Not a good quality photo

This sign is down below the road as we leave the strip pit area...well, one way we leave.  I have wondered about this sign for ages and ages.  I always wonder about it....about who put it there.  I really need to start photographing more signs. 

When we were first married and lived in Terre Haute...there was a house we would pass fairly often.  One time we would pass, there would be a post hanging on the porch that said 'Monster Mash', the next time we would pass it was no where to be seen.  We watched it for almost two years and it was like that all the time.  We always assumed it was a signal for something.

At least the Manhood Tr. sign is always there.
We are both dragging tonight.  Roger tilled a new little garden spot today and we got a dozen tomato plants and 8 bell pepper plants planted.  We did that this morn.  Then we waited till late this evening and made my new little flowerbed out front.  I sure hope that everything lives.

Roger says the minute he lays down he will be asleep...I didn't say it but that probably holds true for me, too.

Interesting your sign stories. A rewarding but tiring day for you. Sweet dreams Rose.

Funny story about the disappearing sign! Best wishes with your new plants. Hope you both rested well and have a good day.

That is a strange sign- manhood tree? Isn't it amazing how just being outdoors in the fresh air can make you sleep better? It's one thing I love about camping- more outdoor time. Of course..hard work makes one tired too! Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Manhood tr. Maybe tr. is for trail not tree? Maybe there is a trail to manhood--Chuckle.

Glad you got your tomatoes and peppers planted. Sounds good.

Fresh air--good sleep

I am thinking it means the trail is so hard that only strong men can make it? Just a bit creepy!

just think in a couple of months you will have lots and lots of tomatoes and peppers.

Hi There, Happy Pentecost today. Hope you are wearing your RED....

Happy Memorial Day Weekend to you and yours also. Let's never forgot those who died for our freedoms... God Bless them ALL.

Interesting SIGN for sure... I always wonder about signs like that... Who knows??????

Sounds like you will have more great tomatoes and bell peppers soon... YUM.

Sorry I haven't been around much. George and I have a couple of new online programs (one is a Food Journal and one a fitness/exercise program) --so we are VERY busy increasing our exercise and getting healthier... That's my excuse and I'm sticking' with it... ha ha

I'm hoping the frosts are over for this year! We had one just a couple of days ago. Crazy weather. Tired is good if a sound sleep follows. ;)

I am so curious about that Monster Mash sign...maybe someone was giving costume parties where you had to dress as a monster! :-)

Hi Rose,
Wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting my blog last week. I'm feeling more like me but I had company this week (a nephew from Vegas) and now I need to get some energy back from going everyday. :)
Love the library below and the pics of Lorelei.
Manhood Trail - don't think I want to venture to guess that thought. LOL!

I hope all your plants survive and blossom too. Nothing quite like outdoor work in the fresh air to make you appreciate your bed lol.
