Next week "time"




I think I have found some 'unique signs' in my hunting trip this past week. One is a 'sign of the times' type sign --


Personally, these roller/shoes look like a lot of fun...but it's probably like a huge concern in stores that are filled with glass and ceramic. Kinda like the idiom "a bull in a china shop".

Then, I saw this one at one of my favorite stores....


...and it turned out to be one favorite for the day. Who can turn down searching the aisles for things that are 90 per cent off the regular price?!! Not me!!!


Thirdly, this one is me! Definitely me - - -




And last but not least; in fact the most 'unique' for the week [at least for my blog entry that is]...in the mystery section of the used book store, these signs hang from the ceiling. I thought it was clever. And they reminded me of a particular game that the kids and I played when they were young. [Oh and Irene cheated at that game, for sure for sure ---I swear she won 8 out of 10 games we played] Can you guess what the game is?

In the book store's mystery section:

Yesterday I posted about Bud and I thinking of going to see "Baby Mama" at the theater? And a few left comments asking for me to let them know how it was. It's a really cute, sweet movie. [except for Sigourney Weaver's part...she's just icky! -imho in ALL movies. LOL] Anyway, there is tasteful comedy, a budding romance [not between the two women]...a cute doorman...lots of things in this flick to make you feel good. Lots of smiles...a bit of hardy laughter [the part where the blond girl being taken to the delivery room says it feels like "I'm pooping knives!" ---Only a gal who delivered kids knows the feeling -lol]. And, a great ending!! [actually if you want my opinion: the last 20-30 minutes are the best!] All in all maybe a B+ movie. But what with the cost of gasoline and ticket prices, I'd say wait to see it on a Blockbuster rental. Cheaper, but still well worth watching.

  16. Of all the signs there, I love the 90% OFF the MOST!!!
    Who can resist that sort of sign?!?

    It's RARE to see 90% :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. I could probably play Cluedo without the board, the number of times I have played it. Great photos.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Happy Saturday Hootin Anne

    My is up early today for me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Those were great SIGNS!!!!! As for your game,I don't have a CLUE! Hahahaha!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Miss Scarlett (liked her dress) in the library (liked the books) with the candlestick (seemed the least gory for some reason) -- I only know the game as "Clue" -- not the "Cluedo" others mention here. Oh, looked it up and original 1949 English version was called Cluedo -- Parker Bros. market it in N. America as "Clue." So did I win the prize??????? Or am I the prize LOL?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the signs for all the books with knife, rope etc. Very unique way of advertising :)

  22. Those are all great signs for the theme but I don't have a guess about the game. Maybe I had a deprived childhood, ha.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those were unique signs... I would have loved being with you at Holly Lobby..the game was either I spy or jump rope? just guessing, here. If I was younger, I would just have to get some of those shoes with the wheel in the heels... Good Post!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You found some great signs this week! This is fun.

    Mindy & Moe

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh fun! We used to play that a lot. I wonder what happened to our set?
    Anyway, I say it was Colonel Mustard in the library with the candlestick!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. First off, I agree with those skate shoes. They seem to be very dangerous to me.

    Secondly, I love the skinny girl sign. :)

    Lastly...I LOVE the game Clue!!! I played it ALL OF THE TIME when I was younger. I was quite good at it.
    I'd love to play again.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great signs!

    Oh, I used to love playing Cluedo - Miss Peacock looked just like my favourite junior-school teacher!

    ReplyDelete
  35. 90% off... that's tempting!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh I LOVE that last set from the book shop :) Happy photo Anni! And thanks so much for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sooooo... did you find anything of INTEREST for 90% OFF? I would love searching too - but usually the stuff is just plain JUNK! Occasionally a "treasure" though... did YOU find a treasure?

    The kids and I used to play CLUE for HOURS on end too! I don't think EITHER of my boys EVER cheated at that one though! (they were the two that WOULD have cheated - IF cheating was going to happen!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Anni, those are all great. I don't have a CLUE why the mystery section has thoe photos up all over. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Some nice signs for the photohunt indeed!

    I just thought after I read your post that I should have dug up some of the signs from japan. There are some pretty funny ones in there!

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a fun collection of signs!!! I especially like the one about the 'skinny gal' within that can be soothed by 'cookies' ;--)

    I've decided to participate for the first time today with a sign I've shared previously but that cracks me up whenever I see it.

    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  41. You have some good signs here Ms. Hoot.

    I'm confused with your military and Obama support on your sidebar tho.

    Hi Sarge! Well, I don't talk politics, sorry. All I can say is that with all candidates there are questions unanswered for each!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I enjoyed your pictures very much & thought they fit the theme perfectly--the ones in the book store remind me of the game "Clue" I wasn't so imaginative this week so I just did a post on fat cats :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. LOL! I love the Clue signs!

    I did a Photo Hunt, too! I'd love you to visit!

