You have a knack of finding whimsical things. These are great!
I like the free beer sign...


Sallie - they have a "free" sign similar to this on the wharf in Old Town Sacramento - I think it says free oysters - tomorrow...

That is so much fun! I love it!


Now I know what to do with that old handset gathering dust in the garage.


Now I know what to do with our unused landline phones:)

Ha! The phone is very funny. I would be the one to leave a message. Hmmmmm , how about "at the tone, insert a dime". :)


Hi! Your posts are very interesting. A kind of humor is this post. I enjoyed your former posts very much. Thanks for sharing.

Haha, what a funny scene; an old phone in the middle of nowhere. Double D would probably stay in the pub until 12:01AM demanding his free beer. lol


Funny finds! I guess people in Alaska have a good sense of humor. :)


I love the beer sign.


Cute signs


Those Alaskans have a sense of humor!


someone has a great sense of humor.

great find.


The phone fence....how funny! :-) Loved the other signs as well, especially the beer sign. Tomorrow never comes....


Fun whimsical finds. I actually have one phone that old that I still use although granted it's in a room I rarely answer the phone in and these days most people call my cell. I've had the same land line number for 32 years and the same cell number for 15 so it's kind of hard to let either number go. I think I could switch my cell number to the land line number but then people would have to get used to my cell number changing to land number. Boy I sound like an old codger.


what a great set of signs


Love that old phone!

There was a bar in Arkansas that was named "Free Beer Tomorrow!" Wish we had arrived in Soldotna just a few days later, as the salmon run had not yet begun. We enjoyed river fishing and birding from our RV campground right on the bank.

Oh the phone on the fence is funny. (My mom actually has a "rotary" style phone that same color that still works). I think it's great that people added signs to it.


Cute stuff! Love the beer sign!


The old phone and signs are just too funny. To bad you couldn't hang around for the free beer.


What fun, great finds Sallie!

They are hilarious, both of them.

Ha ha - love to see such random whimsy!

Ha! Ha! I just adore stuff like that. Very fun, especially cool for the Good Fences post too!

I remember Soldotna on the Kenai - been there many times.


thanks, sallie!


Like jam every other day . . . like the phone, nice to see someone has a sense of humour.

Ah, the constant promise of beer tomorrow!

One day perhaps!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne


Such a funny place for the phone! :)


Oh My, Sallie; These sure are funny and your last phrase gave me a smile(*^_^*) The telephone makes me feel really nostalgic:-) I think (or wish) we can have some sense of humor here for signs.

Have a great rest of the week, my friend.

The signs with the phone are a unique feature. A mini outdoor museum could evolve there + signs. Free beer tomorrow - hmmm what if I said their tomorrow is actually my today...


Priceless!And the Pub menu looks good, especially the deserts!


Funny idea with the telephone, and the signs are great !


Such a sense of humor!


These are great Sallie, thanks for the smiles.

I'm surprised that free beer wasn't served yesterday. Tom The Backroads Traveller


Practical jokers are everywhere it seems.


Oh yes, the old land line hone is having some fun again!

Hahaha … I love the phone on a random country fence with a note from the President and I am glad to know whimsy is alive and well in the middle of nowhere. :)
