I have quite a collection of photos for Cee’s challenge, and some you may have seen a few of them before, as Ailsa had the same theme last year.
On our beach, there is a sand sculptor who plies his trade right opposite one of the two snazziest 5 star hotels in Umhlanga. There is always a message on his sculpture, and I think he does quite well out of the tourists. (The ‘Durban July’ is South Africa’s most famous horse race, and attracts race goers from all over Africa.)
Along the promenade are many holiday apartments, this sign is prominent outside one of them.
Up the road in the village is a hardware store, and I couldn’t resist snapping some of the signs for sale.
My trip to Belize in January, yielded many photo opportunities. There were funny signs everywhere.
Some of them were rather scary,
and even threatening.
The bar in our hotel had some interesting cocktails, but I stuck to the Mojitos. I didn’t dare order that first one. 😯
At breakfast I was inspired every day by the thoughts posted on the wall of the dining room, especially, “Live in a state of radical appreciation.”
This sign in the restroom at Belize airport, intrigued me somewhat.
Here’s a rather encouraging sign I saw in a restaurant in England.
I remember this, so don’t worry about cholesterol when I’m eating pizza at one of my favourite local restaurants.
Here’s a sign I and my granddaughters always find hard to resist.
Coney Island in Brooklyn New York, has many so-called attractions. Would you be tempted to pay your money to see this show? I wasn’t even mildly curious.
Now, this sign on hubby’s sister’s patio wall, sounds far more entertaining.
Here is a T-shirt I wanted to buy for hubby, but he wasn’t keen.
Only in Miami would you find yourself following a bus with this advertisement on the back. :).
I have quite a few more signs I could show you, but I’m off to hide myself from the aliens. 😯 I saw this message on a fridge magnet at a flea market in Florida. The stallholder told us that she has it on her fridge door, just in case she feels like trying to diet. 🙂

Have a great weekend, and if you’re a mom, have a very happy Mother’s Day.
Don’t forget to visit Cee’s blog to see other contributions to the challenge.
I came to this a little late…but I still had a lot of good laughs! Thanks!
I’m glad you did, Suzanne. 🙂

Thanks for the visit. 🙂
hahaha … hysterical. there are quite a few funny ones. I would be concerned to go to the one that had the sign where shoplifters would be mutilated … mmmm … I don’t know why anyone would shoplift but I hope they read that sign befoe they do. LOL
Glad you enjoyed these, Issy. Well at least that sign would cure the shoplifters for life. 🙂
That Kama Lounge sign cracked me up 🙂 Thank you AD 🙂
Glad I could give you a laugh, Paula. 😀
Loved all the signs AD 😉
The sharks and the MiL one works for me 😉
Thanks so much. I hope my DiL doesn’t feel the same way about me. 🙂
Not something I’ll have to worry about for a while still, if ever, but I’ve often wondered what my future DiL will feal about me 😉

Thanks, Tilly. Glad you had a giggle. 🙂
Your photo collection is nothing short of miraculous!!! You made me laugh out loud with the “gimme my discount.”

Definitely a fun collection, Ad! Your lead photo reminded me that the sand sculptures at FIESA in the Algarve will be starting up soon. I always love them.
Yeah, gimmee the darn discount! Got to be some advantages to ageing. 🙂
Absolutely, Jo. We deserve some compensation. 🙂
I might have been tempted to see the headless woman 😉

What a great collection of signs, Sylvia! They’re all hilarious, especially the experienced drinking companion for “carrying on” and the wife day care center. I love “Live in a state of radical appreciation” and that W.C. Fields quote! 🙂
