It is time to give it to 'frankie8'. See the bottom of this post for the answer.

Still trying to my rhythm back, hopefully I'll do this on a regular basis, even if turns out to be less than once a week.

To that end, you can help by sending suggestions for subjects. I've done more than 150 of these, at last count, and my "dry periods" have gotten, as you might notice, somewhat longer.

You can send a private message though my account here on the LJW site. Or, to "myfirstname@mylastname.net". Uh, don't actually send it to that address, there is a little decoding you need to do first.

In other news, I'm finally getting around to compiling a list of subjects and links to all the IPS (and before that SMTS) posts. You'd have thought I'd have done that before now, being a software engineer and all. I chalk it up to using my underdeveloped right brain for this.

The rapidity with which the last few subjects have been identified has been, shall we say, distressing. To counter this disturbing trend, I have trekked far off the beaten path to find a subject this week. Of course, far is relative term.

OK, this is the complete photo. I'll provide more hints if this isn't enough.

The image(s) above is(are) of a part of a photo of a subject somewhere in the area. I'll add additional parts of the entire photo over the next few days. You are invited to try to guess the subject and location. I'll notify the first person who correctly identifies the subject or location of the entire photo. That subject or location won't be revealed until later, after the answer is obvious. I suggest that people indicate that their guess is "Final" as opposed to just speculation and limit themselves to one final answer per person.

A piece of play equipment, or maybe sculpture in front of Pinkney Elemenatary.

The green thing is an Aztec manhole cover and the brown things are Mayan manhole covers. They symbolize the trade between the two peoples. The red is the symbol of the vigorous lives of the two peoples and the blue means that the sky is the limit - in trade opportunities. Think Kokopelli!! So, I am going to place this somewhere in Meso-America.

It is going to be part of a scavenger hunt, but I can say it is within a thousand mile radius.

I haven't a clue, but am intrigued. Can't wait to hear where this is and what it is.

David Klamet 5 years, 11 months ago

I will be able to answer the where, but not so sure about the what.

Leslie Swearingen 5 years, 11 months ago

Aha! This is the definitive proof that aliens did visit Meso-America. These poor little guys didn't make it home. Oh, Indiana Jones, where were you when they needed you?

Sunshine Acres playground? final, I guess.

I used to get updates when you posted stuff on my RSS feed, but I don't any more. Sorry I missed a chance to not guess right, sooner!

I had still been checking......you had me stumped. When I saw the second pic, I thought of Little Red Schoolhouse 7th and Alabama. I like your guess too, Nikki:) I don't know which it is, haven't had time to drive by either of them. Just really like seeing all the pics:) Thanks, Dave!!

A birdcage/chicken coop made out of whatever was handy at the time?

An early model two-seater warp flux capacitor with cast iron seats. Tile roof is missing.

Are those the seats from a Lockheed Electra 10E?

Leslie Swearingen 5 years, 11 months ago

OMG! You nailed it, Mr. Roe This is proof of eclectic time travel by aliens. If only we could reach HER in the ether and talk with her, the things we could find out. Who's up for a seance?

"I just added a 3rd image, no one has attempted a guess of a subject in the current space time continuum." That sends chills down my spine. So, no one in THE CURRANT SPACE TIME CONTINUUM has guessed right, does that mean that back on the little aliens home world they are LTAO?

Not sure what or where is is, but I bet the city will pay $50,000 for it as art to be displayed downtown.

The Moody Blues is one of my top favorite bands. Loved their music.

LadyJ 5 years, 11 months ago

Well it looks like Dave has people "stumped" on this one. Looks like Pickney school. Final. At any rate, that looks like an underpass across the street.
