Warning Signs

No Trespassing

Signs, public road signs or private warning signs, are erected to keep us safe and warn of us dangers that may lie ahead. It's best to heed the warning…or is it? Take a look at this sign from Florida. I do my fair share of hiking, but if I'm hiking along this road I bet my right foot that I'm not moving to the side of the road. As lackadaisical as alligators appear, when in the right mood they can snap faster than a baited mouse trap tripped by a hungry Mickey.

No Trespassing

This second sign is right up my alley. The message is clear, precise and requires the reader little thought to understand the consequences. Trespassing is against the law in most parts of the nation and this landowner doesn't mince words or intentions. Would you poach a deer on the wrong side of the fence here? Not me.
