I’m not a big fan of candy anymore, except for a good piece of chocolate now and again. But while in the checkout line at the grocery store the other day, I couldn’t help noticing the vintage-styled packaging of this brand of liquorice. There were several of these bags hanging amongst the other brightly-colored contemporary wrappers of candies and sweets.

Then I noticed the wording “soft eating” and wondered…what other kind is there? I had to get a photo.

Folks were curious, rather than annoyed at me for taking photos of the candy aisle while they were in line to pay for their goods. Probably because I mentioned the wording on the package. A man standing behind me said he had never noticed that before, but the candy was some of the best he has ever tasted.

IN THE FIELD: More Explanation Needed

Am I missing something here?

Does this mean if a person is handicapped and they park here, a $50 to $300 fine is in their future? Or does it mean if you are not handicapped and you park here, a $50 to $300 fine is coming your way?

I realize sometimes a sign can only be so big, and only so much info can be printed on it. But I still I think a little more thought should have gone into this one.

IN THE FIELD: Really Makes You Wonder

Most signs are posted for a good reason…directions, safety, awareness, rules and regulations. And then there are signs that just don’t make sense.

Here is a perfect example. This sign is posted at an elementary school playground. It is informative, as signs typically are, yet it’s a bit off-kilter.

I understand why the school officials would not want children, or adults for that matter, on the basketball court with skateboards, bicycles, scooters, and rollerblades. But what I can’t figure out is why ball playing is not allowed on a BASKETBALL COURT.
