Dull, or Boring?

Again in the “Just for Fun” category.

Apparently the signwriter didn’t like Sandy when he visited there

I grew up 15 miles from Boring, and when we were in Portland in October my 11-year-old, for some reason, wanted a picture of this sign. 🙂 DON’T use the picture without her permission — as the youngest of six, she is quite militant about protecting her rights!

Last Saturday, we drove within a mile of Dull (and fittingly, didn’t even know it was there).

For an Oregonian now in Scotland, news of a Dull–Boring link is absolutely phenomenal, and all should be thankful for the initiative of the Dull Women’s Book Club.

As a kid, I was always intrigued by the fact that Boring is on the road to Damascus — Saul certainly didn’t find that road to be boring (Acts 9:1-8).

  1. My husband has a relative who lives there, but some time ago something changed with the mail, so it had to be addressed to a different town.

    Love place names. On our recent trip to the UK, we kept driving by a village called Dummer. Not sure I’d want that as my address, although I am sure it is a very nice village.
