There were a number of interesting signs in Abergavenny. These aren't some of them.

 

Last one tomorrow....we have all suffered enough

I love the name "The Miserable Cow"! Wonder where they came up with that?
Bill Phillips: They are probably baking mad elizabeth

It feels like this series has come to the end of the road. I appreciate the signage that you display here Bill, both enjoyable and informative.
Bill Phillips: The final death throw is tomorrow, although this one should perhaps have been the last, or if you were Mr Shaw the only.

I like to reading these signs - in general I like to read sign in foreign countries! "The miserable Cow Coffee Bar" is English humour - or Welsh one? FOOd and FWYD sound very similar!
Bill Phillips: As the only Welsh comedian i can call to mind is Max Boyce, it must be English humour as he isn't very funny.

I see you are a fan of signs, Bill - you have inspired me to show a collage of signs some time
Bill Phillips: I particularly like totally meaningless or pointless ones or those that state the blindingly obvious Lisl grin

smilesmile Haha! I love the miserable cow cafe!
Bill Phillips: We intend to pay it a visit next time we go
Strange name for a coffee bar isn't it. There must be some story behind it
Bill Phillips: I think it is a good bit of marketing as you are unlikely to forget the name, and also will be tempted to try it!

The Miserable Cow - wow. Now I have to go, finally sold me on the place. Sounds wonderful!
Bill Phillips: We might see you there Mike....Black tea for me....
We have lots of cobblers signs in July and August. Irish Cobblers are a favorite potato here but I don't like them at all.
Bill Phillips: I have never heard of Irish cobbler potatoes Mary.

Ah, a sign of the food festival. At long last. Poor cow.
Bill Phillips: We were there the week before i think it was. Have a good weekend Louis
Good to see they take their food seriously, Bill! smile
Bill Phillips: To be fair there is nothing to touch a nice bit of Welsh lamb
An entertaining assortment Bill
Bill Phillips: Cheers Fred
Haha, I've often heard characters in British movies and sitcoms use the phrase "you miserable old cow", Bill, but have never seen an establishment call themselves that. Great find!
Bill Phillips: It is somewhere i will have to try! Next year probably

I beg to differ, O Great One. An interesting collection. I wonder what "Cobblers" is in Welsh? That's my reaction to huge sum of money wasted on erecting dual language signs.
Bill Phillips: Cryddion. Well that is if you believe google translate.
Peter picked up on the date "cock-up", that's a Welsh word BTW, and I did wonder if "cobblers" has an English translation, I'm not sure what it means
Bill Phillips: The Welsh for cobblers is Cryddion according to google translate. I hadn't spotted the date thing. In welsh both days are the 16th!
Well they seem to be stating the obvious ... After all the ''Go West young man'' statement doesn't ring true when you hit deadend at the seaside coast of Wales.

With Wales being full of sheep no wonder the cow is feeling a bit down.

Obviously there is no difference between a Sat' and Sun' in Wales.

I think you and I are both feeling a bit relieved that we have both got our present series out of the way. ;-)
Bill Phillips: i miscalculated and this series finishes tomorrow with the sweepings from the cutting room floor.
Don't understand Chris's comment - Wales is 'abroad', innit? Foreign country, different language - could be Belgium.
Bill Phillips: Careful tom, there is a real danger my ancestry is Welsh. This is the main reason i have never tried to trace my family tree.

No pretensions with the welcome at the coffee bar then smile
Bill Phillips: I will bet a pound to a chocolate pig that it is very good!
I am not going to spoil Saturday by looking at your last offering.You and Trimbo should be horse whipped for this weeks rubbish.
Who would not want to eat at a place called the Miserable Cow?
Skol!!! Can you still get that stuff? I'd like to try the Miserable Cow for a Laughing Cow cheese. Fine collection, Bill.
