Photo taken in the Central District of Seattle.
Imagine you are driving through Seattle one morning. The skies are gray and there is a light rain. Up ahead you think you see a parking spot. There is a car coming up behind you.
You glance over to see if it is OK to park there. This is the sign you see.

First came the cancer. Then someone defaced his movie poster in Capitol Hill.
I took this photo outside the Cupcake Royale / Verite Coffee in Madrona last night. I meant to ask the staff inside what it meant, but it slipped my mind. Although I never followed wrestling, I did live in the Tampa Bay area from 1994-1998 and I do have my own Hulk Hogan story.
Maybe this place is staffed by more than one woman named Joy?

This sign was taped to a bush in the Central District. Underneath it was the response.
Who needs a gym membership when you can exercise at 76?
Telling visitors where to find the salmon or telling the salmon they need to swim upstream?
Shopping sign located in the Wallingford area of Seattle.
I’ve probably pulled close to 5,000 shots of espresso at home. What happened Saturday has never happened before. After finishing my espresso, I picked up the demitasse, looked inside and saw a heart. Some people see Jesus in a grilled cheese sandwich, I found a heart staring back at me from my empty espresso cup. This isn’t Coffee Tasseography, which involves reading coffee grounds, but perhaps a sign of true espresso love?
When I mentioned how much I loved Velton’s Bonsai Blend espresso, I had no idea it was a reciprocal relationship.

One of the things I enjoy most about Seattle is seeing what The Lusty Lady has up on their sign. Not as good as Indiana Moans and the Temple of Poon, but pretty funny.
I spotted this sign today on my espresso hike. Of course I had to stop in for some happy power.

This is how we cross the street in Seattle.
Photo taken in the Montlake area. What was impressive about this was the hula part of the sign was a good 10+ feet off the ground. Much higher than the San Diego version one.

Last month I located a man with a claw in Lower Queen Anne. Today I found another one in Wallingford area. Which one do you like better?
A few days ago, I went past Site 17 and noticed the misspelled quote plaque has been removed. All the other quote plaques around the building are still up. Considering that misspelling has been up since the building was built, I am going to assume someone has been reading this site.

There is a convent behind my home. It has a parking spot that is reserved for the nun inside. Thou Shall Not Park There!
According to the Wikipedia, Seattle may be the smartest city in America.
Additionally, survey data by the United States Census Bureau indicated that Seattle was the most educated city in the U.S., with 52.4percent of residents aged 25 and older having a bachelor’s degree.
Even the graffiti can be smart. This Queen Anne Stop sign was too smart for me, so I looked it up.
Waiting For Godot was a play originally written in French that debuted in 1953. Too smart for me.
A McDonalds billboard in Belltown gets tagged brilliantly. The original phrase was “Three reasons to put PANTS on“. I like the diapers version better.
Another Seattle sign gets a makeover.
Site 17 is a condo development in the Belltown area of Seattle. Units currently for sale in this building range in price from $200,000 to $465,000. The building is surrounded with plaqued quotes. Greeting you when first enter the building is this quote.
Another STOP sign in Queen Anne gets a make over.
Be on the lookout for a man with a claw in Lower Queen Anne.
He was humiliated.
Before you head out to see Indiana Jones 4, make sure you’ve read the listing correctly. I’d hate to see you end up at the wrong theater.

If you’ve driven around Southern California, then you’ve seen the Prohibido sign. It basically is warning drivers to avoid mowing down future taxpayers as they decide which side of the freeway is el Norte.
Seattle has it’s own version of the sign. Notice the flying laptop? Maybe Washington drivers are more likely to slow down for a laptop than a child?
