Pulling out of the Kmart lot and turning right both Ben and I let out a cheer of excitement when we saw this unexpected inflatable infront of the Mattress Warehouse store on Route 33 in Harrisonburg.
Here is a work related Big Thing. We had this built for the Consumer Electronics Show when we introduced our line of surge suppressors. This baby could probably take some big hits.
This is a Big Clay Pot (actually a Big Plastic Pot) that I got on US-322/US-1 near Concordville, PA. Since we took this image I have seen a lot of these big pots around laying on their sides with flowers or some such thing growing out of them. A cornucopia of plants.
Here I am in Dresden, Ohio at the Longaberger Factory. Big baskets all around. You can take a factory tour, make your own basket, it’s quite the place. They even have bus tours here for the fanatical amongst us. I’m not the fan in my house but I appreciate the operation from a business standpoint. What a money-maker!
I noticed these chairs outside a branch of Surfside Casual in Somers Point, NJ last summer. Never made it back until this Spring. I got ’em and I’m glad. They bear an amazing similiarity to the two chairs we found earlier on the way to Long Beach Island.
On our way to drop Andy off at college last summer I was looking for a pair of Big Boots that I could have sworn was on US-31 north of Indianapolis. Well I didn’t find the boots but check out this trowel. Of course it was in a garden center.
A particularly uninspiring image and a chincy inflatable. On top of that I had to plod through the snow to get there. Well, one of these images has to be my least favorite and if you haven’t guessed by now, here it is.
I don’t think that this image fits all of my criteria, but I like it so much that I just have to include it. As a matter of fact I purchased a hubcap a few years ago for our 1985 Voyager. If you had a Voyager you know how bad the hubcap design was that year.
Here is another inflatable called in by a bunch of new Bird Dogs at Greenwood Park Swim Club (Go Frogs! Beat Greenfields!!!)
This may one of the sorriest of inflatables that I have ever seen. Dirty, underinflated, what a mess. I don’t understand how a business owner would think that this would attract customers into the showroom. Beats me!
Goodyear, Firestone, I don’t have preference. Here is another inflatable found on US-30, the White Horse Pike. Quite a surprise to find this one. Inflatables are opportunistic experiences when you are involved in this hobby.
Hey Romeo, here’s to my Italian Bird Dog. He gave me info on these chairs. I just never made it to LBI. We usually hit the shore south of Atlantic City. These were both in front of Surfside Casual Furniture on Rt. 72 just east of US-9. Could be easy to miss if you weren’t looking for them.
Lookin’ pretty good outside Skippers up in the Seattle area. I would guess they had seafood as a specialty. Notice the dress, I was working (ha, ha!). I’ve been back but neither Skippers nor the anchor is there any longer. Things may be Big but that does not mean they are permanent.
In Indian River, Michigan you can find this inspiring site. Services are held outside here weather permitting. I knew about this Big Cross for a long time but didn’t realize how I would impact me.
What can I say about this piece of American Automotive Art. This huge tire stands beside litter strewn I-94 in Allen Park, MI. I-94, appropriately enough, when it enters Detroit is named the Henry Ford Expressway. How ’bout that.
People from Philadelphia are familiar with this Big Clothes Pin since it located across from City Hall at Broad and Market. My sister Irene took the image with great aplomb. Afterward we had lunch at Cafe Warsaw and had elegant Polish food. (No kidding, it’s a great place.)
A pretty good quality Big Chair. It’s not always outside, note the casters on the bottom of the legs. I got this image courtesy of my Bird Dog Jan. She has a pretty good sense of humor even though she she works in HR. (That might be a mistake, poking fun at HR, but we (me) Big Picture Takers live close to the edge.)
