Fence Duty

Welcome to another 

The first responsibility of any good fence is to protect something.

"Priceless things matter not for their value, but because they offer us an enduring reminder of stability and permanence." 
Barbara Taylor Bradford.

Fence Guards on Duty
Outside Excelsior Museum

If you missed E.T from yesterday
here's another photo before-
E.T. Phones home.

Why not?
Stick a fence behind a 3 pronged pitchfork made from a tree branch.

Who's that talking?  Was that you tree?

I know  I heard somebody!

Bark, bark, sniff, sniff, BARK!

Oh never mind, plenty of squirrels to hunt for.


"Love your neighbor as yourself;
 but don't take down the fence." 
Carl Sandburg

with a Chef stuck on a fence!


Having fled his picturesque mansion of stone and mullioned windows,

you're now viewing this dysfunctional fry-cook chef who's completely unexposed straight from his bungalow which normally without a whimper this knucklebone 
would seek cover inside under his projector, during a hurricane if, he wasn't stuck on a fence, held captive by T-Rex.

Thank you all for stopping by, and no matter where you are today, I just bet you'll catch a fence on duty!  Enjoy your day.

Great fences - and skilled word play too.
Every chef should face a dinosaur. I think.
