Our Town

SAM_6558

A rather anemic home and garden tour was held yesterday, it has been going on for ten years now and they've sort of run out of people willing to put up with 100s of strangers traipsing through their tulips and toilets. The was some entertainment, authentic old-time music (above) and the crazy piano artist (work pictured below), who had one of his dozen pianos actually operating with a player mechanism.

He also had a 70s Oldsmobile hearse that caught The Weaver’s eye:

This year’s effort was sort of a “pig in a poke”, some of the houses originally slated couldn’t be seen, while another was closed due to a family obligation. I think the most we've had was 12, this year there were only 5 houses and an additional 3 gardens.

Oh well, such is life in a small town on the prairie.

In a restored condition that hearse would be a real head turner.

It had a shovel hanging on the back door!
