Signs - Signs of the times

For other signs from around the world go to Tom's blog.

In these tough and insane times for all of us



I'm trying to keep cheerful,



to take it easy,



to feel gratitude for our health, our home and garden, and the technology that enables us to keep in contact with family near and far...




and dream 

of the good times 


that will surely come back soon.
Keep safe ūüíď.

    1. Yes, people have the choice at a cost to have a personalized number plate. You can also have number plates from Sports clubs, hospitals and other associations.

  4. Essas matrículas são o máximo! Nos EUA também se podem personalizar, mas cá em Portugal somos mais rígidos com isso! :P
    Estes tempos vão passar e se todos fizermos a nossas parte, vai ser muito mais rápido e com menos vítimas.
    Fica bem e protege-te. Beijinhos!

  7. Province of Ontario allows "vanity" plates and there are some good ones.
    Some can be hard to figure out.

    I am enjoying bloggers' posts and the comments as a way to keep up with what is going on in the world. So much better than the news.

  14. I would be hard pressed to find so many vanity plates. Perhaps it is more of a fad (?) in Australia. One certainly sees them here, but not frequently.

    1. Not sure about being a fad, I've been here 13 years and they've always existed. They are not too expensive, and I guess a lot of people like to be different. Thanks David.

  15. O meu vizinho tem a matrícula Wo 28 no seu Porsche.

    Pagou por ela 1 milh√£o de patacas.

    1. Oh really, that's why I never saw such interesting plates in NSW. Thanks Jim.

  18. You have truly found some lovely car plates, Sami. If this forced hiatus goes on for awhile, I fear many of us won't be able to get out to find signs and murals. You found some really lovely and POSITIVE ones, dear.
