Neon Sign - okay, all right, copacetic! 
It would have made me feel more “all right” if they had spelled it properly, but I still like the sentiment.  And I have always loved neon signs.
—Usage note The form alright  as a one-word spelling of the phrase all right  inall of its senses probably arose by analogy with such words asalready  and altogether.  Although alright  is a common spelling inwritten dialogue and in other types of informal writing, all right  isused in more formal, edited writing. 
But nothing is more bothersome than the your/you’re.  Okay, okay, so this evening I am a bit pedantically inclined.  It is sure to pass, … much like a gas bubble.
