Only one more of my miscellaneous collections of pictures to go; here they are.
I loved this quirky character on top of an old stump.
I can think of no other houses in Meaford that have a name out front, but this one does, and a humble little cottage 'The Roost' is! They must keep chickens.
Have you ever wondered what all these numbers on hydro poles are for? If anyone knows, let me know too.
A resident on Nelson West is apparently fixing up old riding lawnmowers and selling them. He had several parked out front in the spring.
And this old tractor, one of two on the street, still hasn't moved.
I was quite astonished the other day to spot this giant door knocker, quite the medieval looking style! I've driven past this house on every ride I've done and just never noticed this before, trick of the light I suppose.
Last week was a roasted red pepper day here. Mrs. F.G. bought half a bushel of Red Shepherd Peppers (I didn't know there were so many different kinds of peppers)! And she roasted them all; they're now in the freezer.
Coming around another corner I saw this tree-cutting operation going on. That's a huge cherry picker, with someone far up into that White Ash tree. If you look at the top of the picture, you'll get some idea of the ash dieback that's going on here. There are a lot of trees that will have to come down!
And another of my pet peeves, gravel left on a paved road - horrible for a wheelchair - after construction. Don't know why clean-up isn't included in construction projects!
And the Meaford Fall Fair was on a week ago, but I missed it this year. Exhibitors put in such an effort over the year, but those who win ribbons will enjoy the accomplishment for the entire year to come!
Great street scenes, except the gravel on the road. We had a walk, paved somewhat with concrete, on a really steep slope, then some bright dude thought gravel on top would be nice. Anyone who has trouble with their footing would get to slide down on their keester! I would just walk down the road nearby, and hope no cars were insistent at the same time!ReplyDelete
Love this variety! Always something of interest!ReplyDelete
Kubota, the king of all the ride on mowers. The old tractor, I often wonder what happened to the Fordson Major when my Dad left our farm. Gravel, guess they don't even consider anyone else having a problem. And frozen peppers, the way to go and have some rich red goodies later on.ReplyDelete
I really enjoy random shots of what is out in the world. Everyday shots that focus on the usual but look more unusual as you focus in. I remember pushing my wife for a half year in a wheel chair and there are obstacles large and small.ReplyDelete
This is an interesting post about everyday sightings that make your trip interesting.ReplyDelete
If the power goes out, the power company can track it from post to post by their numbers.ReplyDelete
Love the first character and the door knocker too!ReplyDelete
I like that door knocker.ReplyDelete
That door knocker is simply amazing. Great selection of pictures, FG. Loved this post.ReplyDelete
The door knocker is something else, and there is something forlorn about the old tractor sitting back in the trees. I agree, clean-up should be part of every construction project.ReplyDelete
That's quite the door-knocker. Virtually all the white ash here is dead, only seedlings and very small are trees are still alive, very tragicReplyDelete
I too like the quirky character on top of the old stump - great picture.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
Just today I noticed a sign advertising an upcoming Fall Fair. It's wonderful that we can have them once again. Neat door knocker!ReplyDelete
I thought the first photo was a caricature of the Furry Gnome his very self. The door knocker reminds me of Bob Marley coming through the door in The Christmas Carol. Like you, I too have a curious mind about things like all that stuff on the power pole.ReplyDelete
