No one believes me, but I swear I once passed a sign in Alabama that read 'Please Don't Litter, Help Keep Alabama Illiterate'!!!
Almost had to pull over I was laughing so hard
Man some funny stuff in this thread!
Our dad was one guy in the early years that loved driving. He bought his first Dodge coupe during his 20 something days. But, from 1946 to the time he passed away in 1984, he was a die-hard, proud, Buick sedan owner. (approx. every 4 years he bought a new Buick sedan) On many of the long family vacation (and So Cal family cruises) trips we took in his Buick sedans, my brother and I would race to the windows to see who could read those silly roadside signs put there by Burma Shave Company.
We all probably learned to read from those signs and our vast comic book collections. The signs were on most major highways, out in the country, on the outskirts of the cities, and coming into or going out of small towns. When we all saw the red signs, my dad slowed down just so we could have our reading challenge. Even my mom joined in the fun to read those bright red signs.
My dad had to shave almost twice a day. He actually bought a Burma Shave foam dispenser. Of course, we had to try it, just because we were little kids. He like the Burma Shave foam for about a week or so, but went back to his favorite "Old Spice." That was a distinct aroma lingering all over our old Long Beach house. Yes, we also tried on his Old Spice on our young faces, too.
But, those trips in the big Buicks were added fun, because it was a contest to see who could spot the signs first. Brotherly competition lives from an early time!!! (although my brother could read first, I had to learn to catch up!)
Great Avatar Mason!!
