What's Wrong With This Picture?

I actually took the time this morning to upload some old photos from my Paco.  It’s been months since I’ve taken the time to do this.  Which means rediscovering digital images.  Like this one:

Headliners

This was taken back in March.  The story behind it is that PodMate‘s car got into a fight with a unruly storm grate and the grate won.  So while her car was in the shop getting fixed up, I had carpool buddy for a few days.  (Let me just say I love carpool buddies – the idea of not looking like a wacko because I have an actual person to talk to is priceless.)  So we made the adventure to work, heading down Lexington Road where she pointed out the grate in question.  And then we spot a treasure: her hubcap.

We pull a u-ey to go retrieve it [because those molded pieces of plastic aren’t exactly cheap to replace].  I pull into the parking lot of Headliners and PodMate jumps out of the car to get the hubcap and take photos of the storm hole (the grate really wasn’t on it which is why the car was in the shop).  So I’m minding my own business, looking around at the surroundings.  And then I see it.  And it just doesn’t fit.  Do you see it?

We’ll put the zoom in play:

Headliners

Is that a little airplane?  I can’t find any kind of information on it.  I’m not very savvy with the Google.  But there is some kind of little airplane implanted in the hillside behind the distillery.  As most times I visit Headliners is in the dark, I’ve never noticed it.  But now that I know it exists, I want to know why and how.  Even if it’s something as lame as “a toy airplane thrown on the hill to make suckers like you think something profound happened.”

Or we can just start making our own assumptions.  That might be even more fun.

rachel - I can’t believe you have never noticed it – it has been there forever. I am not sure where it came from – brian might though.

Susan the Pod-Mate - I would love to know what’s up with that. Maybe I’ll work some Google magic and see what I can find.

katie o. - that’s brilliant! maybe someone really liked how the plane was stuck in the tree on “lost” and decided to do it too.

Wendi - WTF??? That’s a whole world of crazy.

shutterboo - Yeah, but it doesn’t explain it. Or did I completely miss the bus on that?
