Not For Sale

A Sign on Interstate 81
If you’re going south on Interstate 81 in Tennessee, look to your right between mile markers 7 & 6 and you will see a sign hanging to a fence that says, “NOT FOR SALE”.

P1050259There is some very good farm land behind that sign, so I’ve been thinking about what this person’s intent is by having this sign.

  • Perhaps the owner has been bothered by people requesting to buy his property. And they hope this sign will deter interest.
  • Or maybe the owner is using reverse psychology in an attempt to get people interested is his land.
  • Maybe people have been trying to buy the fence (grass, tree, or something else in the field) and not the land, and the owner is discouraging inquiries.
  • Knot for Sale?
    knotSince this is the route some might take traveling to Douglas lake to do some fishing, perhaps the person with the sign is trying to sell instructions on how to tie a new type of fishing KNOT (but they don’t know how to spell “knot” correctly).

Do you know the purpose of the sign or have a better idea for its purpose? If so let me know.

PS – I’m really not crazy, I just act like it sometimes.

Joke of the Day

A farmer was driving along the road with a load of fertilizer. A little boy, playing in front of his house, saw him and called, "What've you got in your truck?"

"Fertilizer," the farmer replied.

"What are you going to do with it?" asked the little boy.

"Put it on strawberries," answered the farmer.

"You ought to live here," the little boy advised him. "We put sugar and cream on ours."
