Someone wanted a new pair n ditched the old-
This isin't the first time shoes have been spotted on the wires over the D-bridge. Teen-agers here just like to do stuff like that.
Along with throwing lawn chairs in the country club pond, n putting a bottle of dish soap in the fountain at the local water park, this is normal fun in this town.

Do kids do strange stuff in your spot?

Kids around here are not very imaginative and find it fun to drive around and smash mailboxes. We wish they threw shoes on high lines.

Not here. That mostly happens in the city.

Around here its mostly removing street signs or turning them around.

Around here they shoot no hunting signs and skateboard where they are not supposed to. Although, I HAVE seen tennis shoes on lines around here.

I've seen a few shoes on wires soap bubbles in fountains, but on St. Paddy's Day someone put some green dye in an area pond...looked more ghoulish than festive in the end! :)

Note: I almost tied this post into the Boston Marathon, n needing new shoes after that, but am glad I didn't. Alot of folks won't be needing new shoes anymore. The bombing news from that is so horrible-

Gran Annie, sounds like you need a decoy mailbox, while the real one is left alone... Nope, not very imaginative!

G, I often wonder if it was a bully throwing some pitiful kid's stuff up there. I've had a few street sign decorations before. My Fave was "Restricted Area". There are alot of graffiti-ed on signs here too.

Tabor, They should save a step on the No Hunting signs n just put a bulls-eye on them... Skateboards are illegal here on the cobble stones too- Most summer visitors are surprised at the parking lot restrictions. Razor skooters are also illegal in town. See my answer to G also-

Talon, Ah ha- the shoes on the wire thing is very popular! My dish soap disappeared on a few occasions...
That's alot of food coloring! I wonder if the gold Fish turned green too! Of course, the frogs weren't bothered at all!

I'm always seeing that shoes on power lines thing here in Atlanta.

I thought of you yesterday after I heard the news. I wish I could do something to help.

The children here are absolutely 100% angels ALL the time, no shennanigans of any type.

I wonder how many shoes are in the water under the wires, all those failed attempts? :)

Lynn, So they have good aim in Atlanta too! N of course, good hearts wanting to help the bombing victims. It's really too bad for all the charity groups running to raise funds n awareness for their causes, such as the Jimmy Fund n Dana-Farber Cancer Institute we used to cheer for there each year.

JanF, I'm sure Kelly won't develop any strange habits from her High-School pals either. Hmm, never thought of misses- Folks here are pretty co-ordinated I guess! Bet shoes make great crab homes!
I'm alot more concerned with the lost fishing hooks. Alot of fishing off that bridge too.

Nothing too radical around here, but occasionally youngsters drive their cars along our country lane and drive over the grass leaving muddy track marks where the lawn should be, which really bugs me. And throwing rubbish on the pavements and roads.

LLcoolJ, I understand the muddy-rut lawn issue, The downstairs kids made me so much repair work n pick-up out there, it took years to undo, just to mow smoothly again. I wish you a good lawn summer!
