Scavenger IV 1 – 16

1. A water tower – now converted to a home

2. A picket fence

3, A service vehicle

4. A pond

5. A giant tube

6. A brick street

7. A scoreboard – never thought I would find this but it was right down the street!

8, A pile of bricks – are they still bricks if they aren’t red? Found the answer myself. “Definition brick: 1. a rectangular block of hard material used for building walls and houses.”

9. House with a turret

10. Red flowers – I had so many nice poppy pictures, it was hard to choose.

11. Road hazard

12. More likely to find a Bavarian May pole in Minnesota than a barn quilt in Bavaria – so I created one.

13. Electric substation – I knew there was one in the area but couldn’t remember exactly where. Janos found it with Google.

14. A water feature – Earlier in the year I posted a picture of this fountain with Easter decoration. Now it’s decorated with beautifully scented roses.

15. Post office deposit mail box

16. Gas station

I am pretty sure I’ll get a foot bridge, a teeter-totter (we called them see-saws, and they have become rare) and a mini liquor bottle – but I don’t know about the darned dog house!

    I have not signal to even see your photos, let alone post any of mine (will have on Tuesday), but maybe a response will go through. I just wanted to say that I too always called it a see-saw. I wonder if it is an east coast thing.
    I do so look forward to seeing everyone’s finds ;’-)

      They were called see-saws here too — the trick was to hit the ground so hard you knocked your partner off their end — as Scott pointed out sometime ago, its a wonder we survived our youth. 🙂

    16 out of 20 right out of the box! Fantastic!
    Great assembly of photos — including the barn quilt, which, incidentally, Helen approves of — considering the maypole/MN and the lederhosen/JHooterville scarcity. And also for your continued impeccable integrity.
    The water tower conversion is incredible!

    Every one of your pictures is great. For some reason, the immaculate appearance of your gas station totally freaked me out.

    I would love to see the interior of that water tower converted to a home. And yes, they are see-saws.

    Interesting that many of us know them as see-saws, and they sure have become a rarity! Good finds Suzanne — I had not even thought a water tower could be made into a home! That looks quite interestg.
