Oddball & Really Big Toys Challenges – On the Street where I live

Here is my entries for Kammie’s Oddball Challenge. This so also my entry for Nancy’s A Photo A Week Challenge.

I live on a corner house and the side is on a fairly main road in my little town. That road has had some slicing and chopping of cement, crushing cement and sweeping the cement. Here are a few photos I’ve taken. Wouldn’t it be fun to play with these toys every day? Although it does kick up a lot of dust.

Here are a couple of photos of a power saw that cuts through sidewalks and roads.

And then came the machines that crunched up asphalt and spit it into a dump truck. Can you count the people in this photo. THe answer is 5. See if you can find the almost hidden 5th person.

More digging up of the corner across the street from us.

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. Is the 5th person in the truck?
    My boys in my daycare would love to watch these toys everyday!! I don’t believe I’ve ever actually seen a power saw like that before! Thank you! That’s is quite a busy street!


  2. Does the woman on the crew get to drive/operate the big machines? Usually if there is a woman, she is either directing traffic or just moving pick up trucks or the like around. The big road equipment rarely has a woman at the wheel…although I did see one driving a big roller or something one time. I always speculate that the cutie with the long blonde ponytail driving backhoe’s and the like on the road crew may be the contractor’s daughter, or girlfriend. (I’m not sexist, just from the old school female still fighting The Man.

    We just suffered four solid years of upheaval of our main city throughway, which involved widening from 2/3 to 5/6 lanes, It was a giant project that has been under planning for decades. It also included several giant demolition projects, including our oldest school, the Middle School; and a brand new fire station. Actually the building projects were separate from the road project, which had a lot of state funding.

    Yes, the traffic was horrific! The city maintained traffic during the construction, and that is no a maker of happy campers driving through town. Any one with any sense goes around the mess, but the ones that like to complain are loud and mean.

    Then the neighbor across the road with the humungous old tree that came down earlier this year not only had the “Really Big Show!” involving the tree…now they are building what appears to be a garage and a major addition onto the house. Everytime they get a crew over there to start working it pours rain.

  3. You mean the guy driving the truck? He was so close to invisible that it took three looks. It only makes sense that someone had to be behind the wheel even if all you see is the tip of an elbow. 🙂
