Sign Sunday...

Signs, everyone who has spent time outdoors has seen some signs. Some of these are very unique some common some old and some we don't enjoy seeing. I know I've seen signs and most times I take a photo of them.

So I going to start a weekly feature probably every Sunday on a sign I have photographed. "Sign Sunday". I hope you'll stop by and read a few.

This sign photo was from Dixville Notch New Hampshire. It's the first town in the U.S. to vote for President. Good hiking, wildlife and brook trout.

This handsome gentle soul is "Parker" or as he is called by Papa, "Mr. Parker". He's the joy of my daughter, son in law, and two grand children Morgan and Ethan. They are on vacation and were unable to take him along so Parker is ours to enjoy and spoil for a few weeks.


Parker is the typical Lab, loves walking, fetching balls or anything else tossed, water sports, good dinning, and the well earned nap. Nana and Papa love you.


How many of you fish this this bucktail. The Mickey Finn has been around forever, care to guess why. Fished at the right time and the brookies will molest it to no end.

  1. I would suspect that Parker is just as spoiled as the grandkids. A fine looking pup.

  2. Hi!

    Yes, many things we see stir up memories that we cherish and are worth taking a photo of.

    Have fun in the water with Parker,

      Thanks.
      It's a wonderful attractor pattern. I've been told a striper or two has fallen to it.

  5. I have a bit of a sign fetish myself. Especially if they have "character."
    I'm sure Parker is going to have a blast with the grandparents!

    If I could only get my wife to love hiking as much as me; she enjoys the outdoors but wants to enjoy it in a rocking chair---the leaves should start to turn up that way soon, I hope you do a post showing their beauty. Thanks for sharing

      Autumn is a grand time around here. About a month and a half from now.
      I'll have lots of photos.

  8. Missed the last few posts until tonight. Wonderful to get into those eastern hardwoods again. And the brookies are looking better than ever. Thanks for the reminder about the Mickey Finn. And, going back a ways, "Iron Horse." You've done it again. Great name and beautiful tie.
