Bring us your tires

I'm from southern USA... yep the deep south where a favorite lawn decoration, for years, was the white tire! Homes, businesses, parks and jiffy johns, all displayed their tires with pride. 

Why even the 'Statue of Liberty' proclaimed the song of the south: Bring us your tires, your poor, your hungry... course now that you-all have arrived, we don't know what to do with ya!

Just in time... yes sir, we made a change! No longer is the white tire the coveted item to own. The south has one of the finest mixes of peoples you'd ever want to meet. And you know... they all brought their own yard art. Yep, yard art!! Tires.


  1. Interesting. I am currently using a mouse-mat made from recycled old tyres but I always thought that the best use of old tyres was to burn them thus releasing an acrid and putrid plume of thick black evil-smelling and oozing liquid putrescence* into the sweet garden air for miles in all directions.

  2. bazza, glad you found this interesting! Wasn't that Poe a mess?!! Yes, and 'nevermore' any white tires for me... if only I could get them in colors for my van! :)

  3. Dear Dixie,
    Bring me your tires, your poor, your huddled masses indeed!
    Very entertaining post, Dixie. And I think some of that "yard art" looks really rather nice.
    Bye y'all.
    Very Best Wishes,

  4. Hi David!
    I supposed I misquoted... I guess that they were 'huddled' because they were hungry!(Oops)
    Shh, but the hard part is that I got rid of some oldies without realizing their potential. Good thing we don't do people that way!
    Good to hear from you!
