Imagine being on a long flight to Milwaukee and seeing a ‘Welcome to Cleveland’ sign out the window as you land.

This guy is a local hero, but some are saying he’s just causing trouble.  Either way, Mark Gubin doesn’t care.

Mark is an artist and photographer in Milwaukee and decades ago he realized that his studio was along the flight path to the local airport. He had the idea to paint “Welcome To Cleveland” on his roof in giant letter. Why? To mess with people mostly.  He’s been doing it for 37 years!!

“It was all tongue-in-cheek, just for fun. Living in the world is not a dress rehearsal. You better have fun with it.”

Great quote.  And very good words to live by!
