Oh that's funny. Could be the devil lives there!

DeniseinVA said...

This made me laugh and thank you, it is good medicine to start the day with a chuckle.

Brian King said...

hehe! I've never seen a pitchfork used like that! Perhaps that's where trespassers end up. :-)

Sandra said...

Looks like the devil has already visited there.. cool fence.. love it

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; I smiled with your caption♪ I wish to touch the horses inside, but I wouldn't want to get inside with that plow on top of the fence :-) I wondered what is the black thing lying by the pole.
Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Knipsa Passtscho said...

LOL Morning Tex . LOL Hug B

EG CameraGirl said...

Ha! The Devil makes me do lots of things, but don't tell Santa, PLEASE!

Jeevan said...

looks weird!

messymimi said...

That is funny! Maybe it's the warning of what you'll find yourself at the business end of if you let the devil tempt you too far?

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I kinda' like this. It seems very genuine. They must have reasons, too. Just sayin'.

Dicky Bird said...

haha that's funny.

georgettesullins said...

The reflector light sure looks like a friendly eye of the devil. Note to self, don't get tempted.

Pamela Gordon said...

That's an ominous looking warning on that fence! Have a great day!

Revrunner said...

Jacquelineand.... said...

Oh you better watch out/

Hello TJ! I can't imagine how much fencing material has been used in Texas!

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, mean looking fence, I sure would keep out. Blessings Francine.

Linda Kay said...

How funny with the pitchfork. Wonder what the owner was thinking?

sweetdaysundertheoaks.com said...

That is kind of a wonky scary fence.. I would obey the sign!!!

Stephanie Faris said...

That's adorable!

DJan said...

Now that's funny! Red pitchforks are kind of unusual signposts, aren't they? :-)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

The devil made him do it!

Anvilcloud said...

I don`t think I`d have to be warned twice.

LV said...

Look likes the devil has been there. At least, he left his mark. Great.

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Wow, possible "Pitch-Fork" treatment for Trespassers. I think I will stay out. :-) Neat photos. John

William Kendall said...

Someone has a peculiar sense of humour!

Montanagirl said...

HaHa!! Good one, Tex!!

A pitch fork and cactus - think I'll keep my distance! :)

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Tanya Breese said...

MarkD60 said...

Happy Good Fence day!

bas said...

Wel een idee maar of het nou echt indruk maakt?

Carola Bartz said...

It was the devil I was thinking of first as well. Someone has an interesting kind of humor...

Terri Buster said...

Hmm, that's a strange addition to that sign. LOL!

don said...

That rugged, piece meal fence and post makes me think the sign should be taken to heart! :-)

Gosia k said...

rural America is fascinating

Debbie said...

so many "signs" down by you. they don't apply to folks who just want a picture!!!! ;)

photodoug said...

See the point. Great find. Thanks for sharing.

Kate said...

Don't worry about being "naughty or nice" guess Santa is just fat and judgmental!

Irma said...

This is impressive, I definitely would not go past there.
However, a strange sense of humor.

DIMI said...

Great photo Tex!!Cool fence!!
Dimi...

Melissa said...

Looks like we had a similar theme today. Your sign actually looks a little more inviting (plus they know how to spell!)

pattisjarrett said...

The pitchfork makes the threat a little more ominous.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

It's actually a welcome sign!

Jo said...

I love it! Greetings Jo PS Thanks for helping me with the link via email.

Small City Scenes said...

Crazy wrapped barb wire fence. Not gonna try!

Susan said...

That's great! Love that pitchfork!

Karen S. said...

Interesting place. I wonder if it's another secret entrance to the North Pole? They're everywhere you know!

Karen S. said...

Now that's another new interesting box under the comments. I wondered for a moment should I check the box, to prove what I already know that I'm not a robot? Blogger enjoys keeping us on our toes. I ignored the box!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Maybe the owner changes it to coincide with the current holiday. Might be a Christmas tree there now.

Sylvia K said...

Great pic for the day -- as always!! I love it! Still no answer to my blog problems, but will continue to try and visit all my blogging friends! Thank you for the fun and the beauty you've brought into my world over the past few years!! Have a wonderful holiday season!!

Inger said...

Looks like those people are serious! Thanks for linking me up, your blog is now back to normal size and I learned something new.

S. J. Qualls said...

Interesting, also the odd bits on the post - sensors maybe?
I would definitely leave them alone.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

If the barbed wire doesn't get you, the pitch fork will.

Sally Crowe said...

Yes, that pretty much is self explanatory. LOL

Andrea Priebe said...

This fence borders on pathetic ... the Devils Pitchfork sort of livens it up a bit. Do you think they are trying to tell us something? Funny catch, Theresa ...

Andrea @ From The Sol

Nancy J said...

that might have seen better days, but the fork says so much with THAT sign. Jean.

Ms. A said...

We've only made two trips to my daughter's place in the country, but I have seen some different fences that around here. I need to try to have my camera out on one of the next trips!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Great sign accessory!

Stephen Hayes said...

Personally, I'd obey that sign.

Black Jack's Carol said...

That old devil.. he does get us into trouble sometimes, doesn't he. Thanks for the smile and the totally original fence :)

SweetMarie said...

very interesting! great fence!

Jeanne said...

That is so cool!!!

Ruth Kelly said...

I suppose that that red pitch fork is supposed to scare invaders away - it looks more enticing.

Leovi Leovi said...

Funny fence, I love it. beautiful photos !!!!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Haven't been around for a while, but I"m glad to see you're still hosting this round up. YOur fence reminds me of that song, "if you're caught in hell, you better keep moving . . . you might get out before the devil even knows you're there."
Happy Holidays!
Rinda

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Theresa, Though tongue and cheek, the message is clear - stay away. Interesting fence. Have a good day today!

thepoodleanddogblog said...

That is definitely a portal to the Underworld. I would avoid it at all cost.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Whoa, I wonder how much their security service is costing them?

Bob Bushell said...

Yes, funny I think.

jeannettestgermain said...

Wow these are looking serious:):)

sonia a. mascaro said...

Just funny warning! That fence made me laugh!

barbara l. hale said...

LOL! Must be left over from Halloween. Good catch!

Filip Demuinck said...

The tritand, it doesn't look scary. I sure it doesn't work or it is a funny guy living there.

Greetings,
Filip

nookworm said...

Well he kept out your feet but not your eyes! Some fence!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

No how ho, it does look like the wicked one dropped his pitchfork there. How funny!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Silly auto correct! Ho ho ho!

Threatening the forks. :)))

theflutteringleaf said...

Oh! don't like the looks of that. Great images though.

Robin Lamb said...

T, hmm, most strange!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very funny! :)

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh my! They mean business! Of course, they left the pitchfork for the trespassers to use.....:)

Probably gives the owner a chuckle every time he comes home:@)

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

Debbie at Travel with Intent said...

Great sign. I wouldn't mess with that pitchfork

troutbirder said...

YEA I'm not a rob0t. Is that Naugghty or nice?

thirtysevenandcounting said...

Between the barbed wire and the cactus in the yard, I don't think I'll be taking any chances! :)

Lindy

Today there is a checkbox for "I'm not a robot." Hopefully that will do the trick today.

Still had to type in a word, but at least it was readable.

Julia said...

Maybe the devil lives there, hahaha.
Hugs,
JB

Randy said...

Now that's different.

Red said...

Ha ha, cute! Nice find...

I'm going for it... I'm going to check the "I'm not a robot" box.

OK I got a green check mark, guess I passed!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Ha, good one! I'm thinking if you trespass someone's going to be chasing you with a pitchfork!!

Margaret Adamson said...
