I like watching for signs when I travel. Not the directional or apocalyptic kind – the ironic kind.

The beauties above adorned a hillside in Galilee, Israel.

Keeping The Door Closed At All Times

Some signs are a fuzzy kind of funny.

I saw the one below at Pearson International in Toronto. A manager wanted to insure that shoes or anything else did not collect on their watch. The open door where this sign was posted revealed shoes all over the floor.

This one was on the side of a boat we sailed in on the Sea of Galilee.

Savvy store owners capitalizing on the value of humor in marketing. Are you a reflection of what you eat?

Some signs need more than a single glance. I found this one in Bethlehem, Israel.

This one came from the Arab quarter of Jerusalem.

And Canadians are said to be too apologetic. This one came from the tunnels under the city walls of Jerusalem.

Not an actual sign but who could resist. Do Axl Rose and Slash know about this?

Blessed are those who forbid 3-legged dogs, ugly socks, plastic utensils, smokes, guns and of course botoxed lips.

When going to the Dead Sea in Israel always carry a spare jetty.

Swimming draws a lot of attention in Israel.

Yep, those rocks look dangerous.

O, thank heaven for 7 to 11.

I was tempted to cross out the word “ONLY” and write in “BATMAN” on this sign.

This one will always be one of my favorites. The sign in the Garden tomb.

“He is not here. He is risen.”

A close second favorite.
