Hi! If you are visiting this page from an outside link, Welcome!

Gamma Correction (if images seem dark)...&... More for Netscape users (re: image quality)

The following scanned photos of roadsigns (and other signs) were taken while jaunting around Texas gawking at wildflowers. We are not professional class photographers, so many of the photos are of less-than-great quality (to say the least). Nevertheless, we hope you are as amused as we were to discover these very real signs of Texas.
