Time Capsule

 
Posted by Picasa


I found this placque on the sidewalk in Ponce de Leon Park downtown. One of the things I love most about this blog is the fact that I'm constantly discovering new things while looking for interesting pictures to post. I've walked past this many times and never noticed it before.

Oh, blogging makes you keep your eyes open to what is going on.

Oh, I'd be too curious to wait that long! I know what you mean, I'm learn something new everytime I go out, too :)

Now that will be interesting to see what's inside & see the difference in what they'll have then.

1976! Wonder if it contains an old 8-track tape?

Halcyon said...

Cool! They had something like this in Tulsa, OK a few years back for the centenniel of the state. Unfortunately, many of the items did not survive the time capsule well. I don't think it was as watertight as they would have liked.

There were a lot of those capsules buried back in 1976. It seems so long ago now.

The camera does give us another eye, doesn't it?

Clytie said...

Isn't it amazing how much more we see when we really look? Even in our own back yard! I find this is true every day.

I agree with B Squared - 1976 seems so long ago.

Louis la Vache said...

Just think! You only have another 66 years to wait to find out what's in it!

;-D

That is really cool!

It reminds me that my school did a time capsule in 1976. I think I was in the third grade. I can't remember what I put in it and I'm pretty sure I'll be long gone when it's opened in 2076. :)

Time capsules are a wonderful idea. I wish the idea was older, and I could discover what is in one made in 1910 for example.

PAK said...

Time capsule? A good idea!
Yes, You're right -- sometimes blog helps to discover something. On condition that it is enough time...

VP said...

I heard they started something like this here either. It's a pity we'll not be around in 2076, I'm so curious...

Tanya said...

Oh we had a time capsule at our little courthouse in Ga...can't remember when they were going to open it...should have thought to take a picture lol

Dianne said...

that's so cool!
we did a time capsule when I was in middle school
I can't remember when it was supposed to be opened LOL

you're right about how blogging makes you notice things - it's the joy of sharing them :)

Great find. Taking pictures is a great way to explore and find things we would never see otherwise.

Julie said...

Looking down (and looking up) are essential to the well-dressed blogger!

Jacob said...

You're right about how we so often pass by interesting things and never see them. I like time capsules. But I ain't gonna be around when this is opened!

We did a time capsule in middle school, and I just read on Facebook that they can't remember where they buried it - not kidding! I think they've probably done some renovation since then (good grief I hope so anyway) and the marker got moved. Thanks for stopping by, we are SO excited about Cait's graduation. Her announcements came today, so you know what we'll be doing this weekend :) Kathy

Nice catch of something that is probably overlooked by many folks every day.

1976 does seem quite long ago.

Darryl and Ruth : )

Tash said...

I so know what you mean about seeing things like this for the first time. Ditto on the delights of discovery by blogging.

I graduated HS on the Bicentenial. 100 years is a long time, and so many things in there are probably dated. Do you remember the '70s time capsule that was sent into space?

JM said...

I totally agree with you, Lois, as to the things we discover just because we now have 'blogger eyes', if you know what I mean! :-)))

Pam said...

Wouldn't you just love to be there when they opened it. I have a very inquiring mind.
