Angels Cross Here
My sister, Crash, texted this picture that was ostensibly taken near Appalachian State University by someone she knows.
Assuming this is an actual sign, and one of us isn’t being bamboozled, what the heck does it mean?
The guess from her friend was, “Watch out for flying, drinking, hula hooping college drunks.” At first, I thought that was a bit redundant. I mean, don’t all drunks hula hoop?
My take was, “Angels cross here, so don’t throw boomerangs at their knees by accident.”
Another possibility, “It’s best to walk in erratic 3/4 circles so raptors won’t land on your shoulder.”
Any other ideas?
By the way, my Spring Membership Drive is still going on. Yesterday, I snagged one more subscription! Only 5.988888 million or so to go to reach my goal! I’d be much obliged if you are a new reader and commit to a subscription!

Fred Astaire is buried here?
That’s a great one!
How about – ‘good place to snag an angel here’?
If all your subscribers created 5 new e-mail addresses at places like hotmail and yahoo, and then subscribed with each of those addresses, imagine how far your numbers would reach? 🙂
I have been looking for a place to snag an angel so I might need to go hunt down that sign!
As for your e-mail idea, I hadn’t thought of that! That would certainly help me reach my goal much faster. Of course, I don’t really know why I have that goal in the first place…
I have no idea.
Seriously? I thought for sure you would have something to suggest!
I know! The hoola hoop thing messes all me stuff up. Do you know what it really is supposed to be?
I honestly don’t! But now I am dying to know. I may have to go visit my sister to get to the bottom of this. She is probably hoping for that anyway…
She probably planted it with that in mind.
Hey, feel free to fix any errors I make with my spelling/grammar. 😉
I spelled hula hoop wrong, but in fairness…it sounds the way I spelled it. Stupid English language.
I almost spelled it that way, too. And I was too lazy to look it up, so I decided it didn’t matter. Laziness dominates many of my unilateral decisions.
that is one strange sign…… wow! We have no idea what it means…. 🙂
Sigh. I was really hoping someone from your group would know!
Ginger says it is a scorecard of all those who did not make it across the parking lot there…. muwahahahah
Is that a dangerous spot? Have a lot of people died there?? That’s a weird sign!
I know! I have no idea about the sign placement. I feel that this requires a more intensive investigation.
I tried to think of a creative suggestion but yours are the best!
I kind of like Rich’s Fred Astaire suggestion!
Ummm…. “Beware, truly weird hallucinations ahead”? Or maybe, “Don’t eat the mushrooms”?
The mushroom one sounds like a logical warning.
how about “You take your life in your hands by crossing here.”
In that case, you would think we would see more of those!
“Check it…I scored some stencils at Goodwill.”
Sorry, didn’t mean to be anonymous!
LOL! That’s a good one!
Guardian angels working here. Stay within the outlined path to receive Devine guidance. For best reception kneel, making ears inline with halo.
Now I really must go to that spot!
I thought it meant that you can only cross that street if you hula hoop while wearing those dinky fairy wings. I’d never be allowed to cross – I can’t remember how to hula hoop! Crash is awesome, by the way!
Gosh, don’t tell Crash she is awesome. She will start texting me even weirder stuff at all hours of the day!
I want to know what it means and I also want to know why it even exists!
Me too! I tried uploading it to Google to do an image search and nothing came up. Of course, it could be photoshopped, I guess. But I prefer to think not.
Glad to hear the Spring Membership Drive is off to a rip roaring start! It looks like some guy trying to pick up a girl with his hula hooping skills while showing off his angelic yet social personality.
Bella and DiDi
Well, that would certainly win me over!
Isn’t it obvious? Man disoriented after discovery of headless parrot on shoulder 🙂
May the force be with you!
