The Second Tuesday of Every Week

Several months after I moved in here, I found this metal sign stuck behind one of the old church pews in front of the cellar. In case you can’t read it, it says:


FRIENDS WELCOME

RELATIVES BY APPOINTMENT

APPOINTMENTS SCHEDULED ON THE
SECOND TUESDAY OF EVERY WEEK

I’m pretty sure the sign belonged to the immediate past previous owners.

I like it, despite how unwelcoming it sounds! Because, well, sometimes one does feel that way about certain people! Not ALL relatives, of course, but…. So I put the sign out.

Dear Relatives,

You know who you are.

Love,
Suzanne

    hahahaha. I love it. And yes, they SHOULD know whom they are, but then if they were the kind to think that this was meant for THEM, they wouldn’t be the kind that would NEED a sign like this! True?

    Ha! I know how you feel Suzanne. I have a welcome sign that spins around to say “Go Away” on my porch. :snoopy:

    I need a sign JUST like that for a certain paternal relative of mine who just ‘pops in’ upto four days a week. His timing is impeccable and he just knows when I’m in the middle of doing something that I’d love to finish (and not have to put the kettle on). HoHum… Ya don’t get to pick ya relatives.

    What a beautiful kitty!

    The sign reads “Catables” or “kittytables”

    That is the best sign ever! There’s a reason my husband and I live far away from most of our relatives. ;) I love my mother, but if we lived close to one another, we’d end up HATING each other!

    My Sweet Granny had a saying; Company and Fish both stink after three days.

    Oh, I totally need a sign like that! I have an unwelcome relative who enjoys popping in just to see if she can catch you with your pants down. :shocked:

    My door sign says:
    “Dogs Welcome – People Tolerated”..perfect! :woof: :snoopy:

    I’m going to rummage up an old board or something to make this sign – the message is a perfect fit!

    And of course having a kitty named Killer next to the sign adds some extra oomph to it doesn’t it?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
