It seems like every day of the week I get another of my way-too-many e-newsletters related to my profession, sometimes only ever so remotely related to the things I do (or better said: “want to”…maybe “should do”). So many I get that sometimes a quick click of the “X” in the toolbar without even a quick look-see is done just to keep the ol’ inbox manageable in size. And here’s the bad thing…unless I skim through them for any thing of interest, I usually feel bad deleting them unread as if some person had really taken the time to compose, then send the email to me personally.
One of the e-newsletters that I favor is from Athletic Business. I subscribed to this daily update mainly because my company does a number to athletic facilities and many of our clients are Parks and Rec type folks. It’s called trying to stay up with, or maybe even one step ahead of my clients (and competition).
Now going down another avenue of thought…many of you know of my photography hobby (obsession). Of all the pictures I take, I’ve started several “collections” and seem hell-bent on keeping those odd ones updated. One of the “collections” in my library is that of funny, unusal, corny, unique, and what I fondly call my “no s _ _ t” signs. I have shared and probably bored many of those sign photos with many of you.
So where am I going with this?

Of that photo collection I mentioned, these pictures certainly come to mind…and some of which may have already been shared:
