Lebanon, Vermont



Behind a grocery store in Lebanon, Vermont, autumn 2014.
The color of the leaves, and with the tools and milk crate...



Some trees had turned and some had not.

"More fun than a…"

Description on the facebook page where this was found:
Back To The Wild

Wheelbarrowing orangutans at the International Animal Rescue center in Ketapang, West Kalimantan, Indonesia.

These baby orangutans are being cared for at this center, and are being taken by wheelbarrow from their night cages to a forest play area where they will spend their day learning skills to survive in the wild.

Laurie McPherson sent it with the note "More fun than a…"

Resting in the grass

The wheelbarrow where we're staying in Camden, Maine. The sparkly spider webs might not show in the photos, but I saw them.

Wheelbarrow as a chair



Alicia Gonzalez sent this and wrote, "Have You seen this idea before?...I never thought of using it as a chair!!"

I followed the link from the photo above, and someone named Claire Lai had written "I love this lady, she spent most of her life building a theatre on the side of a cliff in Cornwall, by hand with salvaged materials and cement. It is the Minack theatre and she well and truly earned her rest in the wheelbarrow."

But my response to Alicia was: "I hadn't. There are some uncomforable looking archeologist-naps, in a photo in a museum in England. http://wheelbarrowthings.blogspot.com/2013/07/fishbourne.html later note: More comfortably, Gigi Polikowsky resting

Stephanie Marr added: "The woman in the photo is Rowena Cade. She spent quite a bit of time around wheelbarrows :) http://www.minack.com/history.htm
