Unburied Treasure

If a sign like this, propped next to a rickety fence, along side a rural road, hidden by a narrow driveway doesn't set your heart to racing, why then I don't know what to do with you!  Maybe yell "Clear" and shock you with enthusiasm paddles.

If I lived near a coast, I would be a diver exploring the silty depths for buried treasure, but in land locked Arizona, I settle for places like this, where I don't have to get my hair wet or wear an oxygen tank.
Outside there is rusty treasure to sift through, 
buckets and baskets,
 crates and signs, 
posts and boards,  
curry combs, harnesses, tools 
and
tires and wires,
 and 
chairs and wooden bears.

Inside a maze of old railroad cars
 There are more treasures
heaped and glowing
in dusty splendor.

 If you beg me, I'll tell you how to find it.

Hmmmm - I'd need to come down with a large utility trailer. What did you bring home with you?

Holly said...

Fine, I'm begging... Where is this? Also, can one use a curry comb to get rid of Tic Tac termites?

just call me jo said...

I love places like this. Tell Holly and she can drive us there since I can't go any more than 12 miles from Surprise with my limited driving abilities. I love this place where ever it is.

Now dear Larainy, that is just not nice of you to post about such a treasure trove and I live too many state away to justify a little jaunt your way. I am in pain!

I just want to know if you brought Pegasus home to join your daughter's tree friends.

That looks like so much fun to go through! You wouldn't have to shock me with enthusiasm paddles at all!
