AtoZ Challenge 2021 – Signs Signs – The T Signs #atozchallenge

I have fallen way behind on my A to Z posts this year due to added work and travel, but I will get them all!  This year I am doing signs that I have seen across the country.  This post will feature signs associated with the Letter T. ENJOY THE RIDE!

We can’t avoid signs.  They are everywhere.  Advertisements, informational signs, directional signs, business signs and, sometimes, even humorous and fun signs.  Each of my posts in this years’ challenge will feature a hodgepodge of signs I have come across in my travels.  In most cases, I’ll also note where they were taken.  Some were actually inside of shops or otherwise, so not all will have locations.  I hope you enjoy the remainder of my posts as get to them in May.

Time is of the essence so let’s start off with a few Post Offices that are in T-Towns.

Taylor, Nebraska Post Office
Texarkana – State Line by Post Office

And then there are the motels….some of these are pretty old.  Love old neon signs!
