Two-for-Tuesday: Trashed Transportation & Preserved Chairs (A TIME FOR EVERYTHING)

Hello readers –

It is #twosday and today I have TWO Photos of items at the end of their life cycle: 

There is a time to recycle or crush and throw away:


There is also A TIME TO KEEP.

A time to extend the life —

 preserve items – cherish them. 

Like these chairs for Pull Up A Seat Challenge:

This all reminds me of the Ecclesiastes verse about how there is “a time” for everything.


For everything there is a season,

and a time for every purpose under heaven:

a time to be born, a time to die;

a time to plant, a time to pluck what is planted;

 a time to kill, a time to heal;

a time to break down, a time to build up; 

a time to weep, a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, a time to dance;

a time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones;

a time to embrace, a time to refrain from embracing;

 a time to seek, a time to lose;

a time to keep, a time to release;

a time to rend, a time to sew;

a time to keep silent, a time to speak;

a time to love, a time to hate;

a time for war, and a time for peace.

And many of you know the 1965 song, Turn! Turn! Turn! by The Byrds: 


Let’s wrap up this post with TWO FUN SIGNS for FriFollies (here)

  1. There are lots of things to like in this post … the funny sign at the end, the Byrds’ lyrics and song (always loved the Byrds music and this was a favorite), the chairs you’d sit or lounge in and never get back out of them again and the recycle center for has beens. You’ve captured them all Yvette!

    1. Thanks linda – and that recycle place for the “has beens” is quite the eye sore when you peek over the meta fence – a few years ago when they were putting up the new fence- we finally realIzed what was behind it –
      Wow – and I guess people can also go and buy parts – nkt everything is crushed

      1. You know I think we have a place like that too Yvette – it is in a more rural area and I recall passing by there years ago and the pile of crushed vehicles, each one almost flat like a pancake, was over the top of the high fence. It was so long ago, that it was just cars as I recall. No SUVs back then and probably pick-up trucks were in a separate area. Folks did not buy trucks in those days unless they were in construction or a hauling-type business … now the scrappers take their finds to a metal place and sell it by the pound (maybe the ton). In fact, my neighbor across the street is a “scrapper” full time and that is how he makes his living. He comes home in his pick-up truck filled with metal and he takes it apart in his garage, then to a metal buying business. His wife also works, not doing this, but evidently it provides a lucrative income for him/them.


  2. Are we hoping to discourage soccer players? Loved the two for Tuesday photos. Just finished a study of Ecclesiastes. A favorite passage. God’s timing is always perfect.

    1. Hi Anita – I think the sign meant the archery range was available for soccer when “not in use”
      So no arrows to dodge
      And yes – His perfect timing although sometimes I wonder about it – always trust completely and see
      How “all things work for good” which is awesome –
      But sometimes things take lonngggggggg

  3. I think I would end up on the floor if I tried using those chairs. I might be a little too bottom-heavy.

    I like the sign, a lot. I used to be into archery when I was in my teens. A soccer ball would have made a fun target.


    1. Hi dan – that is funny that the soccer ball would
      Be a good target – and I can picture an astute bowman getting a moving football (I mean soccer ball)
      Also – you were into archery before it became trendy because of the popular movies that made archery popular about 12 years ago
      – oh and the chairs – leftovers from earlier this year and trying to use up pics and toss ones i don’t use
      And what attracted me to the chairs was the culture mix and I could imagine the French collectors in the 1920s feeling all elated to show these unique artsy pieces off (like thought of downtown abbey scenes)

    1. Hi di
      I think the range is available when the range is not open – like maybe they have a big open space for folks –
      And appreciate the visit

      1. I figured that out after I write my comment, but it’s just so weird seeing that sign. 😄

        Hope you have a great weekend!
