NIMFY, not NAMBLA…"Not in my front yard", there will be no talk of man boy love on my blog!
Wacky people are great. I’m talking about wacky people who just do crazy stuff, but stuff that does not hurt anyone, and actually gives people something to talk about.
Without wacky people there would be no insane decoration at Christmas, the season would be more boring. Without wacky people who would have invented silly putty, or yoyo’s. Only a wacky person would make a car out of LEGOS or a guitar out of a cigar box.
Wacky people make the world more interesting. They are fun people. Fun people, unless of course, these people are your next door neighbors.
On the way to my dentist I pass a house owned by wacky people. At first glance their front yard looks like there is a party going on. People assembled around a BBQ, others sitting and chatting, others just wandering around…except they are not wandering around, they do not move.
This front yard is covered with mannequins.
Interesting, even fun, unless of course this scene was next door to your house.
|Bad pictures, car behind was honking!|
I Googled for an answer to what was going on in this yard.
Turns out the old couple that lives in the house had an issue with cars coming off a nearby highway and driving by too fast. These people are artists and they decided if they put up a man who appeared to be crossing the road, cars would slow down.
Before long they added a few more mannequins and as artists and wacky people are prone to do, they did not stop. There must now be 20-30 of these mannequins in this yard.
They have been there for several years. I don’t think they will be coming down soon. They survive rain, snow and wind.
People now do slow down when they come off the highway. They often stop and take pictures. I get a kick out of this yard whenever I pass it.
Wacky people are fun, they make the world a little bit more interesting.
Of course they are not my neighbors. If they were I would think, please, NIMFY!
