Sunday's Silly Sign (Photo) May 15, 2011: Return A Road
Could be they've had some sort of road rustlers up in the mountains.
You know, scoundrels who come and steal your highways in the middle of the night.
No questions asked. We'll give you amnesty. Just come clean and return a road here.
This sign is located just outside Okinawa's Quasi-National Park.
It's way up north in the mountains about as far as you can go on this island.
The sign, I think, was put there to tell city slickers how to get down off the mountain.
See, if you don't take the road that returns, living on an island, and all, you could go the wrong way.
You could wind up goin' around and around the island and keep coming back to the same place over and over again.
People who live in the country don't need silly signs telling them how to get off the mountain.
We just follow any road until we see the ocean.
Then, we turn left, or right. It all depends on if we want to get farther or closer to home.
Shucks. Look real close at the photo of this silly sign.
It looks like it used to have an arrow pointing both ways and somebody taped-over one end !
Maybe, next time I go up there I'll fix their sign for free.
Pull the green tape off and cover the "A" so it wouldn't be a silly sign anymore.
We could have arrows pointing both ways.
Then city people will be driving around and around the island acting like they're lost again !
