Another great week of stories over at Friday Picture Show, Hosted by Jen De Santis.  Here's my entry and one of the honorable mentions this week.

I suppose the sign is intended to be ironic: “Something Strange Happened Here” The garish neon light irritates my eye. I’ve lived here for twenty years and let me tell you nothing ever happens here.
Heck, I don’t even have visitors. Occasionally some out-of-towner wanders across the river, but turns tail as soon as they realize they’ve left the beaten path. Sure, every now and again some teenager tries to prove he is brave by running around the sign.
Whatever, we’d never waste resources on such a gaudy sign, for a place where nothing ever happens, on my home planet.
