Sign of the Times

I can’t wait for the ground to thaw enough to get my new sign in the ground in front of my house.


I wish I had purchased more … a LOT more, but not because I have that big of a front yard. And Christmas is after the November election, so I didn’t want to buy them as Christmas gifts, and I also don’t have that many friends which should come as no surprise to readers of this blog.

I have more of a selfish reason to wish I had bought all 100 signs at $5 each. That’s right, they sold for just 5 bucks per sign. Once they were unveiled at the latest meeting of the Kane County Democrats, they sold like hotcakes, although I admit to not having any personal experience selling hotcakes. My hotcake knowledge is purely anecdotal that they sell quickly. There is no way that I couldn’t have purchased those 100 signs for $500 and resold them outside for $10 each in order to pocket a cool $500 profit. That may have not gone over well with the rest of the Kane County Democrats at the meeting. I guess I see now why I don’t have that many friends which does save me money on Christmas gifts. But hey, 500 bucks is 500 bucks. Reluctantly, I have discovered that blogging doesn’t pay very well, especially a blog like this one that does not sell like hotcakes.
