Personal Messages

There is no doubt that signs are powerful means of communication. While most provide us with the means to navigate roads or for advertising purposes; some signs are very personal. This sign has been up in Sabattus since 2001, the year Dale Earnhardt was killed in a wreck, racing in the Daytona 500. The flip side of the sign paid homage to the victims of 9/11 in patriotic tribute. Alas, the 9/11 message was removed after a few years and returned to letting drivers know that it was time to buy more canning supplies.  It's anyone's guess if the "DALE EARNHARDT HIS LEGEND LIVES ON," message will ever come down.

I've been enjoying your signs and comments. Have you ever seen the sign on 125 in Bowdoin at the old well house? I try to avert my eyes, it is usually so gloomy and hateful. I would like to see his sign come down as it is like a blight on the soul.
