This week's sign . . .

Since I've moved (last July) I have noticed that I'm not in Kansas anymore. Things move a little different, feel a little different - are a little different. For the most part, I like it here a lot. But there are times when I find myself saying, "hmmmm." For instance, when I notice that there's a hitching post in the parking lot at my bank. Not something I was used to in the Baltimore/Washington suburbs. But here ... hey, the Amish and Mennonite have to park the buggy somewhere!

I have noticed that there are places where English seems to be a second language. From time to time I'm going to post proof of that assertion. For example, this is a sign that was hanging on the gym door in a local elementary school. I was there for a basketball practice and noticed it as I was leaving. Please, remember - this is a school. You know, one of those places where they teach English.
I took the picture with my phone and its a little blurry so here's a transcription: "No one is allow in hallway unless they are using the restroom/water foundtion."
Please tell me their kidding. Please?
BTW, I took the picture about 6 weeks ago. It's still there.
