This Is All I Got


This is all I have for you today.  It will make me not wait so long between posts.

I've been going through stacks of papers in my study.  I found this old poster.  I was told it was referring to railroad cars.  My mind went there when I bought it.
Thought I could frame it and sell it but misplaced it and haven't seen it for more than twenty years.
Would look great in a pub or bar as they are called in the US.

    1. Even worse Child, this is containers of old stuff I brought to the city from the farm. I hate this kind of work. So much of it is going in the trash, but I have to find a place to put the stuff that remains.

    1. I remember when I saw it at a flea market and wondering what in the world it was for. I didn't know much about trains. It is old.

  4. I think, if I had a big stack of papers I hadn't sorted through for years, I'd just trash the whole thing without looking through it.

    1. Ellen, I worry it might contain some necessary information and lots of it is old formulas for mediums etc. and pages of artwork instructions and writing stuff. But you are right. I've come to decide if it's stored away, I don't need it anymore.

    1. Yes, the tiny house people have it made. I think I'll sell it on one of my selling sites.

  6. I saw that sign stapled to a freight car one time, years ago, and asked and asked and asked. After many years of inquiry, the most promising answer was not to send the car up the hump hill. I let it go.

  7. That's so funny Joanne. Glad to know it was related to trains. I wonder if they put up signs saying No Hobos. Nowadays all I see is graffiti all over them.

    1. I sure did when I bought it. I thought it was a really funny thing to write on a poster.

  9. Hilarious! I am with you on the paper pile! I have a shredder next to me when I work and you would not believe all those trash bags!!! But I am determined and try to do a small bit at least once a week. It's like living all the worst things in your life in reverse! Sheesh! But then there is the odd photo you forgot or something else to make you smile... And you leave the best comments! Thanks for the lift!
