Which way do I go?

I somehow decided that doing part time census work would be an easy way to earn some extra cash so I said, "sign me up!"

Ummm...what I didn't stop to consider? Me and maps....NOT the best of friends.

I must have that "lost" look to me 'cause I've had several people (including two different police officers) stop to help me.

Of course it doesn't help when you have a back country road that doesn't appear on the census map or even Mr. Policeman's GPS...and Google Maps gives you directions to an adjoining road and then just stops before giving me the "arrive at destination" info. I can't help but get this mental image of Mr. Google peeking at the giant map inside my computer, squinting his eyes, furrowing his brow, shrugging his shoulders and saying, "hmmmm...your guess is as good as mine."

This week's challenge: while the whole maps and street signs haven't exactly been much fun for ME this week, let's see if YOU can have some fun with 'em. Use something "mappish" (it is TOO a word!) on your projects.

Some ideas (but not limited to): arrows, street signs, directions.

Hope you have fun getting where you're going!! Facebook
