In dismantling an old yard art project, I was left with the two pieces of roofing slate (retrieved from Ft. Worden some years ago) mounted on a painted board with the lower strip of corrugated metal attached.
This seemed to be a sign without the letters, so I pulled out my stencils and enamel paints, and went to work.
I hope the position adjacent to my home explains the ampersand. No sign on the house, but that could happen in future…
Note that the metal enclosure behind the sign covers our rain cistern pump.
