Last month I went out for Chinese food and my fortune said “The sign you have been waiting for will soon appear.” I’ve gotten some pretty puzzling fortunes before (such as, “You will soon meet the woman of your dreams” while celebrating my 35th wedding anniversary, or the cryptic “There is a nice cake waiting for you at home” when I don’t eat sugar–maybe they were referring to a cake of soap?) Anyway, I didn’t recall asking for a sign from above, so I threw the fortune away, and didn’t think about it again until this week, when Rachel picked up the brand new sign that will soon be hanging in front of WRBH.
I’ve enclosed a sneak preview for you if you’re interested in seeing the vivid red, white and blue wooden wonder that will soon be stopping traffic on Magazine Street at the corner of Foucher–it’s probably better to get a good look at it here rather than risk getting into an accident trying to catch a glimpse while driving. Graffiti Graphics did a wonderful job with our new “name in lights” logo and the much-easier-to-read website address.
Wait, what did you say? You really liked the old sign? Well, how would you like to OWN the old sign? In the coming months you’ll be hearing a lot more about a special event happening at WRBH where an auction is involved, and one of the items up for bidding will be that same weathered beacon that spent years welcoming our volunteers to the station, the survivor of several hurricanes, rainstorms, and broken chains, and the sentimental favorite of many of our readers. When will this occur? Keep reading the blog for details, and I can promise you this–“The sign you have been waiting for will soon appear.”
