Day 211: Roadside Oddity

Just another roadside oddity. As Doug and I drove away from the lake, heading back to the hotel and ice for my knee, we stopped occasionally for a roadside photo. I couldn't quite walk to get into position to change angles, but we were entertained by the interesting things along the way. My sweet DH was willing to stop anywhere I asked! I have no clue what this is. . . it could be farm equipment. . . . it could be something all welded together to be some kind of art sculpture.

Thank you, everyone, for the suggestions and perspectives yesterday on my Scuba Fiasco. Now, I'm thinking along the lines of IF I were to pursue certification, what's my Remediation Plan. I know I wouldn't just sign up for another open water dive; I'd want to do a few things to move me closer to being more comfortable with this.

P.S. Don't you just hate it when you try to type. . . and you have the hiccups?

Oh my...that IS an oddity. Through a lens, a work or art for sure.

Wow, that IS weird! I love that faded blue color of it with the rust accents. And YES, I DO hate it when I have the hiccups when I'm trying to type! SO annoying!

I have NO idea what that is, or what it could be. Maybe something agricultural?

What is that?! So funny. Looks like something out of the movie Robots. :)

Amy said...

Wow, too cool!

Mandy said...

That does look weird! I think it is some fancy piece of farm machinery and I think its great. I really think the hiccups must be some kind of joke of nature, huh? Hope they left you quickly!

Where is that? There are so many oddities along back roads to the lake, aren't there? I've missed your blog over the weekend - you've been busy! I am so excited that zucchini and other veggies are finally ready to be eaten. YUM!

I think it's something created by a North Dakotan (is that how you say it?) with a grand sense of humor! Their plan was for you to drive by with your sore knee and camera and take a picture. They knew you'd put it on your blog and ask what it was and start a lively debate about typing with hiccups. Ü

Guess you could say I have no idea what it is, other than something interesting to look at.

Hugs!

At the risk of sounding like a total country bumpkin, I think I may be able to tell you what this oddity is. My dad collects farm toys and has a Huber threshing machine that looks just like this.
