Member Voice - about 'Fences'

January 8, 2010 'Fences' by Sandra Leigh
"All over my town there are fences - tall ones and short ones, old and new, elegant and shabby. They all have something to say - like "Keep out," "Be careful!" (like this one) or "Stay right where you are," "I'm utterly exhausted" or "Look at me. Aren't I splendid?" Some have gates; others simply define a space or support a heavy vine. What kinds of fences are there in your town? Do they really make good neighbours? Or do they just isolate us? " Sandra Leigh
I think this is going to be one our fun topics and look forward to returning our focus to Our Towns for the Friday shoot-out. See you on Friday. GingerV

  3. It is fun riding around town look for fences with "personality" or with a definite message.

    Weather's too hot.

    Cheers,