    ReplyDelete

  47. It's almost like they're giving away the items with those 90% off. :)
    Happy weekend!

  48. What a clever book shoppe ~ I haven't a Clue who dunnit... (loved that game)! The skinny girl sign is hilarious. Good job! Happy hunting and thanX for stopping by.

    ReplyDelete
  49. We used to love playing clue. I don't think my kids played it much, butI played it as a kid. It has been around for a VERY long time, you know.

    Thanks for the movie review. I may add it to our Netflix queue. DH will wonder why.

    Clue!! I haven't played that in ages. And we had the Old School version of the game when I was growing up. Where the rooms had little floor plans with pieces of furniture drawn in and the game pieces were actually made of lead.

    I was so disappointed when the new game came out. It seemed so cheap somehow, when compared to the original version.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like the idea of those shoes with wheels, they look like fun, I would love to visit the book shop.

    ReplyDelete
  52. My favorite is the "No Shoes with Wheels" sign!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love the shoes with wheels sign. I'd like to try those shoes but I'm afraid I'm not as graceful as the kids are :) Love the signs for Clue!! I still like playing that game.

    Mines up over at Flo's Place

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh the CLUES for Clue! I loved that!...I miss you too sweetie...things are just so up in the air...Thanks for visiting my hunt today...I am still in my jammies at 2:00pm lol...but then I remembered its SATURDAY.Photo Hunt day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I used to love to play Clue, too. It was Miss Scarlet in the Conservatory with the Knife. lol

    ReplyDelete
  56. Forgot to mention - my grandson has the "Heelies." I asked his parents if they had all at once gone stupid when they bought them. He is only allowed to wear them where appropriate - no school, church, etc where they could become a problem. He's pretty good with them. I know for sure I'd fall down!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Ha! It is Clue and I have played it with the boys since they were very young. I also played it with Michelle. Brandon got a Junior Clue game from Santa when he was about 3 years old. We've been playing ever since. When he was about 8, Santa brought him the regualar clue. We have to watch Jordan. He likes to cheat too. He is addicted to winning. LOL

    The movie sounds fun. I will wait for it to come out on DVD.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Blessings,
    Mary

  58. All great signs. I love the used book store signs. I know the game as Clue. My daughter wants some of those shoes with wheels but I won't let you get any! I'm such a mean mom. lol

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh I enjoyed those signs... especially the one about the skinny girl.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I didn't play clue very often as a child, maybe once or twice so still don't know the rules. My kids have played it much more than I. I love the skinny girl sign. The first one reminded me of a sign that was by our pond when we moved here. The people had been to Australia and I am sure they are more common there, but here it was a weird sign. It had a swimmer crossed out and an alligator below. It fell down and I have it somewhere and would update my post but the family took the camera on vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  61. My favorite sing is the one with the no wheels on shoes. That is a constant complaint that I have these days. I can't stand it when I kid flys by on those dumb Heelis. It cracks me up that places have signs. And of course the Clue pieces...such a great classic! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Great photos - I like them all! 90% discount - I've never seen that! I wouldn't pass the opportunity either.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Who would have thought there would be so much choice at the mall. Great shots for the theme Anni. Have a good weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great shots! I hate shopping with all those kids wearing the roller shoes... the amount of time our toddler has been knocked off his feet by some kid who's not paying attention as s/he is zooming around the corner of a flipping shopping isle - ARGH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thanks for stopping by. Come back anytime. The game would be Clue.

    Have a happy day

    ReplyDelete
  66. Very very cool shots. Love 'em all... especially the first (shoe) sign. Amazing sign of the times!!!

  71. I know that game!! We got it one Christmas and I play it with my kids---they're the perfect age.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Is it still called CLUEDO? Love the tiger theme :-)

    ReplyDelete
  73. (I tried to leave a comment this morning, but got an error. I hope it works this time.)

    I never personally played the game Clue, but can still recognize the signs from pop culture. That is great that you could photograph those.

    I really like the first sign also. I wish I would see those around here, especially in stores and shopping malls.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  76. I love the bookshop signs :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Those are great for today! Love those 90% off signs! We see a lot of those "No wheelie" signs, too -- it's a little chaotic in stores when kids are zooming around on those.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Great take on today's theme with your sign! I love the 90% off sign!

    ReplyDelete
  79. These are great! Love the "Clue" signs in the mystery section of the bookstore, too. :D

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi Anni

    Love the signs...especially the one about the thin girl inside of me. I can certainly relate to that...sigh.

    Those signs for the bookshop are rather...um...different. Just depends on how you like your murder, I guess :-).

    ReplyDelete
  81. i have no idea what cluedo means but i like the skinny girl sign the most :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. That's an awful lot of signs - and very interesting ones too! I only have two - and that's because they were standing next to each other, otherwise I'd have only one LOL!

    Have a happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love the mystery section.

    ps. Thanks for making some changes to your blog. I'm on dial up and your blog used to make my system crash. It's much easier for me to visit now.
