By The Side Of The Road

Driving down a busy main highway, we passed this. I wish I knew something about it, but it was not in our city and I never did find out anything. Just a brief glance and snapshots in passing.





  • Let me live in a house by the side of the road,
          Where the race of men go by—
          The men who are good and the men who are bad,
          As good and as bad as I....
    Let me live in my house by the side of the road
          Where the race of men go by—
          They are good, they are bad, they are weak, they are strong,
          Wise, foolish—so am I.
          Then why should I sit in the scorner's seat
          Or hurl the cynic's ban?—
          Let me live in my house by the side of the road
          And be a friend to man.

Odd. And yet curiously interesting.

I don't know what that means either, but I think he's a bit grumpy!

Ann said...

Well that's certainly different. The flag says open so maybe it was some kind of thrift shop

MadSnapper said...

Martha said...

Were they handing out something, from that cooler? I wonder what that little sign said, on the yellow background with the red behind it? Very interesting!! ~Andrea xoxo

Who ever put it all up, should check to see that the flag is unfurled.

Really odd.

Seeing the multi colored tie dye shirt on the dummy, I first thought of LGBTQIA. Don't they us that multi-colored-flag-sign-etc.?

The dummy seems to represent a Native American Indian...

What's the cooler? Are they giving something away, free?

Or wanting to collect money, in it?

You are simply going to have to go back that way, pull in that road ahead, park, and go look closely!!!!!!!!! -grin- You now have to!!!! You have all your readers wondering!!!!!! -gigggles-

Hi Ginny, that is a very interesting sight you captured there. It does make me curious. And I loved the poem. Such a wise poem and one to adhere to.

I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had the flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I've been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting in underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was that I enjoyed smoking and don't want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don't want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children's eyes when I told them about my condition then they started to find a solution on their own to help my condition.I am a 47 now who was diagnosed with COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking in school when smoking was socially acceptable.. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked it. On searching, internet we saw a testimony of a brother, Nathaniel, how he was also cured of COPD lungs. By a doctor Akhigbe and the brother also wrote the doctor contact on the testimony. I contacted the doctor I was writing to the doctor and my husband was writing to him too. The doctor told us what to do and the next week I received the herbal medicine and the following instruction. It was really unbelievable after I finished the medicine. Dr Akhigbe herbal medicine is supernatural, that is how I was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of  Dr Akhigbe with his  herbal medicine cure. Here is his email   [drrealakhigbe@gmail.com}   He has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and other diseases, his medicine will cure you completely and permanently with his natural organic herbs,We received the medicine through courier delivery service. I wish anybody who starts smoking at a young age would realize what will eventually happen to their bodies if they continue that vile habit throughout their life. It's a lesson I learned and never to forget in my life now I promise my God myself and my family never to smoke again.. All thanks to doctor  Akhigbe, the real herbalist doctor with natural herbs who have cured different people with their different problem.
Dr Akhighe also cured diseases like, HERPES, DIABETES, HIV/AIDS, COPD, CANCER,ASTHMA,STROKE,LUPUS,JOINT PAIN,CHRONIC DISEASES,PARKINSON DISEASES,TUBERCULOSIS,HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,BREAST INFECTION,WOMEN SEXUAL PROBLEM, GINGIVITIS, ERYSIPELAS,STAPHYLOCOCCUS,HEPATITIS A/B, QUICK EJACULATION, IMMUNOTHERAPY, GONORRHEA,SYPHILIS,WAST/BACK PAIN,PELVIC INFLAMMATORY, DICK ENLARGEMENT,HEART DISEASES,TERMINAL ILLNESS,SHIFT IN FOCUS,ATAXIA,COMMON COLD, HEART HEALTH, CROHN'S DISEASES,ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER,GRAVES DISEASE,HEARING LOSS, ANTI VIRUS,  INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS,LEUKEMIA,MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS,OBESITY,RABIES,SCOLIOSIS,INFLUENZA, POLIO,JACOB,ETC.
