Tattered Past: My ongoing journey through genealogy, history, writing, self-exploration and art. ~~~ Rita Ackerman

I love this sign. It is over the entry to a garden art store. They have all kinds of cement animals, pots and statues. They weren't open when we were walking early but I still snapped the sign.
I then decided to spend the rest of that walk snapping signs. There are some interesting ones. I hope to study some of the history of Naches as it was a contemporary of Tombstone. Are there wild stories there too?

This sign was in an alley next to a large birdhouse. I'd like to meet the person who did this. Was it because they love their cats or was it someone who hated all the cats roaming around and was being cynical?

Fix that sign. Or not.

I see you.
And last but not least the cafe I always wanted to go in. Funny the baking must have been done earlier or the night before. I never smelled the bread smells but the bacon smell covered the entire downtown. (All two blocks of it.)

Try picking a theme (signs, flowers, broken things, funky cars) and take your camera exploring.
