The Windmill on 87th Street

My First Wife and I use 87th Street a lot. More than just about any street in the entire Heart of America. Sometimes we pass things so often that we don't really see them. Know what I mean? Remember that cool house on the Prairie? It's on 87th Street.

This windmill is only a few blocks on down the street. I wonder how many times we've driven passed it without ever seeing it? Well, if I hadn't been walking, maybe I'd never have taken this picture. I like it.

Well, shoot. I'm surprised how many 87th Street pictures I've taken. So I started a new folder today. I gotta get it organized, but later this year, I'll publish the photos from it. Whatcha think?

And have you been to My Hats Blog lately? You should stop by

I'd be happy to see lots of shots from 87th street. It sounds like an interesting place to visit, especially on a walk.

Nice shot! We have a windmill in town that someone brought over from Holland and rebuilt in their backyard. Now I'm inspired to go photograph it. :)

What a great photo! I should share this one with my friend, Holland!

Wow, it's been a while since I was here. Whilst I've been away from the computer you've been doing a masterful job of blogging. First, sorry about your friend Cleta. She looks almost exactly like a beloved Aunt of mine and seems to have had about the same attitude. Your reunion will be grand.
I too like the neat farm look of the windmill. Not many of them in good shape in these parts. Most of the water here comes from the ground and from a pump about 18 miles from here. Not much nostalgia in a water hydrant or water district.

Well, that's a stellar idea! I think I might have to do County Road 15... hmmmm... I love how you always get me thinking.
