Header Competition # 40 "A Sign or Poster That Caught Your Eye"

The header theme this week by Mac and is "A Sign or Poster That Caught Your Eye".  MacDarlaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Lanny has joined in this week, glad to have her aboard.

Martha and Tom are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.

One of my favorite corn markets is this one in the Cuyahoga National Park with the corn grown near the Cuyahoga River.
Downtown Kent neat the old historical building is a sign that reminds me of a special time gone by for Kent. 
I guess I must go back downtown and read the other side. John Brown fought for the Union side of the Confederate War.

George Adams from Tennessee added this information in his comment:
 "On a historical note, John Brown was hanged in December, 1859, for his role in the raid on Harper's Ferry. This was over a year before the start of the War of Northern Aggression (I couldn't resist)". 
Now here is a salon that I'l never go into for a drink, wait, shame on me. Why it's a hair salon, but I still won't go in with that sign.
My son's boys have quite the play area with this hideaway fort with a quick rope escape not far from the zip line.
But my favorite is a photo of the area from a different angle.


If anyone is interesting in participating please contact me for we need some people to join us.

I think you picked the right photo for your header, although all of your pictures are good.

On a historical note, John Brown was hanged in December, 1859, for his role in the raid on Harper's Ferry. This was over a year before the start of the War of Northern Aggression (I couldn't resist).

Nice, nice salon!

Your grandsons' play area looks inviting for sure.

Well it took all day, really my header changed fairly quickly but I don't have my post up yet to explain myself it should only take a few more minutes. I needed to come over and pick up your URL and all so I guess I've joined you all. Probably too late for today but I really needed to just get the pump primed. We'll see how it goes.

Love the Corn sign, since I'm such a nut for fresh produce.

I have visited Harper's Ferry in WV several times. I didn't know that John Brown lived in Kent. I bet your grandsons love that tree house!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Did you help build the fort?
Where did they get the signs?
So many unanswered questions, FG. LOL
I always stop and read those old signs and have been known to take pics of them so I could read them later. There are a lot of them at the battery in Charleston, SC.

This was neat. The Underground Railroad piece hit me because my kids and I were reading about it at school the other day. Cool!

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I was wondering about that header photo. I like all of your possible choices for signs that catch your eyes.

The signs are neat-but I love the hideout : )
