Rubbish Tuesday #15

Another Monday morning. Mr. Coffee is dripping slower than normal. Gramps might need to be replaced with a newer model. He's been a good 'ol boy, but it may be time to lay him to rest in the rubbish bin. I better hurry and get this post finished so I can run down to the local convenience store for a cup of Joe.
Everything is looking spring green again after our nearly three days of rain. I've taken many pictures of this old barn, but it was looking especially nice with the flowers in bloom.
This truck has been parked along the road to Bro O's for several years now. The property owner keeps the area mowed, but time is taking its toll on this old abandoned fella.
This old Ford tractor is gathering its share of rust. It is sitting in a lot near a mechanics garage, just off the town square. Not sure if it is there because it is for sale or perhaps merely for decoration.
Another old barn I've posted before. You can tell from the haze how humid it was. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the fun.

My idea was to have a place to post 'old things'.  Anything old and/or deteriorating such as old houses, barns, outbuildings, old cars, rusty things, antiques, interesting junk, or it can be something in pristine condition, but just old. 


1. Link to a post featuring photos of something old.
2. Link back to Rubbish by Roan in your post.
3. As time allows, visit other participants and comment on their posts.

Love that old truck. Hope you got your cup of Joe as I would have trouble starting any day without a cup or two.

I haven't anything old to share today...so I need to search through my archives. Perhaps I can find something. :)

The barn and the flowers are just gorgeous!!!! They are my favorite today, the tractor seems to have turned into an art piece! Get a Keurig pod coffee maker! We adore ours, you put a pod in and coffee is ready in less than a minute. Also makes teas and chai latte, and hot chocolate. There is a huge selection. It has really saved us from having to stop at Starbucks on the way to wherever. Now we just pop a pod in and are out the door.

You did an excellent job on all your old goodies today. I am sure that old truck could tell us some interesting tales if it could talk.

Rose said...

I'm late joining, but am joining anyway. One of my favorite memes and am so glad you host it.

I love that first photo with the sunflowers in front of the old barn.

(We actually had some sunshine this evening!)

These are all great. I love each for different reasons, and each would have caught my eye, as well.
