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.

SignEdge: No Trespassing, They Mean It

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



Oh, oh!

Birds of Arizona: Glendale Recharge Ponds – Pt. 2

Note – If you missed part 1 of this story, you can find it here:

Birds of Arizona: Glendale Recharge Ponds – Pt. 1

As we continued our walk and circled around the pond, we came across several Cormorants sunning themselves. I usually associate these birds with shorelines, but they were probably just passing through.

As we returned to the parking area where our car was located, this Black Phoebe was sitting on top of a no fishing sign. It didn’t say he couldn’t catch flies!

The southern boundary of the recharge pond park, had a nice wide path for walkers and bikers.

Having had enough gnats and/or flies, we headed back to our car. We did not anticipate that a good number of the annoying recharge pond denizens would want to hitch a ride with use, but pack into the car they did.

The morning was moving on and the prime bird watching window was closing, so we decided to head to the Tres Rios Base & Meridian Wildlife Area which often attracts a variety of birds. Our GPS led us a bit off course, but we finally made it.

It is located very near the ISM Raceway, South Phoenix.

There was no event at the racetrack so parking was wide open. We parked along the side of the road and walked through the gate toward the river inlet.

While the water was not “raging,” it was moving well. Several people were fishing as we walked along the riverbank looking for birds.

We could see movement in the trees and we knew there were birds in the distance, but I am not skilled enough to be able to identify them by song. I would need a relatively good visual sighting to confidently ID a bird.

As we walked under the roadway overpass, we could see the Swallow nests

I did spot another Phoebe waiting in the tall, dried grasses.

Not having much success finding birds to identify, we decided to leave. As we made our way to the parking area, we spotted a Cormorant sunning on a partially submerged log.

He wasn’t alone long as a “buddy” also thought this would be a good location for sunning.

What is it they say about “birds of a feather?”

It was an interesting day and we enjoyed finally visiting the areas to see what they had to offer.

The Tres Rios Base & Meridian Wildlife Area hosts a number of events including nature awareness and bird watching opportunities. You can follow the along on their Facebook page to see what the upcoming functions offer.

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: 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.
