Sorry, we're behind again, but, here is a new theme for the next week-and-a-half to get us back on track. Anyhow, road signs are our focus this week, or perhaps not the focus, depending on how you want to portray them.

Enjoy!

Road sign from Douentza to Timbuktu - Mali, although the road ends at the Niger River which you have to cross over in a river ferry in order to reach Timbuktu.

A common sight in the Israeli desert, you don't want to run into a camel with your car. Believe me, the camel is stronger.

Anyone for a nap? This highway will make you sleepy.

This was taken in Oregon County, Missouri. Highway M continues north to Rover, while Highway P travels east to Alton. Let's hope there's no MP's after you to put you into the brig!

Not strictly a road sign, more a country path sign. Sorry about the language but that's what it says!

I have been waiting for the chance to post this for ages.

Did anything of mine inspire the theme? Just wondering?
Absolute classic dog sign there, maybe the direct approach does work better.

Here is my first intact red triangle sign found, although we had millions they started going in 1964 while I waited till 2008 before it occurred to me to go for a picture and took another two years to find one like this. The first had a corner missing but besides lacking paint this one is perfect.

Whereabouts is that sign, ren? Is it near where you live?
