AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A sign at Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula.
I found this quite an odd sign.
The first letter looks more like T than an F for fudge.
The last letter is completely obscured
And the business is in the middle of an industrial area - furniture, computers, heavy machinery.
I can only presume it is a wholesaler supplying retail outlets.
Each time I have been in the area, I have never seen anyone enter or leave.

Perhaps a fudged sign
A symbol of sweet secrets
Silent temptation

It isn't the easiest of signs to read. Shame, I love fudge.

Something fishy (tishy?) going on there?

Signs don't always make things clearer, do they? Even though that's their purpose. Still, anything related to chocolate is OK by me!

I'd think you'd smell it cooking IF it really is a fudge shop. Makes me hungry too, just thinking about it. I guess I'll follow Andy's link in his comment above, now my curiousity is getting the better of me.

Very tempting, Gemma! Perhaps they are counting on most people being like me - we recognize fudge no matter what the letters look like. lol

Nice shot. I definitely agree with your about the “T” loofa to the “F” and the “E” missing. Guess the chocolate lovers know what it means.
