Route 40 Between Columbus and Zanesville 2

I did not understand this until I got close enough to the sign to see that the sheep(a ewe) was holding a plant (a herb) i8n its mouth.

This may not seem like much at first glance but when you are traveling at 12 miles per hour you get a little extra time to think about stuff. as I kept looking at this scene I kept seeing more different geometric shapes , angles and lines that usual. There are a bunch when you look closely.

When I was a kid you would see these ads painted on barns all over the place. From what I understand it was very common to not paint a barn because of cost. Mail Pouch came along and painted the farmer's barn if they could include the ad. There are not many left.

There are several classic buildings along Route 40 like this one.
