Wilderness Wood, East Sussex

Janine Davies' words and photos:

So many wheelbarrows hard at work at Wilderness Wood yesterday! Mainly leaf collecting and transporting, and natural Xmas decorations too. I particularly like the wheelbarrow with Holly in it. 😊

I’m so glad you collect wheelbarrows. The kids at Friday Club really enjoyed listening to why I was taking pictures of wheelbarrows. They totally got the learning to be had from collecting them. It really appealed to them. 😊

Seaweed, North Korea

It seems the legs and bucket are metal, but the rest is wood.
Wheelbarrows are often used to represent hard work, in photos and videos.

Looks like that was a lot of work. Even the tools are resting.

Seems like a bad plan

Maybe it's not as dangerous as it looks.

Israeli marijuana and a miniature wheelbarrow

The image links to an article called "Israeli Kibbutz to Become Worldwide Medical Marijuana Hub," by Liel Leibovitz
Laurie McPherson found this and linked me. I didn't realize it was on someone else's own page, so an interesting exchange took place. I was a little.... snarkastic. Perhaps I should not have been.

A miniature wheelbarrow illustrating a pot story. Sufficiently obscure.

Well thanks for the wheelbarrow! They won't be able to use wheelbarrows to ship their stuff "worldwide." I wonder which internationall shipping company they think is going to carry their stuff reliably through customs to all those other countries!? :-) People can't legally mail it from Colorado to Oregon. I don't know how UPS or FedEx feel about it.

OH, I read the article. Canadians will be importing shipping containers of the stuff. I wonder if the Chihuahuan druglords will send out some speedboats? Poor landlocked Chihuahua...

Little pirate ships claiming shipping containers, and then.... DOH!!!

The owner of the page (who had linked the article) wrote:
I think it will be rendered as a pharmaceutical. Goes where it goes. Chill out, relax, have an open mind. It's all cool.

-=-Chill out, relax, have an open mind.-=-

Golly gosh! Thanks!

So I looked him up and he's a Rabbi in Texas.
Marijuana isn't legal in Texas in any form. Not federally, not in the state. They may be moving toward limited medical uses, which is peachy keen, but at the moment, no.

I had been joking with Laurie about a wheelbarrow, and the Mexican drug lords south of New Mexico, in Chihuahua. I didn't mean to disturb the Texas/Israeli peace.

I didn't expect to be seen as closed minded for joking about mail, shipping companies, and pirates from Chihuahua.

I don't know if that's marijuana in the wheelbarrow. For purposes of this blog, what it is is a wheelbarrow.
