Another Sign from my Travels…and by travel I mean buzzing around near home….

Standard
This is my big “D”.  I found this wonderful thing at a local hole in the wall Flea Market not far from my house….I always think of that particular place as a crummy Flea Market but I really shouldn’t however because I have found a couple of really great treasures there.  I was told by the vendor that this “D” came from a Denny’s sign that was on a restaurant in Saskatchewan.  If that is true, it is far from home. When I haggled with him I got the impression that he was glad to be rid of it and he let me have it for $20.00  It is a beautiful thing in deep orange Plexi glass with a metal frame that is nice and chippy ( the paint is half chipped off).  Apparently Denny’s moved on to a new logo design with a simpler “D”.  Too bad because I love the little curly cue! It has no relevance to our family name but if anyone asks what it stands for, I can come up with any number of answers….D for Duh!….D for Dinner….D for Don’t ask me what it stands for!   I am carefully guarding my “D” these days because my middle daughter, Morgan, is dating a guy whose surname begins with a “D” and he has had his eyes on my sign!!  He will have to be VERY good to my girl for me to even consider letting him have it!
