An Inexpensive Date! March 21, 2010

On Friday it was $2 apiece to get into the bulb show, and Susan was in heaven.

On Saturday it was a walk up a dirt road and through unsigned pastures and farm lots, which undercut Friday’s extravagance by, um, $2 apiece, and Susan was again ecstatic.

I am such a lucky guy!

Behind an old metal-roofed barn we found an extremely roughly hewn three inch “washer,” torch-cut from plate steel, and an old rusted cotter pin, both of which will likely find their way into Susan’s collages of Found Object Art.  Then, rounding a corner, we came face to face with The Locals, who seemed baffled by our presence, giving us the “Whatchoo Lookin’ At” eye:

We were, in fact, looking at an old International Harvester farm truck, dazed by a konk on the noggin from a falling tree but, judging by her tires, far from dead:

I thought the black and white rendition afforded the old gal the dignity she deserved.

Susan, bless her impish heart, seemed to think this was great fun!

Farther up in the pastures, while enjoying a spectacular view, she found a large bone.  It was a sun-bleached bovine scapula, a gift which had her all but dancing in the fields.

Did I mention that I’m a lucky guy?
