Old Timer Alert

I have a vague recollection as a kid of seeing a similar, but smaller, sign in Boyd as you entered it eastbound on 114. Am I right?

I've seen that sign many times over the years!

What does the sign have to do with being an old timer?

I thought the Boyd sign said something about, "Boy, don't let the sun set on you here."

Or maybe that was Bowie.

Let's be politically correct here. The Bowie sign said, "Nigger, don't let the sun set on you here."

Remember the Greenville sign "the blackest land and the whitest people"

Remember the sign at the US-Mexico border, "No Trespassing"

sign might as well have read "please laugh at us, we are country bumpkins"

You are correct but the words "God" and "Hell" were reversed!

Has anyone seen the speedo-guy-lawn mower man recently?

Sign might as well have read "Please disregard our laws and do whatever the hell you want to".

I wonder what folks would say if the sign said "This is Allah's country..."

Lucifer, They would probably say, "Let's get the hell out of this hell hole. I don't want to live in the 12th Century. I'm allergic to the smell of goats and young boy sex slaves. I can't get anything to grow from rocks. I wish people would stop asking me to wear this vest and make a farewell video".

If the sign had read ......"through it like a bat out of hell".........I would have liked it better. I still wouldn't go to a church in Hondo, Texas though.

Pro tip: If people "drive like hell" through your town, its because they want to get out.

I remember the signs coming in to Decatur that said, "Eighter from Decatur, Couty Seat of Wise!" And there was a picture of the die showing the double fours.

The Baptists had a fit about those signs (decades ago)....saying Decatur should be known more for its Baptist College rather than a saying that associated it with a gambling game!
