The first sign is a sign I saw several years ago while travelling to Ireland. We had stopped at a small village in Wales somewhere and this sign was in a bookstore. Brilliant! I made sure my hands were clean!

The second sign is a sign I saw for a long long time. As we were heading to England one wintery day, we got stuck in traffic in France because everybody was heading for England and the trains had stopped running due to a train that was stuck in the middle of the Channel Tunnel. In the end I managed to get off the motorway and return to the Netherlands, but I think this sign was in sight for more than two hours! So close and yet so far...

The third sign I saw in Denmark two years ago. I thought it was hilarious at the time and fortunately got my chance to take a photo of it. It means periodical SPEED checks! 

Of course I couldn't do a post about signs without my favourite topic, so as the fourth sign I show you a toilet door sign. One of the many I have gathered over the years. This one was taken in Canada, when I was there two years ago.

This is my 44th entry for Photo Theme for Thursday. Why not join?


  1. Heel afwisselend bij jou en de laatste is deze keer mijn favoriet. Na 2,5 week in Nederland vanwege kleindochter Roos, sinds gisteren weer terug in Los Boliches. Saludos de Mara

  2. Love the fart control, lol ! In the States there where often signs : No shirts, no shoes, no service ! Not bad either !

  3. You know that I started taking toilet doors/sign because of you!
    Love the sign from Denmark too. We went through several tunnels when we drove from Paris to Italy. God forbid that someone gets stuck in one.

  4. Is it really two years since you were here? Well, I guess it will be two years in, what, September?
    Seems like just yesterday to me. The older I get, the more time flies. "Recently" is any time in the last 30 years.
    The signs are great. I should be in charge of photographing signs while Dick is driving, but the shutter speed on my camera is so slow, everything is a blur if I try drive-by shots.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
