A Pair Of Tall Dudes

This was back in May, in Hampton. I think a Memorial Day Parade had just ended. It seems at every festival we go to lately, you are bound to see a guy on stilts! What's up with that?! Is this a new trend sweeping the nation?

It's cold and rainy here today. Just a yucky day.

  1. A subliminal attempt, maybe, to promote tall men's wear? :-)

  2. I love slits...for years we've been enjoying seeing a variety of people in costumes lunking around on them during the Avignon Summer Festival-their balance fascinates me, we've not seen them anywhere else, not yet anyway.

  3. I can't ever actually remember seeing anyone in stilts, except in photos.

  4. We used to make our own stilts and walk the neighborhood. More innocent times.

  5. I need some stilts; you know, it would help me to get to those upper cabinets I never can get into!!!
    Hot and sunny here----ooops sorry about that.

  12. Those are some tall dudes all right! I have seen a few around here lately during parades.
    We have temps about 10 degrees. The wind whipping the snow around makes it feel like -9. Hope this makes your day feel a little better.

  15. That takes balance! I think the last time I saw someone on stilts was during our Winterlude.
