A fun Sunday addition to the blog...
Thought ya'all might enjoy this one. I made this sign after years of frustration. I have a wicked sense of humor and am known to tell religious soliciters that "sorry, right now you're interrupting my devil worship," or "Sure, I'll talk to you about your God if you talk to me about your sex life." I've tried all other methods, but I stay on their "hit list."
We have a neighborhood of Jehovah's, Born-Again's, and Mormons, like the dreaded triad of intrusiveness. I probably make it worse by putting my Celtic knot designs out front on my doormat and door, but then I'm Scottish, so I kind of wear it with pride. Come Halloween, I'm one of the biggest attractions in the neighborhood. Perhaps they thought it was time to save me (or win heaven points), who knows?
Well, I sat down one Sunday afternoon (instead of attending their churches) and made this sign with my woodburning kit. It's not a specialty of mine, I usually do crafts and oil painting, but I thought it got the point across. In fact, it got it across so well that every time someone comes to my door the first thing they say is, "where did you get that sign, I want one!"
I just want to say thank you to the Pagans, Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists who aren't out there pounding on doors, up in folks' faces, and waving their literature at me. They have my total respect.
