Ruth’s Partyland in Austin and The Barbershop Moved

From our Austin adventure although I’ve been home a week and a day.

I always like to photograph interesting signage. Urban communication.

Chris, my friend’s son,  drove by Ruth’s Partyland as slowly as he could while I tried to catch it with my camera.

Then the next time around he actually pulled into the parking lot. I never made it inside to photograph the pinatas. And I read they had Mexican candy, too.  I was so disappointed.

Coffee and Competition – Corona Café Austin Texas

My three friends and I were headed to a quilter’s studio to check out her hand dyed fabric (stay tuned) Anne needed REAL coffee.  Tucked away on Corona Drive in a mini strip of businesses was Corona Café

These two men were going to play disc golf but the rain kept them inside on Saturday morning.

“We felt like doing something competitive.”  So here they are in Corona Café playing Scrabble.

The barista made us excellent coffee.

Naiman was so nice.  I asked him about his name.  His father got it off the back of a car but it is a Mongolian warrior. He told us we could look it up.    Naiman

Pete’s Signs in the Roller Shades Department

I forget the number of the aisle at Home Depot. Thursday afternoon.

 

My sister was helping me get straightened up around here.  The family’s gathering in this weekend.

I was getting a couple of new shades for my bedroom windows. Make it private for my guests.

The shades had to be cut to size.

On the shelf below the shade cutter,  I saw these two signs and asked,

“Who made these signs?”

“Pete”

“Tell Pete they’re great!”

(BTW the customer service was super today! and no mistakes )

But What’s a Hoogie?

Submarine sandwiches are called lots of things – depending on where you live.

A grinder, a hoagie, a sub, a hero, a blimpie- to name a few.

Last Sunday afternoon,  I filled up the tank in Clintonville, Ohio  before heading to Pittsburgh and saw this sign.

A new name or a typo? Well,no typewriter was involved but a misspelling? or intentional naming of a new type of sandwich.

Shot from inside the car through the windshield. With the iPhone.

My DIL said, why didn’t you go in and ask them. Never occurred to me.
