One of my favorite signs


A few blocks from my house there is a condo development populated by retirees. Like many newer developments, the ground floor is set aside for commercial use. And, like almost every other such building in San Diego, the only businesses occupying any of the space are a Starbucks—one on the chopping block—and an H&R Block—open for four months every year. So, the majority of the ground floor is empty. Because empty buildings with some protection from the elements attract sleepy homeless people, the owners or managers of the building have posted the above sign. Enjoy the absolute refusal to accept any of the spelling suggestions that the word processing program certainly must have offered.
As a bonus, you almost get to see me as I walk Mateo.

Isn't that in hillcrest, San Diego? I know by that gigantic LIQUOR sign, I think.

It's in North Park, but pretty close to Hillcrest, and you can see one of the liquor signs in the background, but I think there's a vertical one, too.

And, Tom, by definition it is not a highway billboard, since it is not close to a highway. And it's no more dreadful than anything else on that block. Except for dear sweet Rudford's.
