One Hundred Fifty-one - "And, the Signs Said. . ."

Thanks for hanging around for another month, here are the thirty logos/signs from the month of May. . .


Yesterday's challenge was a law office, the C H referred to the lawyer's name. . .

Coming up with law office or something similar were EMO, Mariann, Phil, Michael K., Milt, Beth, Joani, and Mike Di.

Still working on June's theme and the first one is due to be posted tomorrow - no pressure!

One Hundred Fifty - "And, the Sign Says..."

Finishing up the month on a very positive note, we have EMO, Phil, Mariann, Beth, Michael K., Tony, Peyton, Milt, Joani, and Mike Di coming up with a trucking company! Happy Wedding Day to blog follower, Beth! She will be exchanging vows with a great guy, Matt, this weekend.



Last sign for the month. . .



Don't let me down!

One Hundred Forty-nine - "And, the Sign Says..."

What a great variety of intelligent guesses you forwarded on #148 - a park, campgrounds, trail, recycle, clean water, and holistic center! We even had a few who were thinking landscapist which was the closest to the actual service - a tree farm! Kudos go out to Mariann, Beth, EMO, Tony, Mike P., Phil, Peyton, Michelle, Joani, Joyce, and Mike Di.


Well, it's almost time to say goodbye to another month's of challenges as May nears an end. This should be an easy one - I liked the graphics on it. . .

One Hundred Forty-eight - "And, the sign Says..."

Liquor store or a wine shop or a packie as we called them in Boston. Scott's Fine Wine and Spirits, it was! Nice going Phil, Mariann, Joyce, Milt, Michael K., Tony, Mike P., Peyton, and Joani.




Great looking signage for #148 but it'll take some luck to nail what it is they do here. Our esteemed panel of judges will accept any reasonable answers. . .

One Hundred Forty-seven - "And, the Sign Says..."

We had three detectives out there who were able to solve the service as "car repair." The speedometer and the odometer should have helped. Well done Beth, Mariann, and Michael K.


And, it was Fast Eddie's Automotive at that!

To help you celebrate the end of the long weekend and a return to the work place. . .

One Hundred Forty-six - "And, the Sign Says..."

Is it because it's a holiday weekend or was the logo so difficult some of you didn't bother to fathom a guess?  Mariann, Peyton, Michael K., Phil, and Beth figured out it was a bookstore with some even knowing it was called, "Paperback Junction!"


I thought it was  a pretty clever way of promoting themselves!

For those still hanging around this three-day weekend, I have this gem for you - what would be the service provided??

One Hundred Forty-five - "And, the Sign Says..."

So Mallory Headsets are quite popular, who knew? some of you (Beth, Mariann, Phil, Peyton, Tony, Michael K., Joani, Mike Di., and Joyce) did! 


I don't think the rest of the month's signs are too difficult but I can try. 


I take that back, this business has a very clever logo!

Friday, May 24, 2013

One Hundred Forty-four - "And, the Sign Says..."

Happy 4th to my #1 Fan as she completes the fourth year of her daily paintings - 1461 paintings! 

Obviously all of you can't pass up a logo for food as everyone knew Domino's - even our West Coast follower, Joani! She was joined by Phil, Mariann, Vicky, Peyton, Tony, Michael K., Mike Di, Joyce, Carol, Steph, Michelle, and Milt.



Shouldn't be too hard but I did like the graphics. . .


Thursday, May 23, 2013

One Hundred Forty-three - "And, the Sign Says..."

For those of you who looked a little closer and saw that it was an auto transport company - Michael K., Michelle, Peyton, Beth, Milt, Joani, and Joyce - well done. As for the trucking company guessers - Phil, Tony, and Mike Di. a valiant effort!


For being such good sports, here is an easy one for you. . .


No drooling on the keyboard, please!

One Hundred Forty-two - "And, the Sign Says..."


mpt is a family fun facility on Rte. 18 in East Bridgewater. Well done, EMO, Tony, Peyton, Phil, Michelle, Beth, Mariann, Steph, and Joani!
I don't think I'm sold on the name of the place - More Play Time.

Let's get some of you MPT - More Picture Time. . .



Now, this shouldn't be that hard, right??

One Hundred Forty-one - "And, the Sign Says..."

Very interesting answers from resort to motel to landscaper but only Mike P., Mike Di., Joani and Joyce nailed it with...



For today's it's about the images - what is done here and not what  the letters mpt stand for...

One Hundred Forty - "And, the Sign Says..."

Good news and bad news! First the good news, everyone who responded will have their Blogging License kept intact. Bad news, only ten of the following answered. Maybe the others didn't want to risk lost privileges with the wrong guess??? Michelle, Phil, Beth, EMO, Carol, Michael K., Joani, Mike Di., Tony, Milt, Peyton, and Mike P. read the logo correctly as a school of dance.



With your licenses secure, let your best guess make its way to my email. . .



No very challenging, eh???

One Hundred Thirty-nine - "And, the Sign Says..."

Snell is the local company whose business has boomed with these Title Nine verifications. So he primarily does excavations! Well done, my little burrowing bloggers - Milt, Joyce, EMO, Michelle, Phil, Peyton, Carol, Tony, Steph, Michael K., Joani, Pete, Beth, and Mike Di!


So, what's next, you wonder???


Anyone who misses this one will have their Blogging License revoked!!

One Hundred Thirty-eight - "And, the Sign Says..."

Bishop's Boxing offers fitness training in boxing, karate, pilates, etc. No I am not a member as I am still trying to lift things up and put them down at PF (#127). Almost a clean sweep as Phil, Carol, Michael K., Mariann, Milt, Mike Di., and Mike P all recognized the boxing gloves. 



