    What does that even mean??? I do love southern roadsigns, they do have a different flavor than in other parts of the country - whether SE or SW

    "My veins are full of glitter"
    Is that where the Twilight vampires live?

    There's a sign just outside of town that says "Talk to your kids before they choose" and underneath all the options: Marijuana? Cocaine? (and other illegal substances). It's trying to tell you to talk to them so they don't use drugs, but it appears to be telling you to make sure they pick the best illegal drug!

    "Glitter in the veins" means being naturally glamorous, born to shine.

    Thanks! It's obvious that even though I've lived in Texas 14 years I'm not from here.

    That would make an interesting report from the coroner, that's for sure...

    and this weeks pithy road signs were two advertising law services. The first was for a defending drivers of big rigs and 18 wheelers involved in accidents. The telephone number was "call 1- 800- It Wasn't Me !" and the other a copy cat type lawyer for people fighting drunk driving charges was ' call 1-800- Not My Fault!"

    The pithy church sign at the Cinco Ranch Christian Car Care and Community Center was " Be a fountain, not a drip."
