Dreams and other people

Dreams and other people

Don’t ya just hate it when someone else takes your dream and makes it a reality? I made many a wooden routed sign in my day, and always thought of setting up just this sort of rig for marketing them.

The idea entered my dream file when seeing just such a shop on the waterfront in Seattle back in the ’60’s. The decades have erased the shop owner’s name….nope, here it is, “Omar’s Signs” all hand routed and free-hand to boot.

So here someone, presumably on San Juan Island, has done just what I wanted to do. Oh well, I didn’t inherit the title “Jimmy Dolittle” for nothing!
