Weekly Photo Challenge: (Extra)ordinary


When we visited Gettysburg last month, I drew the drapes in our motel and off in the distance saw this shed and ladder. I grabbed my phone and traipsed through the field to get close enough to get this photo.

It’s definitely too big to be stored in the shed, who would want to move it off the ground every time they mowed, so up on the roof it went.

Based upon the green mold and the broken trim, someone used their imagination to not cause themselves any additional work. It still makes me laugh. 🙂

Be sure to check out all the other (Extra)ordinary posts this week.

    LOL Yes, that’s funny! I just wonder what they need that big of a ladder for if they are “ambition challenged!”

    When I worked at the hardware store, customers all the time bought things without thinkin how those things wouldn’t fit in their cars, lol! Kinda similar here, I think.

  8. I’m impressed by the fact that it’s balanced just so and not sliding down. I wonder where it goes in the winter?

  13. What a great photo for a Saturday morning, Jane, helping me keep my day going well with a good laugh. I hit the farmer’s market this morning, but not for long, as it was freezing, literally at one point (31 when I woke.) I do love Saturday’s and hope you’re enjoying yours.

        It was hard at first until we got real busy with the sunroom. We had our smart phones but had to watch not to go over our data plans. We did go to the local coffee shop once a week to check our emails etc. I will be the first to say that I felt like I was out of the loop. If we weren’t as busy as we were… I would have gone stir crazy!! By the way, next summer we plan to be connected!

  18. We have a neighbor with a small shed and a big ladder. They “gave” us the big ladder to use in our big garage, and asked to borrow it as needed. Basically, I think we are storing it for free, because my hubby is in no shape to be climbing the big ladder. If anybody ascends to our 2nd story windows, it is me…and I think I would go rent a lift machine and tackle all the “high projects” on one day! So, we store their ladder……..

    This was a fun post, Judy. We need more incongruous situations where we have to stop and ponder, “What the heck? . . .” 🙂
