Welcome everyone! Snow and cold are gone here. It's Indian Summer - yesterday was 60F/15C, today is supposed to get up to 68F/20C! I'm lovin' it!
I'm sitting here at the computer with one of my Africam cams on, watching Wildebeest and Impalas at dusk. Three Giraffes wandered through a few minutes ago. With Daylight Savings Time, South Africa is now 7 hours ahead of me so, while it's 11:00 a.m. here right now, it's 6:00 p.m. there.
This first set of photos I took on my way back from church on Sunday. Someone new moved into this house within the past year and, recently, he put out some interesting yard decorations . . . and I love them!
The first is a 1940's Farmall tractor. The owner said it originally had steel(?) wheels instead of rubber tires because of the war effort.
This awesome Texaco Sky Chief gas pump has been restored. I forget if he said it was from the 30's or 40's. His two dogs were running around and jumping all over me so it was hard to focus! Notice the hydrant on the right - probably for the dogs!
We never got around to talking about this old fire truck, because our discussion had turned towards the dogs. One of them had snuck through the invisible fence and was sauntering down the street! I had a nice visit with them all!
I forgot to show you this first aid kit last week, from my auction stash. I don't know the year, but it's got some cool stuff inside!
Don't forget that Friday, Nov. 11, is the deadline for signing up with the Tag Swap! ;)