For CXXXVIII (I just love any opportunity to show off my knowledge of Roman Numerals). . .


Just what service do they provide here???

Friday, May 17, 2013

One Hundred Thirty-seven - "And, the Sign Says..."

Well, Mark does TOWING at his place of business. I thought it was very clever of the way they hooked the "s" on at the end of his name. Two of you (Michael K. and Marianne) came up with the actual name - Mark's Towing. A few others (Peyton, EMO, Joyce, and Mike Di.) figured out it was towing while Milt and Tony saw a crane. We won't even discuss Phil's guess of a tailor?


Here's an easy one. . .


And, one week from today, my inspiration for these challenges, my daughter, will be celebrating her FOURTH year of painting and posting a picture EVERY day! She's at 1,453 and counting! Got a minute? Check her out at: http://lisadaria.blogspot.com/

One Hundred Thirty-six - "And, the Sign Says..."

I am sooooo proud of you as you are becoming much better at treading the logo clues. most of you figured it had to be a restaurant (EMO and Michelle) or a bakery (Milt and Joani). A few others saw a little bit of an Italian look in the chef (EMO, Milt, and Mike Di.). And, one of you (Steph) was able to identify the actual restaurant - Johnny Macaroni's on Rte. 106. I left out those who thought omelets or souffl├ęs.



My personal favorite of all of the signs that I have seen. Small operation but impressive signage. What service does Mark provide?? Yes, I know there is not a Mark's in your immediate area!

One Hundred Thirty-five - "And, the Sign Says..."

Well most of you recognized the mortar and pestle and came up with a drug store or pharmacy. We did have one guess for champagne! But two of you - Mike Di. and Beth knew the logo belonged to Walgreen's. 


Our resident pharmacists are Michelle, Milt, Michael K., Carol, EMO, Joyce, and Joani.

Another cutie here - obvious but cute. . .

One Hundred Thirty-four - "And, the Sign Says..."

Cute kids on #133 - as many of you figured out it was Jack and Jill! Reading the clues correctly were EMO, Peyton, Michelle, Michael K., Mike P., Mike Di., Joyce, Pete, Tony, and Phil.




And, what do I have next??? Very common business in these parts - not sure about Oregon though. At the very least the service provided but expecting the name of the company as well. And, I know the sign could use some sprucing up.

One Hundred Thirty-three - "And, the Sign Says. . ."

Hoagies, heroes, grinders, subs - D'Angelo's has them. I thought it was pretty clever of them to make the "l" in their name a sandwich. I hope you, too, are taking a closer look at some of the signs as you drive. Clued in for #132 were Mike P., Milt, EMO, Michelle, Michael K., Tony, Joyce, Phil, and Mike Di. A special shout out to Pete who has other more pressing things on his plate these days. Thanks for hanging in there, Pete!


Let's have some fun with this one. Based on their signage, what is the NAME of this business? Look again, it's not THAT hard. . .

One Hundred Thirty-two - "And, the Sign Says..."

Well, AT&T certainly has made its mark on consumers as everyone (save one) who fathomed a guess knew it as AT&T! That has to be a first. As if you didn't know. . .



Mike P., Phil, Milt, Carol, Deana, Michael K., Joyce, Pete, Mike Di., Michelle, Tony, Joani, and Peyton recognized the logo.


D'angelo's has changed its signage and its service in recent years. This is one of the older ones - what do they sell? HINT: It's not lighting!

One Hundred Thirty-one - "And, the Sign Says..."

Well #130 had the most creative answers to date. Here is the logo again:

"Naked Man Music Store""Leonardo’s Guitars"
"DaVinci Music?""Nudist rock band""Leonardo's music shop""Guitar store or music store with an invitation "Come on in! We play music in the nude."
(Names were withheld to protect your reputation. . .)

We did have a few guess a music store or guitar shop. He calls himself the "Guitar Doctor!" And, he does traditional archery as well - hopefully fully clothed!



Let's see if I can bring back a sense of normalcy to my challenge with this one:


Can you name the company???

One Hundred Thirty - "And, the Sign Says..."

We have some very sharp people (EMO, Carol, Pete, Peyton, and Beth) out there in Blogville who noticed more than the animals when they saw the eye surrounding them. The clever signage is actually an Animal Eye Specialist facility! They must be good at their craft as I have not seen ONE pet with glasses - I'm guessing they've been fitted with contacts!
The judges did accept Pet Day Care (Mike P.) and Pet Watching (Mike Di). Vets just didn't go far enough.


 See the large eye around the pets?

For today's we have another very clever logo. Look at what the owner had put into his sign!

One Hundred Twenty-nine - "And, the Sign Says..."

By the looks of the computer in this logo, I'd say the business has been around for quite some time. Phil, EMO, Mike P., Michelle, Joani, and Mike Di all came up with computer services or similar words. Here is the complete logo. . .



The small in-the-home business is on one of the back streets of Bridgewater.

So, what about #129?



How specific can you be about this business? I thought it was pretty unique. . .

One Hundred Twenty-eight - "And, the Sign Says..."

Planet Fitness it was! As a member, I have no problem putting things down - it's the picking up part! Good call for Phil, Deana, Michelle, Michael K., Mike Di, and Joyce. I thought this would be so easy with their ad on TV and their hundreds of locations.


Let's try this cute sign, I think it should not be too challenging for you. . .

One Hundred Twenty-seven - "And, the Sign Says..."

So proud of you, except for the smart aleck who thought it might be him making his first communion, the rest of you managed to see something in the realm of Martial Arts (Mike P., Phil, Steph, Joani, Peyton, Mike Di., and Joyce)! Not sure what Wai Kru means???



An iconic logo featured across America (which should include Rhode Island) as well as seen on numerous TV ads. Just what do they do here????
