Signs of the times enliven travel

This would be a nice headline nowadays. The Mesabi Daily News is a real newspaper in the Iron Range country of northern Minnesota, but for some reason wasn't able to produce an edition that day in 2017, other than a few copies to let readers know there was "No News."

"Everyone is a comedian," is often heard in casual conversation, as is, "There is a writer/artist in all of us."

When you are on the road, thought-provoking sayings and downright laughs often come from painted and printed signs you see along the way. There are certainly many amusing billboards, but they are usually created by professional advertising people. While entertaining, these seldom rate stopping to take a photo. The signs we like are hand painted and are as likely to be along a dirt road as an interstate highway.
