We were heading cross country in Florida on our way to meet up with some PA neighbors that spend 4 or 5 months down south to avoid our winter weather. Driving along the US-441 in Mount Dora I spotted this billboard held up by a Big Pencil. I made a quick U-turn and pulled into the parking lot of Charlie Johnson’s Building office. As we were walking up we met Carl Ludecke, the VP and son-in-law of Charlie. He was a wealth of information about the billboard: erected in 1987 for about $30,000, grandfathered in and now worth a whole lot more. Income from the sign is “Better that Social Security!”
