Rubbish Tuesday

These people decided to get creative with their old run-down satellite dish instead of just taking it down. It was facing a busy highway, so I was lucky I didn't get run over trying to take this picture! Linking with Rubbish Tuesday.

September City Daily Photo Theme Day: Rust and Ruins

The Old City Waterworks is a historic site located near downtown Tallahassee. Built in 1904, it was the city's first public utility facility. Until the turn of the last century, water had been obtained from area springs. This proved hazardous for health reasons and also for fighting fires in the city. The waterworks were remodeled in the 1920's and 1930's, but closed in 1980, after being added to the US National Register of Historic Places on January 31, 1979. In 2007, it was restored with funding assistance from the Florida Department of State. As you can see from these pictures, the area could probably use a little sprucing up.

My little blog break lasted much longer than I had planned, but I'm back today with a Theme Day post. I hope to start posting regularly again if I can get out and get some new pictures. I have been hampered with an injured knee after I sustained two nasty falls while on my vacation in England and France earlier this summer. The knee is finally feeling better and I am actually able to walk without my cane now, even if I am a bit slow! To see other City Daily Photo bloggers' take on this month's theme, please visit HERE.

Weekend Reflections

My little grandson having fun with his reflection while we were waiting for story time to start at our local library. Linking with Weekend Reflections.

P.S. I might be posting and commenting sporadically for the next month or so. Lots of fun summer activities planned and my two oldest grandkids will be staying with me a lot. I'm excited for them to get here!

SkyWatch Friday: Hanging by a Thread

This Spanish moss has a small dead branch tangled up in it and is barely hanging on to that oak tree. This picture was taken just as the sun was going down. Linking with SkyWatch Friday.

signs, signs and Good Fences

There was no room for the sign between the fence and the parking spot, but don't park here unless you are driving an alternative fuel vehicle or you will be towed! This sign is located on the Florida State University campus. Linking with signs, signs and Good Fences.

Donations Accepted

Lately I've noticed quite a few of these purple donation bins around town. It looks like a worthy cause to me and you can visit their website here.
