I love it ... but I've got nothing. Anyone else want to take a crack at captioning this one?

I've got nothing either but that is one freaky wall.

Dixie Jane said...

Who took big bites out of this wall?

Mister Earl said...

"Okay, who ordered the scallops?"

Judy Williams said...

I kind of had the same idea as Mr. E. It's like a giant jigsaw puzzle peice

dbdubya said...

A skateboarder's dream.

WV: whorr - since it's Sunday, I'll leave that one alone. Mr. Earl? You've always got a good response.

Laurie said...

Scallops!
hahahahahahaha!

I love you guys. DB, I thought of the skateboarder idea, too.

Seriously, though. What is UP with that fence? Or should I say, what is up and down with that fence? I love it. Unique and kooky -- two of my favorite descriptions.

What happened to the potted plants that should be on top of the upswing between the scallops???

Mister Earl said...

Where is it, Laurie?

The potted plants would be an obstacle to the skateboarders. Reminds me that in England, people embed broken glass shards from bottles in the tops of walls to prevent people from climbing over.

Laurie said...

Grand. I think. Or maybe it's Arroyo. No, I think it's Grand. I drive around there so much I forget street names. It's on the same street as Tyler's gorgeous Florentine villa.

dbdubya said...

Tyler's villa is on Grand.

Laurie said...

I can always count on you, DB. :-) I should do a series of pictures called Stump DBDubya. heh heh

dbdubya said...

Better do it quickly cause my So Pas memory is fadin'

Laurie said...

Blame it on the altitude!

dbdubya said...

The altitude, age, and looking forward instead of to the rear.

Grand...I think the wall used to be all red...who the he'll painted it white?

and Earl---they do that glass thing in Mexico as well---I remember pondering as a 10yo, how much beer or soda one would have to drink to make a decent sized yard "safe" with broken bottle bits! am sure in SoPas it'd be deemed "unseemly", unless the glass were color coordinated.

As to the caption...I was thinking more along the lines of "who let little bit alone with the router?" but geez, she sure did a good job making it even on her first try!

and wv was "reamshe"...which might just describe this pattern on the fence!

I've seen the broken bottles in the top of walls in South Africa as well. Cheaper than barbed wire and more colorful.

My mother put thumbtacks pin part up held down with scotch tape on our window frames after a rash of burglaries in the neighborhood where windows were broken to unlock latches and then the windows were lifted up by the frame to crawl in. I always thought that was brilliant.

Trish, love the caption.

I can't believe people came up with something, and not just something but somthings, and good somethings. I would like to have seen the expression on the mason's face when the designer explained the concept. Deadpan, probably.

Mister Earl said...

Years ago a real GIANT lived here. This is a remnant from his wine rack.

Laurie said...

Ha!
