Picture of the Month-August

The picture chosen for the month of August is one that not everyone will know about, so I shall share the story.

As you can see, the picture is of a concrete cowboy. This cowboy was discovered when Tiffany Lemons, Eli Day, Derrick Pedolzsky, and I were on a Danger Run on Halloween. We were lost with our directions and I pulled into a driveway to turn around. In the process of turning around I almost ran into this lovely concrete cowboy sitting on a stump! (It is funnier if you were there.) Anyway, so the cowboy became a running joke. It became so much of a joke that it was stolen from its home on Blackiston Mill Road and left on my front porch. This cowboy was then passed from me to Tiffany then to Eli to be held by each of us for a year. After the three years were up it was kindly returned to its owner. On the same day that Eli returned it to the location on Blackiston Mill Road, I went by and took this picture. Unfortunately the cowboy did not return to its place on the stump because, as you can see in the picture, after the three years of being away it had been replaced by a concrete angel. Nowadays you can drive by the house on Blackiston Mill Road and view the stump that used to house the concrete cowboy.
