I think this describes me pretty well. If you don’t figure this out by meeting me or possibly reading my blog…you could figure it out by visiting my backyard. When Tina and I shared our first Christmas we realized how well our oddness matched. We both had the same Christmas flamingo!

Today I’d like to share some of my quirky yard art.

The A – Z Challenge will run through April. Each day is a different letter and a different photo…I hope you all enjoy!

The Muffler Guy

I’ve thought for sometime that I would start a blog. But I never quite knew where or how to begin. I created a page on WordPress several months ago, but had done nothing with it. Then I saw a message from WordPress about lessons on writing a blog. Zero to Hero: 30 days to a better blog, http://dailypost.wordpress.com/zero-to-hero/  I decided to commit to the 30 days of assignments and see if I could get this thing off the ground. 

So tonight my assignment is to use a new element (video, photo, tweet). I chose to add a photo. I enjoy finding odd and quirky objects to take pictures of. And today I tracked down this quirky little guy. I say “tracked down” because I actually saw him last week but didn’t have the time to stop for a picture. So today I returned to the area I had spotted him in and sure enough….he was still there, waiting for his photo shoot!


I’m not sure what it is about these little guys, made up of welded together scrap, but I think they are fun. I often times notice them outside car repair shops and admire the skills involved to create them. Even though they are not pieces of art that will find their way to a cultured art museum….I do believe they are art.

I’m not totally sure how or if this little guy is going to fit into the overall theme of my blog….but I like his appearance and I think his smile is quite charming. So here he is, a man of few words and a snappy hat!
