Our drive through central Texas and the Hill Country a few days ago provided some good fun and much needed break, though our destination was a memorial service for a friend who died very prematurely.
Kathryn noticed these odd signs first. I’m not sure of the purpose. These are in the information sign mode, the yellow diamonds used to warn drivers of hazards ahead.
The hazard? “Church.”
One might imagine these signs are posted to warn drivers on Sunday. About noon, when these churches’ services let out, the roads around them may be filled with people who are only too happy to go meet Jesus right now — so watch out! and drive accordingly.
Texas offers all sorts of strange things to those willing to drive the state’s highways, and see ’em.
