Here in the land of my ancestors be a man with grit, a man who dares send messages to all and sundry from his perch on a bench. This is Ralph Dymer, and he is Sign Guy.
Sign Guy has been killing some retired man's time sitting in front of his senior's apartment building for the past few years where he displays homemade signs with content running the entire spectrum of moods, from merry to disgruntled.
