City of Roses
John, I'm glad you thought that!
I ran out of cardboard, so I basically just had to think fast and improvise! So I basically brushed a spare canvas panel with a yellow Crayola crayon, had some colored Sharpie markers and glitter gel pens aptly laid before me, and I designed in bold letters the message.
Unfortunately 12 by 16 inches just isn't that big, so it's not one of those signs a passenger in an automobile could glimpse and say, "Ah, yeaaaahhhhh!" and honk the horn in cheer, or boo at you. Nevertheless, there were so many people out shopping and all, so I got between 60-125, "Can I see your sign?" responses.
All in all, it was good enough for me. Next time I'll be sure to have cardboard on me so I can write in a larger size and font. Ah well, it happens, no hurt feelings! (giggles)
