Ok, it gets slightly more weird.

When I came home tonight, a second ball had joined the one from this morning. This ball doesn’t belong to us either, but it has been seen outside the house before.

Clearly, the wind has been rearranging things. But it’s odd to me that we should have 2 balls, neither of which belong to us, blow into the front yard.

For the sake of the picture, I have moved them closer together. But they were withing a few feet of each other when I first spotted the pink one hiding there in the dark.

Wonder if you'll come home tomorrow to see a small black and pink striped ball in your yard.

Y'know James, the flickr tags you entered for this image were:


I shudder to think what people might be searching for when they come to your page. ;-)

Our neighbors across the street are a) slobs and b) live on a hill. Consequently, many of the tennis balls their dogs chew on and varying other balls the grandkids play with roll onto our property.

We used to toss them back, but they seldome retrieved them, thus, making the street look like Trashville, OR the balls would end up in our yard again, so we now throw them away.

Put up a sign "Balls, resting" and call it modern art. Get a grant from the government as a starving artist, quit your day job, and wrap city hall with orange fabric! When people complain, say nobody understands the artists temperment, start drinking, go into rehab, and sell your story to Hollywood for a zillion dollars.

Dont forget the little people when you get rich.

Glad I could help.

I shall be eagerly awaiting the ball pilgrimage... surely, this is the beginning of a mass migration of balls.
