Back a few years ago, my wife was getting packages delivered by UPS and to make sure they could find my place, she suggested I put our street number on a sign so they could find us. Our home is not visible from the road, just the long drive way which disappears from sight before it gets to our home. Therefore, I got a couple of 4x4's and a 1x12. I made stencils of our street number using Auto Cad to create the type of numbers I wanted on the sign. The stenciled numbers were just a little bit shorter than width of the board. I painted the board white and stenciled the numbers in black. I dug holes with a post hole digger and put the sign up.
That was quite a few years ago and that sign served us well, that is, until yesterday. Somebody ran into it an broke it off at the ground. Here is a picture I took of it:
Of course, I could get busy and make a new one, but I don't feel like doing that right now and, if this was a deliberate act, they will just do it again. My daughter-in-law suggested that, since there is a day-care center across the street from my driveway, a school bus or truck may have backed up out of their parking lot and crossed the road and hit the sign and didn't even know it. Well, it doesn't matter who or what did it, it is done gone for now. Now, you all drive safely and have a great day, you hear?
