J/Alphabe-Thursday

 Junkyard taxi

J is for Junkyard, Junk food  and Junk mail

An auto junkyard is great for rusty photo ops, methinks. Sadly, this taxi had no rust that I could see, which makes me wonder why it was there. This is the kind of car you need to know how to fix yourself. I'm not qualified.

 Junk food

As you know, not all junk rusts. Some satisfy our "sweet teeth." Are you suddenly feeling famished?

I took this camera with my "spy camera." OK, this candy display was at the front of the store and anyone passing by could see what I was doing.  I call it my spy camera because I can slip it into my pocket. Luckily I live in a village and the owners, cashiers and deli workers know who I am.  Either they they are afraid of me or they think I'm totally harmless.

Normally, I would consider this photo a junk photo, but not today!

Fun fire engine mailbox and a container for Junk mail

And what would modern life be without junk mail? Sadly, I cannot remember a time before junk mail in either my real or virtual mailboxes.

Just plain junk

Do you suppose workers were sleeping on the job here?

Fun post! I like the junk mail and the mailbox. Very cute. The Taxi does not look bad, I wonder why it was in the junk yard? Someone's treasure I am sure..Have a happy day!

Andy said...

Almost as junky as the weather.

see you there! said...

I hope someone rescues the taxi. The mailboxes are both very clever. You've shown us junk can be very interesting.

Super post, EG! Love that taxi and it does look like it's in great shape. Gotta wonder why it's sitting there amidst the junk and snow.

I could show you my email box if you want to see junk mail!

Bill Nicholls said...

The Taxi is a Hot Rod, may be it was left there & fogotten about. Never thought about a seperate box fot junk mail which sadly makes up most of mine

Kate said...

You certainly have cluttered up your mind with a lot of junk today! I'd LOVE to have someone fix up that taxi and give it to me. Wouldn't it be fun to have?!

Pamela Gordon said...

Fun junk pictures! The yellow taxi should be restored I'd think. I love junk candy but not junk mail (especially email!). Sleeping on the job? :-) Strange pile of junk there in the last pic. Have a great day!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great example of J's. I love the taxi best.

William Kendall said...

The taxi needs to be restored. Fun shots!

As a junkyard junkie myself I can only admire these photos. Unusual to find anything so brightly coloured being scrapped.

Shammickite said...

Junk Mail! It just fills up the recycling box that is conveniently positioned next to my street mailbox! Love the other pictures, especially the taxi.

TexWisGirl said...

loved the mailboxes. and the mattresses made me laugh!

Linda W. said...

Love the fire engine mailbox! Good interpretations of the "junk" theme.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That "taxi" is someone's project that has a very desirable and expensive hemi engine. They poured a lot of money into it. Think they should of set some cash aside for a garage to house it in. A fun collection of photos here.

WordsPoeticallyWorth said...

That taxi looks to good to be in scrap yard! A nice post.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Halcyon said...

You found some really cute ideas for J day. I especially love the taxi and that mailbox. I want one like that too!

Karen S. said...

Just plain wonderful, every shot. Oh my gosh the mailbox too cute. Just goes to show what's one person's junk can be another persons glory! I'll have to send this link to a blogger/FB friend that would enjoy your junkyard taxi!

Gail Dixon said...

That junk mailbox is awesome. You produced some fun photos for the meme. :)

cieldequimper said...

That's a lot of junk! I'm not sure which one is the scariest, perhaps the food one. But I love the mailbox!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

That taxi looks like it is in better shape than my truck!

Randy said...

You had me at Kit Kat.

Rose said...

I can remember some before junk snail mail...and I really don't get too much now. I found a place to send a letter to for snail mail and it really cut down on ours. Thank God...it was awful how much we got.

Love your photos...and love your spy camera comments.

Small City Scenes said...

I love all you 'J' pics. What a fun mind you have. What is the saying--One man's junk is another's treasure'--Mebbe so. MB

JM said...

That taxi should be saved. How very cool!

fredamans said...

That old taxi all souped up looks like it should be inside getting some tlc, not outside in the weather.
