Downtown post of unknown origin


I don't remember seeing this "post" (or whatever) before in downtown Ocala. We looked it over very carefully and have no clue as to what it is for. I suppose it could be a hitching post but you don't see a lot of horses downtown even if Ocala is the "Horse Capitol of the World"!

Huh.

Hi Halcyon. That's the same thing I said!

By the way, we were just watching the Viking tournament on the Golf Channel - did you get out to see any of it?

Olivier said...

peut être une oeuvre 'pop art' juste pour que les gens se demandent se que cela représente :))

No doubt inconspicuously installed by aliens from outer space.

Hmmmmm! You mean you never saw it there before and it just appeared? Odd indeed. I'm going along with Halcyon---she makes sense. MB

Hitching a bicycle..... possibly? It is only Monday and I already feel like the woman in the chair from the other day!

Maybe its one of those things for smokers to put their butts.

Looks a lot like our public ashtrays at home. Or, a good thing to tie your boat to.

Hmph. Got me stumped.

Is there something in the air...? A lot of ODD posts today... :-D

Joy said...

Scratching post? :D

I didn't make it to the Viking Classic. My hubs is out of town and couldn't find anyone to go with me. :(

Ah well... there weren't any players I was so keen on following anyway.

Trillian said...

Mmmm....installation of modern art?

Paula said...

There's another one across the street. Maybe they grow up to be lightposts?

EG Wow said...

Probably a street ornament. Or not. :)

JM said...

Is the mystery solved with any of these tips? :-)

Daryl said...

Verrrrry interesting .... looks like it might be (a) a sawed off street sign (b)a street lamp for little people (c) a mistakenly painted black fire alarm box or (d) none of the above tho I think that little 'door' at the bottom is hiding electrical connections ...

I think it was original red, and it could be a sign to say "no stop here please", something like that...( because I've already seen a kind of this stuff in some movies...maybe (?)...).
I like so much the white car, and there is a sweet light reflection there!Beautiful!

It's a parking meter in disguise.
