The one near the bus station is located on 11th between Oak and Olive, on the north side of the road, visible as you drive west along 11th. I am not 100% sure of that info, but that's what my memory says...

"Own Your Husband" (modified version) is located at Washington and Lorrane on south side of the intersection. The sign is facing north and you can see it clearly if you are driving east along 28th as it "doglegs" over to 29th.

Maybe they could have been more inclusive AND avoided misunderstanding if they had written it as, "Love your Partner". It sounds strange to my ears too, but I guess we will get used to this terminology in a few years.



Love Your Wife was inside a shop on Corburg Rd. near the Dairy Queen on Willakenzie. It might still be there, but I think the business has changed a few times since I took this photo so I'm not sure. It was a consignment shop, and a cooking place, I dunno what it is now...

I wonder if they put that sign inside because of what happened to the husband one?

I am usually practicing my slalom driving skills while going around those corners, so I can not catch what is written underneath the obscuring spray paint.

By the way, if it says "Respect Your Husband", I am definitely back to believing this is a religious cult action, whether being done by a mother/daughter team or not.
Finally took the photo today:



It used to say Love Your Husband... you can tell in this pic... but I dunno what was done over it? Might have said the f-word and then somebody tried to clean that up and it just smeared black paint everywhere? Some people suck.



It looked like other people started putting their own happy signs underneath.

Also got the "Please Come Home"... got some weird looks from the haggard-looking youth hanging around when I took he pic...





If anyone sees anymore signs would you let me know? I love them. (Thanks! )

Just googled and came upon this blog:
banners bring hope

I wonder if this blog was started by the person who does them or if they just love the signs, too?

I found a sign today, but instead of being yellow, it's black. But it's in the same place as a yellow sign was before...



And then near where the "forgive your kids sign used to be, there's a sign now that says "forgive yourself"...
