Here's Your Sign!

This is the first post of what (I hope) will be a fun thread. In the spirit of Bill Engval, I decided to post this incident that occured to us the last time we went camping.
We pulled into the state park towing Goliath, the ranger looked out the window at us, and the trailer, with all our camping gear, and said "Going camping?"
I replied, "Nope! we were taking our houseboat out, and the pontoons fell off!" Here's your sign!...

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Several years ago, took the Girl Scout Troop to Savannah. Twenty girls and women, and me. I stuck out like a sore thumb. Got there around 11:00 p.m. on a Friday night, everyone piles out of the cars at the Ranger station to go potty, pick uo maps to the camp site, etc, before setting up the tents. The Ranger looks at the crowd, walks over to me and says "Are you the only man with this group?"

Being in public with a German Shorthair Pointer you get a lot of questions and comments. The best one was "Does yer dog point?" Jim replied "yeah, she points cuz she caint talk." Here's your sign.

A couple of months ago...met a fella...I think the name was Forrest.....Gump that is... as I was pulling in to my RV spot in one of those commercial campgrounds... nice place, big trees cool weather but back to me all story.......weehhew...this dude came up short of the full six pack...he looked right at me.... and then looked right at the front of my AS and said....
"Is that an AIRSTREAM?"

I said yep! I wreckin' it tis.....

I'm thinkin' this applies...

Do you need a sign?

Better yet....can you read?

funny thing is.... that's the only thing he said to us the entire weekend and I camped next to him....even said good morning everyday....he just grunted a bit....

boondocking clearly has its benefits over commercial.......

Here's your sign

Hi, I have a 1959 Ford Galaxie that I bought in 1977. It basically has been restored twice since then. I was cruising on Ocean Blvd in Long Beach, one evening, and as I was driveing, this Dodge van was following me for several miles. They drove behind me, along side of me, and in front of me. Really checking out my car. Back and forth several times for several miles. Then they pulled up next to me and I could hear, husband and wife arguing, The the wife stuck her head out of the passenger window and yelled out to me. "Is your car a 57 or 58? I answered 59! I have personnalized plates front and rear, "1959 GAL"

Hear's your sign!

We are camped near a lake and my 2 larger dogs (see picture on left) are in the water having a great time. I throw 2 balls they each swim out and bring one back. This goes on for about 30 minutes.
This man walks by and says, do they like to swim?
I reply, they don't want to drown.
Here's your sign.....

Hi, azflycaster. Since you mentioned dogs. Many years ago I had a pure bred Collie. [ Lassie dog, for those who don't know] A mature male Collie is supposed to weigh about 65 to 75 lbs. My Collie weighed about 127 lbs. There aren't enough signs to hand out to all the people who asked me if my dog was a Sheltie. My dog probably weighed about 100 lbs over an average Sheltie. [And for those who don't know, a Sheltie looks just like a toy Collie, but is not related.]

here's your sign

The last day, afater the last minute of the Gold Rush Days Event was yesterday (at 5:00 p.m)...the crew and I were taking down all of the displays in our room (of the Stanford Building): photos, brochures, videos, etc all neatly placed on tables and the floor ready to be packed and boxed up..a guy comes to the door and loudly asks: 'Are you still open?'..we all told him, no (politely, of course).. I told one of the gals, see, you should have had a sign that says: yes, we're closed!

I have 9 children age 18 months to 15 years old, plus I am 8 months pregnant. I get asked everywhere I go "Do you know what causes that?"by complete strangers.
My answers, depending on my mood:

"Yes, and it is fun"
"Would you like me to tell you?"
"No, they just keep showing up"
"My Momma tole me not to swaller so many watermelon seeds..."

I have often thought of wearing a shirt that says "YES< I KNOW what causes it!"

Not sure if this applies, but I am constantly flabbergasted by the number of people who have asked me if we ride in the trailer while on the road, while it's being towed.


I mean - each and every single person who's come to have a looksee at our new Airstream has asked that. Each one.

Even our insurance agent asked us that while we were finalizing the coverage documents!

wow. Either I'm naive as to people's lack of knowledge and/or stupidity, or I need to get me some new friends... Here's your sign!

Speaking of signs. After a record breaking rain storm a cinderblock wall next to the tiny grocery store here in Placitas collapsed. The owner got so tired of people coming in and saying "Did you know your wall fell?" that she made a large cardboard sign and put it in front of the collapsed wall. The sign said, "Yes, I know. The wall fell." And guess what? She told me people still came in and said, "Did you know your wall fell?"

so I'm laying on my side having my prostate biopsy. My doc, male, informs me he will be using an assistant. In walks a gal young enough to be my daughter.Gee wiz how do you blush when all that is showing from under the sheet is your head and buttocks? Anyway this is a 4 handed procedure the doc already is wiggling the ultrasound around and the assistant is doing her best with the sample taker thing. She says 'my you have a small anus' to which I quickly replied ' that's because I'm the omly one that uses it' Dead silence. and here's your sign
