Today's picture/footbridge

This is the footbridge of my childhood. I crossed it to head downtown or overstreet. When I had a companion who hadn't been on it before, I'd stand in the middle and shake it back and forth. Those mesh sides weren't there when I was a kid, but no one ever jumped or fell off, to my knowledge.


  1. Obviously you don't suffer from vertigo! I would have to crawl across it and if you shook it, I would probably punch you when we got to the other side. So to speak. Ha!

  2. Making me feel a little giddy just looking at it... I'm with Kay: without meshing, I would have had to crawl too...

  3. Ew, kewl! Can you bounce up and down too?

    When we were kids, my brother and I took great pleasure in bouncing across a wooden swing bridge at Fall Creek Falls park everytime we visited! :D

  4. Your new header is beautiful!

    I just found your comment from June 9 on my blog - I don't know how I could miss it. Yes, I've read Diary of a Nobody, but it is so long ago that I need to dig it out again. I can see why you thought of it when talking of Jerome K. Jerome. As for Three Men in a Boat, you can find it, and many more of Jerome's books at Gutenberg. The disadvantage with Gutenberg is that you need a computer or some other device to read the books. It's not the same as a real book!

  5. Lovely, absolutely gorgeous
    flower. AND what a footbridge!
    I had sidewalks on Long Island
    to school!


  6. Wow. You are brave! I'd still feel all weird going over it with the sides up. I have a terrible fear of heights!


I am really going to try and respond to your comments as soon as they come in! I'm so grateful for your notes.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
