A weird thing From Rochester.

I was reading Jackie's Journal one day, and she post weird things about New Jersey. I liked the one with the Grinch Jumping over the bridge that was hilarious. The most recent entry was about a van with monsters on it called The Mad Monster Mobile.

This inspired me to look down the street from my house and post and entry about something weird about Rochester. Once we did have a car that was shaped like a shoe, but they are gone now, and I never got a picture (before I had a digital camera). There is still one thing that is unusual however. I have to start at the beginning to help you understand why this happened. A few years upon moving into our home, there was a home down the street at the corner of our street and Culver rd. Our Neighbors were upset because the owners of the house didn't keep up with the paint job on there house, and they were worried that the property value of there homes would go down. I don't know if there is a law that says that you have to paint your house when the paint is going bad, but I know there isn't a law that prevents you from painting your house whatever color you want it to be. Out of defiance of the neighbors (I have to say that this is so cool) the owners of the house painted the house, but in there color of choice......

Orange and Yellow, and now some of the neighbors have named it the "Pumpkin House". I'm surprised that we weren't targeted for our backyard. I could only imagine.

This happened in Peoria, too! One guy painted his house purple and green. I dubbed it the Barney house. Hehehe, awesome.

Ummm those are not the colors I would have picked. Eeesh, that isn't a pretty combination of colors. To each their own I guess.
