For The Rush Fans In The House !

The other day, while driving back to Waunakee from Highland, in a flash out of the corner of my eye I saw something that I couldn’t believe I had never noticed before.

I have probably passed this sign 50 times and never really noticed it at all.

On this day I did though, and after I passed it, I had to laugh.

I was past it before I could even think about getting my cell phone out and snapping a picture, but I knew we would be back. This weekend we went to Highland for a visit and on the way back I made a stop and stood on the side of the road and got the picture I wanted as cars zoomed by.

There are those of you that will look at this and have NO earthly idea why I would want to take a picture of this sign.

And then there are the Rush fans!

Yeah !

Moving Pictures back

YYZ !

Right there in the road signs.

I love that this sign exists in my path on this earth. That of course led me to wonder if other roads from songs existed. I spent a good deal of time looking for some that I could recall. 22 Acacia Avenue (Iron Maiden) and 461 Ocean Boulevard (Clapton) and 2120 South Michigan Avenue (Stones). The 2120 is a reference to Chess Records. I Google mapped it:  2120 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL.

Check out the Willie Dixon Blues Garden attached to the building. Nice.

It occurred to me that there might be a meaning behind the letters YYZ and why Rush used them, and of course there is.

Ah Neil Peart, we love you.
