Signs of Chico, Sundays in My City

Unknownmami hosts a wonderful worldwide party on Sundays. Today, I've got some signs to show you.

On a different note, my posts have not been feeding into the google reader for several weeks. I'd be lying if I said I'm fixing the problem. I don't know what else to try. If anyone has suggestions, that would be wonderful! Thank you.
                                     HAPPY SUNDAY AND FATHER'S DAY!

Welcome to Chico,
              where some signs are potentially helpful

and some signs are clearly redundant

      and some signs should probably be taken down already.

Thanks for visiting. Enjoy your day, especially all you dads out there!  xo


  1. Great post! That last one is my favorite....ha!

  2. Funny signs! I hope your problem with Google Reader is fixed soon. Sorry it's so frustrating. Thanks for all of your great comments! Julie (#400)

  3. Nice ones...guess they ran out of volunteers to take down the sign or in the case of the second...wishful thinking. Have a good week ahead.

  4. I'm very puzzled by the Not An Exit sign. Are they worried people might drive right through it, like stunt performers?

  5. Love the last one, lol. Now that's funny~!

  6. Great post. I love the signs. especially large lot. Hmmm? Really now?

  7. Hahaha!!! Those signs crack me up. I loved them all, but "large lot" really had me giggling. :)

  8. Funny! There is a lot of entertainment to be found in signs!

  9. LOL, I love these signs, especially that last one. I've seen some doozies around here in Chicago, too. Happy Sunday!

    I wish I could help the Google Reader thing, but I'm not very tech savvy. Hope it all works out soon. :)

  10. what a delightful post!

    funny signs! the last one cracks me up!

    hope your weekend is going just great!

  11. thank God!

    my blog roll problem got fixed finally!
    woo hoo!

    betty xo

  12. Chico looks like a hoot. Sorry I can't help. I'm having problems myself right now with Blogger. Couldn't you scream? But before you do I just want to say that I've tagged you on my blog :-)

  13. PuttingtheFUN, great to "meet" you. Thanks!

    Empty/Julie/my #400,=) thank you.

    Rek, yeah, wishful thinking. I'm tempted to take it down (or maybe just drive right through it) myself.

    GB, that one IS really random. It's so huge, and it isn't placed where one would think to exit.

    Sheila, yeah. I'll have to keep checking to see when/if it comes down.

    Laurie & Kelley, that one is hilarious. To think people spent money and time on it.

    Tara, thanks.

    Darlene, so true!

    Melissa, thank you. I'm sure Chicago's got some winners too.

    Rosalind, yes.

    Betty, really? I'm so glad! Maybe I just need patience - something I'm generally low on. Thank you.

    Rosalind, yes! I could just scream! Thank you. I'll hop over over.

    Happy Sunday and Father's Day. xo

  14. Hilarious...

    Large lot...too funny.

    Not an exit, what is up with that?

    You are definitely living in an interesting place.

    Love ya,

  15. You had me at chocolate! These pictures are hilarious. I love funny signs!

  16. I love your sense of humor and that you find so much fodder.

    I'm sorry about your feed issues. Do you already use Feedburner? If not, try redirecting your feed through them.

  17. These pictures are hilarious!

    Sadly I should be attending a class called "Google for Dum Dums" because I haven't a clue! Hope you get it fixed soon. Blessings, Joanne

  18. Ha! Terrific SIMC contribution. The signs are perfect and your photo treatments are cool.
    Cheers, jj

  19. YOu know Robyn, maybe that sign about Christ coming in May is still there because the people that put it up, are currently with Christ....just a thought :)

  20. Hmm, maybe that last sign meant that He'd be coming our hearts?

  21. As you can probably imagine, I'm always on the lookout for signs like these. In fact, I have a picture of one of them on my blog. (HINT: A shameless way for some of your commenters to maybe go take a peek).

  22. I love these pictures. The last one is hilarious!

  23. Love the signs! I hope your Google problem is fixed soon, I've had issues as well and it's frustrating. Hope you had a great weekend!

  24. thx rob, heard for two of my three bas... uh, kids... yesterday, so guess i'm ahead :O lol

  25. Sandra, LOL. I didn't think of that. You're probably right.

    Unknown, that's a good suggestion. Thanks. I may email you to follow up, since I don't understand this feed thing at all. Thanks, as always, for your great Sunday party.

    Al, have no shame. Your blog's great. EVERYONE SHOULD pay a visit and perhaps a follow!

    Laughing, 2 out of 3 is good odd.

    Have a good week, everyone. xo

  26. Hi Robyn,
    Love the signs! I saw one in DC one time that read "We will prepare and serve you at the Nam Viet restaurant!" Scared to go in there! Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment. I am delinquent in swinging by here, due to But I look foward to more. Regards, Melissa

  27. Ha ha that last sign....oops! *snort*

  28. Robyn-- Love you and sorry I've missed you--my Blogger has gone berserk too!

    But know that I LYMI--if you get this!



  29. These last few posts were great. Thanks for the chuckle!

  30. Thanks Robyn! I love these posts! It's nice to get out and explore, you never know what your are going to find. Signs for one thing...

  31. Old redundant signs make our town look shabby. I drive past them everyday and I don't notice them. It is only when I had an out of town visitor I realised it makes the town look neglected.

  32. Lol. I loved the middle one. Welcome to the redundant school of redundancy!! :)
