It's Monday

 

Start your engines!

This is the first time I have ever seen a whirligig on a weathervane.  How brilliant!

That is so great! Well spotted Ginnie! I like the background treatment you've used
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Elizabeth. Just when I think I've seen it all, something new pops up!

Wonderful
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian!
that Rolls is much older than 1987 Ginnie... and i love the way that you framed another wonderful weather vane....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: My guess is that 1987 means a lot to whomever lives there, Peter...with probably nothing at all to do with that fabulous Rolls. Don't you wonder! Thanks.

"O" stands for "Other place"?
Ginnie Hart: HA! It actually stands for "east," Ray. Oost in Dutch = East. smile

Yes, an extraordinary, buitengewone weathervane! Arkel is Astrid's former home?
Ginnie Hart: Good memory, Philine. Yes, Arkel is where Astrid used to live. smile

I like the automobile to Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if there are any cars left these days that need to be cranked in front to get them started??? smile

I love these detailed personalized weather-vanes. This is beautiful. These cars are rare... car with chauffeur... wink who does not want that...
Ginnie Hart: Just when I think there's nothing new to see anymore, another one like this pops up! It keeps amazing me!
That looks a bit of an old car for 1987 Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I'd say so, Chad. There must be another reason for the date, then??? smile
I love your weathervanes Ginnie. This one is very amusing
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. I love highlighting the best ones I see, like this one. I had never seen a whirligig on one before, so this is unique!
Brilliant indeed Ginnie. I love it!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. It's fun, isn't it.

Une belle trouvaille
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, JP. One of a kind.
So how does it move, G?
Is the car going to hit the golfer's bum? wink
Ginnie Hart: I think that's the chauffeur, LC??? He's trying to start the engine, right? But he has to wait for the wind to hit the whirligig. grin

Well, you won't find anything as fine over here, Ginnie, though I have one or two in store for you
Ginnie Hart: Based on what I have seen over there, Lisl, we could have quite a contest between our two countries. In fact, I'm very eager to see more there...especially if you have some in store for me. YIPPEE.
Well I suppose it will be sure to catch any wind
Ginnie Hart: Two for the price of one, Bill!!! smile
Makes you wonder why all weathervanes don't have them.
Ginnie Hart: Well, some have to be extra special and more complicated than others, I guess, Mary?!

What a great weathervane, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I did a second take on this one, Pauline. It really surprised me! smile Thanks.

Using the wind to turn the engine over, for a start! Quite novel.
Ginnie Hart: I thought it was brilliant, Louis!
Looks like this one has a personal meaning Ginnie. Nice find for your collection
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to know the back-story for this one, Janet, for sure. Thanks.
magnifique girouette!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, JP. It's one of the most complicated I've ever seen.

I bet on a very windy day, the starting handle is really flying around smile Well seen.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Alan. It'd be extra fun if there was a sound for the engine starting! smile
Oh this is beyond interesting! Wouldn't you love to know the story about it all? Very well spotted!!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Robin. I have a feeling it's one of a kind!

It's Monday ... blah! Am I right? smile

And this is such a cool spot you found, I like the rule of thirds you have used here!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Emily, it's Monday...well, actually, it's Wednesday as I write this reply. Time sure does fly. Thanks for your comment, as always.
Love so much your picture!
Have a great evening!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Natallia. I really like unique vanes like this. smile
Another advance in weather-vanery...
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Larry. Some are definitely more "advanced" than others! smile
Nice to see that it is dated, too!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Tom. I'm sure every detail of this vane means something to the owner!

What a fabulous weather vein smile
Ginnie Hart: One of the best and most-complicated I've ever seen, Cherry! Thanks.
Now that is a great weather vane.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Michael. smile
another worthy addition to your fine collection, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ayush. It still surprises me that I keep finding unique ones like this.
