We visited Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois last week and took the back roads instead of the Interstate. Stopped in every little (and not so little) community we passed through on the way. Lots to see everywhere we went.
Among our favorite moments was the discovery of this burglar alarm atop a bank building that's been repurposed as a Chinese restaurant.
If you can decipher this sign, I'd love to know what it says . . . or is trying to say.
I'm sure this is a neon sign designed to be visible at night, but it is rather sweet looking in the daylight.
I'm always interested in news about Brazil.
. . . and Illinois signage. This was in the Hope and Anchor Pub where we stopped for lunch in Rockford. (Though I think the word is traditionally spelled "bollocks").
