My scouting mission to Durand Wisconsin located my main objective - the brewery cave - quickly. So I had some time to wander around a bit. You see some interesting things in small towns.
Small town newspapers often have interesting names. The Courier - Wedge is odder than most. Around the corner was the municipal park with the classic bit of civic architecture, a band shell.
I was a bit surprised to find a Nativity Scene parked up there. In a lot of locations various spoil-sports have filed lawsuits relating to separation of Church and State.
The cradle is empty, maybe that is their legal loophole. Kind of an odd assembly of characters here:
Shop worn Wise Man. I can never remember which one was supposedly Ethiopian. Gaspar maybe.
Two odd humanoid figures. One with wings. One without.
It is a nice little park. I liked the trash can with a musical theme.
A couple of blocks away I walked past a shed that had a whole bunch of these.
This has to be a high school art project. "Groovy" and "I (heart) the 70s"! The bottom barrel is more enigmatic. "Video killed the Radio". Last I checked radio stations were doing ok and video rental stores were imploding.
