Greetings Neighbors!

I am sure you have all seen those signs by the side of the road, advertising yard signs.  They usually have some sort of information regarding price and then contact us followed by a phone number.  We have actually purchased some of these with Bible verses and put them out in our front yard and of course we use them for the ministry.  We have a friend who helps us with ours. He owns a sign company and will make up the corrugated signs for us at cost.  I think we have over one hundred of them now.  These are the type of signs realtors use all over the country.

My husband likes these signs because they are portable, light-weight, and easy to change.  We use the little metal stands for them and you just slide one sign off and then add another!  We also have a few ministry signs like this made up for when we visit a new church or put up a display.  There is a lamp post in our yard where we keep one sign permanently mounted.

Do any of my neighbors use signs like these?  Do you use them for your business?  Do you find that they work for you and help improve your business traffic?  Let us hear your thoughts.

Now, speaking of signs, as we travel the country we love to keep an eye out for those odd ones.  One of my favorites was when we were visiting some friends in Alabama and one of the BBQ places they like to eat at had recently changed their sign.  It said HICK SAND 5.99.  We had a big laugh over this because our friends consider themselves official rednecks.  One of them said, "I am sure it meant chicken sandwich."  She was laughing of course as she said this. Maybe they were advertising customer specials!

How many of you have seen a funny sign like the one above?  Do you have any you would like to share?  If you actually took a picture of it, I would love to share it here At the Fence.  (Just make sure it is family friendly!)

Disclosure:This is a sponsored post however, all thoughts and opinions are mine.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
