TIME:  3:23 PM 
PLACE:  1517 Bond Ave., East St. Louis, IL
SUBJECT:  Sign

I ended up taking both DramaQueen and MonkeyBoy to the pediatrician this afternoon.  DQ had not been feeling well the past two days and probably has a viral infection.  Just ibuprofen and rest for her.  MB has had ringing in his ears for awhile.  They ruled out an ear infection and gave me a referral to make an appointment for a hearing test.  On the way home, we passed by one of my favorite signs.  I noticed that it has sustained some damage since the last time I drove by it.  Bummer.  I still stopped and quickly took this picture from my car.

Nice drive by shooting. Shame it`s damaged. I often see signs I think are cool too, and will take a pic of them.

It's a neat retro sign! Hope DQ feels better!

A sign of a different era when there were a lot of mom and pop shops. It's really nice to capture that.

I like this photo! The first 6 years of my life, I lived on Bond Avenue!!

Hope the kids get better quickly, Sujomi, and that the hearing test turns out okay.

Hope everyone is feeling much better by now! Love this old sign. One of my favorite old signs is also at a fish market.
