Portland Words and Signs

(29 photos in gallery) I was fortunate this past weekend to join in the wedding celebration of very dear friends, in Portland, Oregon. I’d booked my flight months ago, prior to my health issues, and worried I’d not be able to attend. But, luckily, I made the trip. Not only were all of the wedding events fun, and very special, I had some extra time for touring Portland. It’s a really awesome city, with lots of public transportation and yet also very walkable, and the weather was blissfully cooler than Southern California. There was even a bit of rain! While I’m branching out from our usual Southern California blogging region, I thought you might be interested seeing the sights of Portland, starting off with words and signs I found humorous, ironic, or interesting. Most are self-explanatory, but I added a few captions here and there.~SueBee

    A great set of signs. I am glad that you were well enough to go. I especially liked the sign for teachers for some reason.

      Hmmm, you don’t suppose being a retired teacher has anything to do with your preference?!

    Very nice! The town has a sense of humor at least…
