Excellent surprise. l/f

Connie Fox replied:

It was definitely excellent in that it became, through the years, so memorable! Thank you for appreciating this image with a vote and fave!

Magi, thank you so much for your comment. I'm glad my sign image was able to bring a good laugh. Thank you for your vote, and for sharing.

It has been a rather difficult past few days. My Husband got hit by a deer, the lights went out on the other car. The children we foster were causing some challenging situations, Monday started out just as challenging. I saw this and it made me laugh so much helping ease the tension of the week end. Love it. I am gonna share in on my fb. TY, Oh voted for it also

I'm glad to know it brought a laugh, Jim. I couldn't believe my eyes!

Made me laugh Connie. Sorry for what you went through to find this sign.

This really is hilarious

Connie Fox replied:

In hindsight, I can now laugh about it. So glad you found the humor in it, Paul. That made me smile--and then I started laughing again at the memory of the whole scene.

So funny! Please tell me that was posted where you could see it before you needed it! ((o:

Connie Fox replied:

Unfortunately, DiDi, that was not the case.

The beach was all but deserted, and I had been warned of no creature comforts there. We were on our own. Fortunately we eventually stumbled upon a vintage convenience_ store, where I literally had to step up and go through contortions to reach the tiny odd-shaped john. Once there, mission accomplished, the last thing I needed was the absence of one crucial restroom item. According to the clerk, they had had a problem with people stealing toilet paper. Hiding it beneath the cash register was their practical solution. Seriously. And adding to my dilemna was the knowledge that I simply could not let this photo-op get away. So I had to go the the car, return with the camera, and reposition myself in an room designed for an elf. Tied for First Place in the Warning Signs contest, September 25, 2013. Top...

About Connie Fox
