Well seen, Paul. The person who put that sign up is quite a character, I'm sure!

Re: you have been warned........

Seems like a very reasonable request to me Paul.

I love it, and don't think I could have walked past it either.

a great sign and your framing keeps me here because its interesting but I think you need more contrast then the sign will show up better and hopefully add some more charactor to all that grey painted birck
