Junque Extraordinaire

I know, four years later, this picture was of Mr. Sherman’s collection of curiosities.  It’s a head-turner, every time I pass by.

It takes a
Sense of humor
Some craziness
More, than a
Smidgen, of
Zaniness

Marching, to
A different
Drummer, to
See hidden
Beauty, treasure
Mementos, under
The surface

Among
The whatnots
Thing-a-ma-jigs
Bric-a-brac
Beneath, the
Ordinary
Lies, the
Extraordinary

From the Ashes

Formerly know as Blue Collar Country, the development consortium couldn’t pull the string.  The property sat idle, while weeds grew for several years.  Which was just as well, because, something bigger and better came along.

From the ashes came OWA, a family recreational complex going up in front of my eyes.  OWA, is a Native American word meaning “big water.”  The big water is a 14 acre lake in the center of the development with bridges leading to main attractions.

Sponsored by the Poarch Creek band of Creek Nation, Phase I of the complex is scheduled to open on or before Memorial Day.  Seven days a week, weather permitting, work goes on.  Some of the rides–which will total 21, can already be seen.

Modern Suburban Fable #5

Bent over grannies with bloomers

Woodsmen that chopped

Wood, with the wind

Concrete frogs, lizards with bright painted spots

Colored rocks, fake boat docks

Red birds, blue birds, and one strange

Bird–that looked a lot like a buzzard

Front lawn props that outdid Disney’s Small World

It was rumored there were still more to come

Pieces of the past–flags, patriotic streamers

An old man’s memories of good times

That should have lasted longer

Begged to be understood
