Funny how things change. A amusement park that I used to work at doesn't have a full time sign person. The park has gone through a few different owners in the past 20 years, one of them being Six Flags. I was there yesterday to put in a bid to repaint one of their signs. I asked why they don't have a full time sign person and the Maintenance manager said "I don't know, the last guy didn't get along with everybody." The signs that are there are starting to look real bad, including the horses on the 1906 Carousel. Too bad. They don't understand the value of a good sign person. And because I already am busy as I could be, I'm gonna pass on the job. But what an opportunity for the right person. In my area, there are not any good journeymen sign painters. One who can paint, build signs and also run a plotter. I can also imagine a good sign shop and all of it's equipment going to waste. The name of the park is Wild Waves in Federal Way Wa.

One of my former apprentices went on to work for an amusement park sign company that sent painters to parks around the western states. They did murals and billboards and park signs and rides and food sales places. He was a foreman and liked the work and travel. John is no longer alive. The work didn't kill him.
