Pioneer Farm Blog

Pioneer Farm Blog

I had been drinking plenty of water, so I knew heatstroke wasn’t causing me to hallucinate the words on the sign above the barn at the Indiana State Fair. Pioneer Farm Blog? Huh? I stared at it for another 5 seconds and still couldn’t understand what the sign was supposed to say. A Pioneer Farm Blog? Here? Amongst the sheep and horses and pigs? Then finally I figured it out – Pioneer Farm Bldg. (short for “Building”). Good to know.

Okay, I can’t stop laughing. Are we really using abbreviations on buildings now? Isn’t the “building” part just a given? And I can see why you were a might confused, of course I am the girl that used to think the ‘.9′ that follows the prices posted at gas stations was actually a little “g”, as in “$2.39 per gallon.” My husband still LOVES to remind me of that one 10 years later.

LOL! I actually looked at the picture first, and read it as building – but only because I see that a lot for work. BLDG, SQFT, MFG (manufacturing), IND (industrial), etc…

Holy crap! This is so funny! The other day my roommate and I went to a movie and across the street from the theater was a sign that said, “Bldg for rent”.

I said, “Blog for rent?” As in, blog for free rent! Or, I have a blog I’d like to rent out.

My roommate has not let me forget what a complete Internet dork I am ever since. Awesome.

I’m showing her your post now! I’m not alone!! :-)

Mental note: Don’t drink water while reading one of your highly comical posts. I just spit out my water when I read this. Thanks for the laugh though!

We have a fair that has a building that reads Archery and Cat Barn.

Might have come in handy for your next post.

I saw BLOG when I looked at the picture too.

It is only because we are bloggers that it stands out to us like that.

I know I tend to notice people with the same color outfits on that I have more prominently each day. I am sure there is a psychological explanation for this sort of thing.
