I’m so enjoying our summer visit to Sperryville, and I just want to make one gentle suggestion about the “Respect Rappahannock Welcome” signs. They’re so long. Perhaps just “up yours!” would be more efficient and equally threatening.

You could put the longer version in envelopes for visitors so they could have time to digest the unpleasant, unwelcome feeling. It can take more time than a sign allows to shift from “let’s browse the art gallery before we leave” to “lock the car doors, only the trees are our friends.”
