Signs of Guam

There are quirks in the "land of not quite right" that we'll miss.
Some of those are displayed prominently around the island on signs,
For instance....

Or an ol favorite...
where else in Guam can you possibly buy
"Guns, Ammo, Tennis, Vacuum Cleaners, Martial Arts, Camping, Snacks, beverages, health Aids, Home appliances, gift items"
Truly this place is unique.
I don't know that I'll ever be able to enter a store that sells
children's birthday party hats on the same shelf as a toilet plunger.

OOG..."Only On Guam" is a catch phrase that we hear all the time around here.
I think this sign is just that- the epitome of OOG
I don't know if it's funnier that some days here do seem to last 25 hours,
or that this 25 hour mart is apparently not open all 25 hours?

tuba- this is NOT the musical instrument :)
Only those of us who've done our time in
Guam know well that this is not a musician selling his horn!
