Accidental Turns

On our way back from our weekend jaunt to Louisville last weekend, we got off on a side road that turned out not to be the road I wanted.

My poor GPS system was confused. The route guidance was literally drawing circles on the display. The system's voice guidance, normally full of confidence as she announces directions and commands, was reduced to soft sobs of desperation.

I didn't care. We were heading in the general direction that we needed and seemed to be paralleling the interstate. Along the curvy, winding road, we found these two long forgotten work horses. I felt sad for them. I wonder if they once help build the nearby Interstate back in the 1960's.

  2. How I wish, we can drag them and put in our backyard, huh?

    Well, at least someone cares though §:-)
    These are amazing finds, Mr?

    Have a wonderful & blissful week-end.

    xoxo to both!

  4. Wrong turns can be fun! Sometimes. And look what you found! I like the look of those old work horses. Don't be too sad. They look like they are peacefully resting :)

  6. Chris...you make us laugh!! We always laugh when we're walking around and take a turn and say "re-calculating" which is always a constant comment from our GPS!! Great shots from the "other" route!!
    LOVE the place you stayed....we will have to keep that in mind for a future place to visit - not toooo far away!!
    Enjoy your week!

  7. Love the post! I had to laugh at your description of your poor, babbling GPS system, and the old rusty machinery makes for great photos. Nice!

  8. I just saw a program on Discovery about what our planet will be like with no life on it, and only stuff left laying around like this...makes one wonder, and feel sad...
