PPAC 10 Featured Bloggers

We had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s PPAC #10. I had the privilege to pick out the featured bloggers and say “thank you” to each of you for joining along in our challenge.  These posts really grabbed my attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.

PRESCOTT LOO WITH A VIEW OR TWO

Just blocks from downtown Prescott a left hand turn could land you at Prescott National Forest and Goldwater Lake. A few blocks before that turn is a hidden park and cemetery called Acker Park. Vince turned and our exploration began.

There’s not much to the park – playground equipment and a small outdoor movie theatre. The cemetery behind it has some interesting markers, though it appears that no one maintains it.

However, the Loo with a View, dedicated in 2010, is worth the trip.

I’m sure there is so much symbolism involved in all of the paintings, and since Mr. Acker loved children, the pictures are all things that children love. I didn’t count, but I think there were more animals than any other category of pictures. These paintings reminded me of the style drawn in the 1940s-50s, which would represent the popular art Mr. Acker and the children must have enjoyed.

Front entrance to the restrooms. The sign says keep the doors closed. Also submitted for Thursday Doors by Dan Antion at No Facilities (how appropriate is that for this post?)
Walk around to the other side of the building and find this painting. It is fenced off, so you can’t get too close.
The back side looks pretty from a distance, but getting closer allows you to see under the eves. Unfortunately, this is one time the tree shadow was an unwelcome addition, though lacey.

FOTD #27

This month, since TreeSquares is over, I decided to participate in Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge – (FOTD).  Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it.  I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
