I live in an older development that is surrounded by a narrow band of thick foliage and mature trees. Maybe four years ago, I notice that nailed to one of the trees, at about eye level was a Shrek doll.
This doll stayed in place though at least two Buffalo winters, then one day, it was gone as mysteriously as it came. In its place was a stuffed Shrek Donkey.
Again it steadfastly kept its post though blustery winters, rainy springs and summer heat.
Several days ago, the donkey disappeared only to be replaced by a poster of Eminem. The poster will surely not be as robust as the stuffed creatures were, but I can’t wait to see what’s next.
