Sign, sign, everywhere ...

You know the song.  We have a new sign at the cottage.  But first, a little background.  Earlier this summer, we were shopping in Tawas, and in a pretty neat store, saw painted blocks representing each letter of the alphabet.  I said to the spouse, hey that would look cool in the cottage.  We looked into the blocks and they were $50/each.  That was way too expensive for a block.  So we pondered further and decided the Michele Yonkers at Grand Rapids Lighting could easily make us a sign that would 1) look better and 2) be much less; and even if it wasn't less,  the money would stay local and not be exported to China.

So we called her.  And she did.  Of course, it's amazing.  She does amazing work.

We cleared off the mantle.

I am hoping you know what those letters are ... and if you don't, check out the Navy signal flags.  We are back up there soon.  w00t!

Being an ex-Navy man myself, I should know these, but I never memorized them. But I did read Paul's blog and know what letters they are, and what they stand for...very cool idea! ;)
