Back in the day (and I think the day was around 1971) a group of Canadian musicians called ‘Five Man Electrical Band’ charted a song named “Signs”. It was a rebellious sort of song blasting being told what to do…”do this, don’t do that. Can’t you read the signs?”
They were not singing about astrological signs or moon signs for planting.
The signs I enjoy reading these days are those changeable, thought provoking, frequently humorous observations on the human condition.
So if you have the authority over a changeable sign (or even if you do not) feel free to borrow any of these just as I did.
