This windvane is on top of the local lumber store which is now out of business (Building for Sale). John Whitfield is a local artist and it would be easy to publish more of his work here and I hope to. Here are three more from different locations in town.
The truck Colors Design Shape Details- These could all be important to tell about, but now, just look.

Ice on the corner of the front windshield The atmosphere was just right to see the windshield tinting highlighted by the ice and filtered sun. Kinda cool. This is what the roads were like which makes me tense and snappy... I remind Mike, "It's stupid for us to be driving on "sheer ice", like it's new information or he could change it.
Traveling in a quick-coming ice storm, stopping to scrape ice from the front windshields when wipers and heater can't keep up, I wonder whatever happened to the ice scraper.

Are you enjoying the ice capades?"
My brothers used to have a Rupp minibike when we were kids. They'd drive like crazy around the yard. I was able to take a turn once in awhile. I wasn't as crazy about it. I remember speeding out and unbeknownst to me, the back tire was in a pile of dog doo. The tire spun it up and onto my hair. I screamed like a girl and ran into the house to take the hottest shower I'd ever taken and to wash my hair at least 5 times. That's just one of my memories of our lime green Rupp minibike.

The Warren Building is where my folks, the girls and I used to meet for breakfast almost every Friday morning for a time while the girls and I home schooled. Sweet memories indeed. My Mom has great memories of she and her mom (my grandma) eating there together. The McPherson Courthouse is across the street and is reflected in the window.
I noticed the bulldog in the window of "The Rare Find" while I sat in the car waiting on Mike to finish an errand. I took photos until the dog noticed and began to bark. Speaking of bulldogs...
