Missing Sign

Today as I pulled out of the driveway at French General, a young man walked up to me and asked me if this was French General. Yes, I said (duh, I thought - just look at the sign!) I looked over - to kind of motion towards the sign - and it was gone. That's right - someone had taken our sign - and believe me, we needed it - nobody ever knows where we are! Who would need an old sign like that, I wondered? As I sat there gazing towards the missing sign, another man walked up to me and out of the blue said, I always keep an eye on this place - whenever I am in the neighborhood, I sit here on your wall and watch this old house. I asked him if he knew who had taken the sign. He said he hadn't even noticed it was missing. So there you go.  Visitors beware - there is no sign at French General anymore...you'll just have to know we are in the little pink house at the elbow in the road. Good luck!

Goodness..it was such a sweet sign. I've never stolen a thing in my life, but I do look longingly at lovely signs sometimes. Hope you get your sign back soon!

Awww...that's a shame..but I can see the desire for that sign...I love it and I would love to hang it up on my wall in my house...but it's not here...Hopefully they'll return...do you think maybe it's in the rose bushes..maybe fell off?

I would bet that an over zealous fan took it as a souvenir. Too bad. But,it's better to think that it's somewhere being cherished than just tossed out by a vandal.
I've been to the store, and I don't know how you could miss it. It's so distinctively charming.
Sorry about the sign.
