We've finally come up with our "novelty" item to put down near the bottom of our river bank. Our property neighbors gave us the idea. Several years ago the town grocery store was getting rid of it's pay phone, so they took it and put it down near the bottom of the river bank. River floaters will be floating along, looking at river bank and out of the blue here is this random telephone booth! LOL. We've been trying to come up with a similar idea, to compliment their phone booth. We thought of an old soda machine or gas pump.
DH is always looking through what's for sale in the area. He recently saw some old historic city parking meters for sale. We decided that would be a great item to use, so DH is on his way into the city right now to buy one. If I was floating down the river and suddenly came across a parking meter and then a phone booth stuck in the middle of nowhere, I'd totally be cracking up. Something a bit fun and whimsical.
Plus, I got DH out of the house for 2-3 hours :)
