Daily Prompt-Premature

~~~~~

Waayyy back around 1970…My cousin and I were supporting opposite sides

in what is now known as the

Australian Football League’s

Grand Final.

A 10 cent wager was placed.

At half time my team was 10 goals in front and

I prematurely asked my cousin did she want to pay up.

She declined.

And it is now history that Collingwood (my team)

had their worst ever case of the “Colliewobbles”

and lost another Grand Final.

And I have never had a wager on football since.

I think and it has been confirmed, that…

this dress could be called a deb(utante) frock.

This flock of sheep and herd of cattle…

are certainly livestock.

A group of rocks just outside Geelong

known as Dog Rocks.

Many photographers photograph this

rock formation, both day and night.

A foggy drive and still…

this sign caught my eye.


And just in case you did not catch it….

not often we see a run of zeros at

a petrol/service/gas station.

Since then fuel has jumped to over

$1.50 per litre top price.

The low end of the cycle is around $1.30 per litre.

Hope you enjoyed.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Barns-Dilapidated-Buildings

~~~

A variety of building shots 

from the Geelong region.


Definitely an abandoned early twentieth century,

building if not earlier.

This probably does not it the dilapidated building

in the true sense of the word…

however, we were just glad it was not our place.

New owners, new broom,

no more old house.

 

I’m not certain what this building was…church, hall or house.

However, the pitch of the roof makes me think

it could be very old by our standards.

Bricks were first made in Australia five months

after convicts arrived and the first commercial bricks

were made at Norwood in South Australia in 1840

 Back to roof pitch…

I have been told that many ‘snow countries‘ have

roofs similar to this to assist in snow run off.

Is this true?

 

Finally, the closest I have to what maybe a barn of sorts.
