Big Legs



I drove home from delivering Aimée to a babysitting job a few towns away, taking some back roads in hopes of a lovely scenic picture for today. I stopped at one point and took a whole series of boring landscapes, but I liked this startling sight quite a bit better.

Apparently these are Paul Bunyan's legs. I have no idea what happened to the rest of him, but this web site identifies him as a Paul Bunyan "muffler man" who used to serve as a flagpole. OK!

We have a Muffler Man here in North Carolina! We used to drive by him everyday. Ours actually had a body too. We thought it was Paul Bunyon and that someone had stolen his ax. There was an article in our local paper because they moved him. I'm not sure where or I'd take a picture. But the article said that there was a bunch of them and they used to hold mufflers. How funny is that!
