Thursday Doors

I cannot tell a lie, it was the sign this time and not the door that caught my eye.

We’ll keep the “G” rating here, but I’m sure you can guess why this shop sign caused me to laugh out loud as we were driving down Steinwehr Avenue in Gettysburg. 🙂


We circled back, and I had myself another good laugh. It was a tack store. Hats, boots, saddles, and everything else you’d need to outfit yourself for a day out on the range. What did I expect?

After I stopped laughing, I looked around because I really wanted a t-shirt with that sign on it. The proprietor laughed too – no t-shirt, yet.

They had some great signs on the wall that weren’t for sale but certainly delivered a message.


Nice red, white, and blue door, funny sign, and sage advice – more than I usually get from one stop. 🙂

Here’s wishing you a great Thursday.

  1. Love the paint colors. Do you remember what the yellow flag represents?


    • I contacted them on Facebook and here’s their answer: The Horse You Rode In On 9:28am Oct 1
      Hi Judith. The yellow flag is the “Don’t Tread On Me” flag. We have always flown all three flags at our shop–American flag , Conferedrate flag and the Don’t Tread On Me Flag. We hope you enjoyed your visit to historic Gettysburg!

    Always good to start the day with a door and a laugh. Thanks Judy. I’d be looking for the t-shirt too.

    Great find! I wonder if the owner WILL make t-shirts…how many other people have asked before you? Maybe you were the one that made him say, “I should do it!”

    Quite an interesting capture, the colours of the door and the sign do complement one another and catch one’s attention.

    I always like color in photographs, especially quaint and quirky places. What a great Doors post, Judy! The t-shirt would be fun to wear and get conversations or silly looks. 🙂

    It is a great sign! But I love the door, too — the colors are wonderful. Bet he starts selling t-shirts soon!

    I can’t believe I missed a tack shop within 50 miles of my house, lol.

    In Fells Point, Baltimore there is bar of the same name. Any Car Talk fans here remember Click and Clack, when crediting the shows lackeys, saying that transportation was provided by The Horse You Rode In?

  25. This reminds me of a saying of an old colleague of mine (now retired): “Nobody knows how dumb you are until you start talking.”
