Signs, Signs: The Muffler Man & A Good Fence In Salem

(click on photos to enlarge)
This hipster is the Muffler Man located at 3110 Williamson Road in Roanoke. I must have been drunk this day. I could not get a straight photo to save my life, or one without the side mirror. Anywho, for more info on the Muffler Man CLICK HERE Linking this with Signs, Signs

Yes, there is a fence there...the tippy top of a split rail! We were driving along one day in Salem when I noticed this kid out on his porch playing his guitar. So Nick knowing what was next (turn around, I want to get a picture) turned around and slowly crept passed him while I secretly snapped his picture from the window...by this time he probably had noticed us and was texting for help "help, some old lady is driving by slowly and taking my picture"... Linking this with Tex and her Good Fences meme.

  10. I used to search out Muffler Men in my travels then I found there are so many of them out there I quit and saved my efforts for more interesting oddities in America.

  15. LOL!!! I'm loving your tipsy photos of the hipster! The story about taking the kid's photo cracked me up - I can soooo relate!

  16. Oh you made me laugh with your commentary. The Muffler Man is quite interesting but he should be holding a muffler in those hands. How funny about your taking the photo of the boy playing the guitar. Did you see all those potted plants on the porch too. Interesting scene.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You stalker! lol I like interesting scenes like that too. I like the lattice work under the porch.

    The Muffler Man looks like Paul Bunyon. :-)

  18. I remember when that place used to sell tires and the man held a tire in his hand, that was back 40 years ago or more.

  19. I sure as heck have days like that when everything looks like it's going to slide into the Atlantic Ocean. Oh, well... Love that Muffler Man and the dude on the porch. Guess you got away with it.

  21. Cool Muffler Man! I like the angled shots.

  22. I don't have to be drunk to get slightly off photos, myself.

  23. LOL One has to look out for ladies armed with a camera! I like that cute yellow house, and it's even better with a musician enjoying his guitar.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great one of the big guy and I like your drive-by photo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I thought of Paul Bunyan in Minnesota too when I first saw your Muffler Man picture. He looks a little creepy to me though!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow that muffler guy must be huge to be bigger than the building.

    I like your idea of the guy playing the guitar.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Funny post! :-) I actually really like that guy's house.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is a great drive by! Did you ever see as many plants on one porch as there is on that one!!! That is amazing.

  29. In different attire he'd make a good lumberjack!

  30. The muffler Man brings back memories for me. I used to see them all the time when I was a kid. They usually had something in their hands like a golf club or a tire, a muffler etc. :-)
