I did have a photo of the original.
I am pleased to report that the fence has been rebuilt.
Here is a shot of the one corner. The items on the new fence have for the most part been donated by residents.
Here is a longer view. That orange plastic thing on the right is a utility connection. The cover is gone, and the city ran out, and the plastic is temporary.
A close up of some of the items.
Pails, flip-flops, sand molds, a rake, and other trinkets that seem insignificant make up the inventory.
I love that shark shovel and the frog.
Here is a photo of a piece of the original fence and the new.
A small poem.
Insignificant by John W. Howell © 2108
A fence of trinkets,
Not important to FEMA . . .
Rebuilt from the heart.
I hope you liked this essay on community spirit.
