Sign of the Devil

A  L  O  H  A !

Marin County, California

“Whenever the devil harasses you, 
seek the company of men or drink more, 
or joke and talk nonsense, 
or do some other merry thing. 
Sometimes we must drink more, 
sport, recreate ourselves, 
and even sin a little 
to spite the devil.” 
                       Martin Luther
