I went to see a movie at the Star Cinema movie theater on 3rd Ave. last night, so I took the opportunity to take a couple of pictures of the vintage neon sign on the building.
This is just a small portion of the sign — I’ve posted more views (both day and night) of the building over the years.
Jon Goodman spotted this blast from the past at the old Porter & Lau building on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Marion St.:
Thought this was interesting. Checking out the Porter & Lau closeout and saw this old labeling machine with their logo on the tags.
It is definitely interesting. And check out that old school phone number — RO 9-2194. Trippy. Thanks, Jon!
I thought this little sign was cute. It reads: “Beware! Trespassers will be composted.” I found it on a birdhouse in a window display at Accents Northwest on 3rd Ave. It fits Oregon rather well, as we are rather environmentally friendly around here.
I passed by this sign at the New Life Foursquare Church on 1st Ave. yesterday, and had to double back and get a photo. It’s great the church is hip to the lingo of today’s youth, but to actually say “Church LOL”… I mean, laughing out loud about church? It seems rather odd to me.
Huh? What was that? Oh. It’s actually “Church 101,” you say? One zero one. I see. Well, thank you for pointing that out.
Then I guess it wouldn’t do to point out it the second line of the sign also looks like a person with their arms up in the air because they are drowning, so I’ll just keep quiet on that.
It’s the first day of school here in Stayton. So be on the look out for various children of various ages walking to and from school with sad, forlorn looks on their faces.
This photo was taken yesterday in front of Stayton Elementary School on 1st Ave. Would it be considered ironic that I have trouble spelling the word ‘elementary’? I can never tell.
I can’t tell you how relieved I was to see this sticker for the Zombie Outbreak Response team in a car window a couple of days ago. Potential zombie outbreaks have kept me up at night, worrying about how I would be able to survive such a catastrophic event. I can’t run very fast, after all. But now I know there will be a team of zombie fighters out there, doing their part to take down those evil, brain-obsessed zombies. Thank goodness.
This was spotted in a parking lot along 1st Ave.
Also, that’s my head in the photo. Dang reflections.
