One Word Wednesday..... WHAT?!?!?!

So, I've always known that I live in a small town... the only places we can go to buy anything is Safeway, the Dollar Store and the truck stop. But it's really quiet where we live and we've got incredible views of Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen on a clear day. Most of the time the benefits far out weigh the disadvantages of needing to drive 30 minutes EVERYTIME we need to buy something. Not much happens here - there is the occasional community event, but other than that it's pretty mellow.

And then one day, we saw these workers filling fabric tubes with sand and wrapping them around a metal frame. My first thought?? They are building something to protect the well. They have their olive orchard on the corner of a major road that links two highways and it has been hit before. And then they kept going up and up and more and more round. And then one day, we drove by and saw that they had plastered around it and added the spear.

What?!?! We're still waiting to see if they paint it like an olive (that would be the only thing that makes any sense what so ever) but so far this is it.... a big, huge white egg with a spear through it. No one can say this town is boring!!

ha! That is funny! I hope whatever it turns out to be, you don't have to stare at it from your kitchen or living room window. :-)
