Collecting Signs and Bumper Stickers, and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge (CFFC): Lime Green

Of course I have to start with Dragon Con… Atlanta’s Labor Day weekend Sci-fi and Fantasy Con. The United Methodist Church I passed on the way to the Con hotels Sunday morning had this sign out front —

God Loves Kirk AND Picard sign

If you’re a Sci-Fi fan, you’ll recognize that the next logical question after “Star Trek or Star Wars?” might be “Kirk or Picard?” Personally, I’d prefer Deep Space Nine’s Benjamin Sisco. Or Voyager’s Katherine Janeway. As for God, I’m sure She loves them all (but Enterprise’s Archer? Maybe not so much).”  

I’ve been hoarding photos of signs for a while now, so I’m using this post to share some more. Moving on to bumper stickers —

car signs - fountain of smart and sci fi coexist

I love this Sci-Fi version of the traditional “Coexist” bumper sticker. Can you name all the letters? (and yes, we could always use more smart)

car signs totoro & apple

Totoro lovers: I’d seen (and admired!) this car around a few times last year before I figured out it belonged in my neighborhood. 

And signs in my new neighborhood —

Happy Tooth Day

I’d rather not admit how long it took me to get this (it was out in front of the Dentist’s office on Peachtree Street last Tuesday). It’s Tuesday again, so a good time to post it.

Now to bookend with a little more green, it’s back to Dragon Con for a sign that Jurassic Park is alive and well.

Dragon Con - Hilton Lobby raptor

The Hilton was proud of their velociraptor collection. This one had the biggest bite. I was just too late to get a picture of a guy taking a selfie with his head in its mouth.

Dragon Con - Raptor and T-Rex

Puffy T-Rex stopped by for a photo op (and I wish I knew what T carried in his (or her) laundry basket.

On a more somber note, today is September 11. And here in the U.S. anyone who was around for September 11 2001 remembers where they were when they heard about the attack on the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, as well as Flight 93, the plane brought down by passengers on its way to Washington. Here’s another car sticker for remembrance. It was a Tuesday then, and it’s on Tuesday again this year.

We'll never forget - car signs - Sept 11

Maybe this is where I should have put that photo of the “Coexist” sticker.
