There’s a piece of property on Highway J, just west of MO 51, in western Perry county, MO.Â First you notice this sign:
Which, if you can’t make it out, used to say “Conway Twitty.” Â Apparently someone was a fan, as this sign was painstakingly made by jigsawing the individual letters and screwing them into the board.Â Why?Â Who knows?Â Do I make a sign saying “Frank Zappa” for my lawn?
I’m assuming here that we can rule out the possibility that Conway Twitty had a little vacation hideaway in a trailer on the far northeast edge of the Ozarks — convenient to Amidon Conservation Area, aka Pink Rocks.Â Nah.
Okay, so a little further along, after passing half a dozen hand-made No Trespassing signs, we see this little assemblage on the barbed-wire fence:
What are those, you ask?Â Try a closer look…
Yes, they’re Chick Tracts. This isn’t the recommended way to store them, I’m pretty sure.Â My guess is that the resident is the black sheep of the neighborhood, and somebody keeps giving him these.Â And he hangs them on the fence.Â Â But I could be way off base.Â Any thoughts?
