention?

Yesterday I spotted a wine called Blindfold. The label appears to be of a man tied to a post being readied for execution. The label may be thought more suitable for a red wine while Blindfold is a white blend.



Blindfold Wine Label

“They thought if he couldn’t see the world, then he wouldn’t make his mark. But a blindfold won’t hold him back. It just heightens his other senses. And whether they like it or not, his resilience will leave a lasting impression.”

From the Tasting Notes:

“ABOUT THE WINE –

In establishing our own spin on a white blend, we seek out interesting Rhône and aromatic varietals that nicely complement a classic Chardonnay base. We partner with growers dedicated to cultivating alternative varietals in their outstanding vineyard sites to create an intriguing wine with bold flavor.”

The Prisoner Wine Company, has a self-named red companion wine called The Prisoner.

“The Prisoner crossed a line. He spoke out of turn. He took a stand. His brazen actions bred consequences. But while his chains may hold his weight, his mind wanders unrestrained. For he remains unapologetically bold.”

From the Tasting Notes:

“ABOUT THE WINE –

The Prisoner was inspired by the “mixed blacks” first made by the Italian immigrants who originally settled in Napa Valley. The Prisoner is now the most recognized Napa Valley red blend, leading the resurgence of interesting blends by incorporating Zinfandel with the unlikely”

I have written about other wine labels and companies (see the link below) that I found somewhat unique. Would you be attracted to try the wine by these particular labels? Feel free to leave your thoughts in a comment below.

SignEdge: Hmmm? A Tunnel or Hat Ahead?

While traveling through Tasmania, I noticed this sign that I had never seen before. It might be a bit confusing at first, but it simply means that there is a bump in the road.

SignEdge: Some Buzz about Bumble Bee, AZ



Welcome to Bumble Bee
Bumble Bee – A small, perhaps very small, town
Photograph ©Jeffrey B. Ross – 2017

About 55 miles north of Phoenix (just off I-17 at Exit # 248) lies the town of Bumble Bee. This was once a busy stop along the stage coach line that ran from Phoenix to Prescott. Now it stands as a ghost town.

At one time, the sign above may have been accurate, but according to the information I could find on the Internet, Bumble Bee has not been included in past Census counts so reliable information about the current population is a bit of guesswork.

One thing we can be sure of, the sign indicates the type of community it was during its last productive era.

You can find a bit more nformation about Bumble Bee via the Visit Arizona Website

Yes, Bumble Bee is legendary. If you want to find out why, read this page from Legends of America.
