Rob's Alley.......

Happy Friday to everyone from Rob's Alley, NC.  That's right, we said Rob's Alley.  (It's actually the lower driveway on our property, but just play along anyways.)

This all started several weeks ago when it was suggested on the Facebook forum by Peggy that all the  r-Pod F.R.O.G rally attendees should build PVC a lamp post in keeping with the Pod village theme.  Somehow the whole lamp post thing just snowballed from there.

Of course, Rob built a lamp post.  We took it camping to New River State Park, and well it just wasn't exactly what he wanted.  So, Rob built another lamp post.  It went camping with us this past trip at Huntington Beach State Park.  It is just right.  If you remember, Rob also helped Cousin Sharon build a lamp post too.  But that's all light under the lamp post so to speak.

So here we were with an extra lamp post sitting in the corner of Rob's shop.  It wasn't long until Rob decided to turn the lamp post into a street sign, and he knew the perfect place.  The lower driveway on our property was begging for something to set it off.

Here's a picture of our the lower driveway.  You can see Pod in it's pod-port, Rob's shop, the tool shed, and his mom's old studio.

Look closely, you can see the old lamp post with two banners on it

dressing up the back driveway.  Now look at the next picture, and you can just see the street sign Rob had made to turn the lamp post into a street sign.

Below is a close-up of the street sign, pretty neat huh?

And as quick as that, our back driveway is now known far and wide as Rob's Alley.  The picture on the street sign is courtesy of Cousin Sharon and her artistic talents.  

Thanks for checking by today.  We'll be at home all this next week getting things ready for our big trip to Indiana.  

Until next time, stay safe out there.....-R,T,&J.
