That's pretty cool. Anyone notice the "SPITTING PROHIBITED BY LAW" sign?

We have a cabin on a nearby recreation lake. We don't make it up there but a few times a year. So I put a sign on a tree there that reads "This property protected by high voltage and a man with a shotgun two nights a week. You guess the night." I found it in an antique store a few years back and couldn't pass it up. So far no one has messed with anything.

If you have skeletons, no sign is needed. Although one that read, "See what happened to the last guy's that tried to break in?" would be cool.

Also, did anyone notice that the postman is wearing half chaps? Was that ever a style? :)
Not half chaps,, just gators, similar to spats but taller and leather. That's for the chain etc..see below

Spats, a shortening of spatterdashes, or spatter guards are a type of classic footwear accessory for outdoor wear, covering the instep and the ankle. Spats are distinct from gaiters, which are garments worn over the shoe and lower trouser leg, and used primarily as personal protective equipment.

Back in the day chewing tobacco was much more popular than it is now. I'd guess that sign is there to address the issues with that habit. Also, did anyone notice that the postman is wearing half chaps? Was that ever a style? :)
I remember seeing the no spitting sign when I was a boy. Asked my grandfather about it because he chewed. He said it was because the fashion of women having long skirts. The hems would drag through the spit and soil the bottom of the skirts. So no spitting on side walks.
