F/ Alphabe-Thursday

 FIRE engine on the side post of a bench, Seaforth, Ontario

Can you hear the siren blaring? NO?! I can... but perhaps that's because I'm just a kid at heart.  This fire engine is part of a public bench on a main street in Seaforth and I just had to take a photo.

 Longer view of bench

I guess no one wants to sit on that snow-coved bench. Go FIGURE.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

I would have taken the photo too. What a lot of work to carve that.

Kathy said...

Is it actually a part of the bench or separately attached. Pretty cute.

Halcyon said...

This is so very cute! You need to submit it to A Bunch of Benches. :)

Jill said...

That is just so fun! What a great way to dress up a bench!

That is a great addition to a bench!

Adorable! My kids would have loved to have climbed atop that fire engine - snow or no snow!

Craver Vii said...

I can hear that siren, EG. ;-)

SNOW!!! I happen to be one of those crazies that welcomes the arrival of snow. I don't understand how my friends and coworkers can choose to stay here (near Chicago) and not like the snow.

All things in their season, that's what I say.

What vehicle ,if any is at the other end of the bench.any tribute to everyday heroes always touches my heart. (ps. I can hear the sirens too...although those might be real since i live in the hood.)

Jack said...

Very cute. But I don't like seeing that snow.

I like that fire truck! The bench would be perfect for the summer to sit a while.

Lowell said...

A wonderful piece of public art. I'm surprised and pleased that no one has tried to knock it off or otherwise ruin it.

What do ya call all that white stuff?

JDaniel4's Mom said...

This is so cool! Without snow my three year old would sit on the bench and take in the truck for hours.
