Y/Alphabe-Thursday

 Yellow caboose

Y is for YELLOW

This yellow caboose is a tourist attraction at a hamburger place  just south of Cottage Country on Ontario Provicial Highway 11.

Ice on yellow pine needles

A leftover photo from last December's ice storm. Let's hope we see nothing like that treacherous storm this year! Although I do admit it was fun taking photos of the aftermath.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

No longer the last car on a train this is about the only place one will see a caboose any more.

Lovely yellows EG. The last one is a magical gift from Mother Nature, but no, I hope you don't get a bad ice storm this winter.

I am always looking for a nice yellow color in nature and objects when I go out. And it's really hard to find sometimes. Your images are great.

Lynn said...

the ice on the pine needles is a fabulous shot!

William Kendall said...

Ah, I presume that burger joint would be Webers?

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Lovely shots. I was also going to say Weber's.

Mary Hone said...

I've never seen a yellow caboose. I remember waving to the guy at the end of the train as a kid.

TexWisGirl said...

very cute caboose. (that sounds bad...) ;)

Judy said...

I love taking photos of the ice after a storm!! Sometimes I wish I could keep some of the stuff I find encased. It would make such wonderful earrings...

Linda W. said...

When I was a little kid, I loved watching trains pass by and always waited to see the caboose. This is a nice use of an old train car.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, I loved those cabooses when I was little, too!! How fun! I'm glad they saved it!! Great shots for the day as always!! Hope your week is going well!!

Birdman said...

The yellow caboose is cool but the flower, frozen in ice, would be my choice.

Lois said...

Unusual to see a yellow caboose. The pine needles are so pretty!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I bet that is a fun place to go. Love the ice pic too ... But hope your winter is a bit milder this go-round.

You scared me a bit with the ice shot, EG! Love the yellows you showed today.

Revrunner said...

I've sometimes thought old cabooses would make great mobile offices. :-)

Love the caboose!

WONDERFUL post today. I love the yellow caboose, it is really pretty and well kept. Reminds me of the red one I showed at the McDonald's a few weeks ago. But yours is prettier and well cared for. OHHHH, your ice on the pine needles is a masterpiece, really! I have never seen anything like it! It looks like a golden ice flower. You really should blow it up, frame and hang it somewhere.

Ginny said...

P.S. If I tried to snap this ice flower, I would slip and break my neck! How did you do it?

Halcyon said...

It has been so warm here in Berlin (16 degrees today), I don't even want to think about snow and ice! Hope you will have a milder winter this year. Love the yellow caboose.

thanks for all your comments on my blog :)

I really like that Yellow caboose

Hilary said...

Very cheery post. I love the last image, especially. We were lucky to avoid that ice storm.

Tex just cracks me up.

Craver Vii said...

That caboose is a very brilliant yellow. There was a house in my town that was painted that color (brighter, actually) with blue trim. It was more than noticeable, and I think the owner did not like peoples' reactions, because a few months later it was repainted with a more tame color.

I'll be in the shop!

eileeninmd said...

I'm the thickie from Down Under who has never heard of a Caboose (had to google it!) mind you as the Mum from Melbourne we never hear of ice here either apart from that we purchase in bags when we have a big party coming up - ha ha!!
Great photos :)

I like your Yellow Caboose, Ms. TG. Let us hope they stay in place there and not roll away.
I wanted to change the Yellow Submarine song to Yellow Airplane but I waited too long.
Our cabooses are red, maroon, and green here. The green come from Mexico, I suppose if I see a yellow one it will be from Canada.

I think they chose a great colour of yellow for this cab. I love the last shot very much.

The caboose is history now, but I only remember red ones. I enjoyed seeing a yellow one!

Jack said...

Three nice yellow choices, EG. I don't usually associate cabooses with yellow.

Indrani said...

The last one looks so magical.
