One exciting distraction in June 2020 was a 250 pound bear in my driveway. The neighbor had alerted me, warning me not to go out into my yard. Maybe you saw the post
On Wednesday, when I was filling my gas tank in Connecticut, this sign caught me eye. There were more warning signs on the fence around the dumpster out back.
You know I’ll drive around the block to photograph an abandoned couch or chair.
A toilet or two. More images for the collection.
These two pieces of furniture were found in a single day as I was driving through Connecticut on Wednesday September 29th. .
Just south of Galion Ohio. We were on our way back from Thanksgiving at the Farm.
I was the passenger with my camera at the ready. James was able to tell me when we were getting close.
Although Laura slowed down, she couldn’t stop.
Not really possible to get a good night photo while driving by this front yard filled with colorful
Want to see a better photo of the display? here is a good one in this article in the Galion Inquirer
Nowhere to stop or drive around a block. It was a two lane highway/road. I pressed the shutter as fast as I could.
You get the idea and can appreciate all the effort this family went to decorating. WOW. Turns out they have been doing this for twenty years.

Maybe there will be another opportunity.

“Given the pervasiveness of Frost’s lines, it should come as no surprise that the popularity of “The Road Not Taken” appears to exceed that of every other major twentieth-century American poem, including those often considered more central to the modern (and modernist) era.”Author Orr listed the GOOGLE stats of searches to prove it! Who knew this particular was so popular?Parts of verses still stick in my mind and when I saw this scene in the woods, they came right up. When I was in grade school, we had to memorize a poem a week and recite it from memory.
Yes, an unexpected bunch of bananas. We were driving down to the swim meet to watch Jack and Maura and my grandson Michael spotted a bunch of bananas in the grass. I said “quick, take a picture of them” and he did.
So Michael is the guest blogger today with the bunch of bananas he spotted and captured with the phone.
