Do You Believe What We Just Saw?

Do You Believe What We Just Saw?

  Several years ago, my sister and brother-in-law visited us. One morning, my sitter woken up early and decided to walk our dog Buddy. As she's walking Buddy, she cannot believe her eyes. In from of her, in the middle of the street is a chicken. A lady on a bicycle soon peddles close to my sister, and she too see the chicken. Soon the single chicken is followed by 3 more chickens! 

  It turned out that a distant neighbour from a distant different country was raising chickens in his back yard for eating., and the chickens escaped from the coop. Needless to say, some other neighbour complained to the city, the city sent the security guard, and informed the chicken grower that there was a bylaw with which people could not grow chickens in their back yard.

Today's post is about pull carts, but my sister's short story fits in well with these carts. I have seen photos of ostrich carts, donkey, and horse carts, and even a photo of a Bernese (German large dog) mountain dog cart.

I'm not so sure about the chicken,rabbit and rooster carts though!

There's a term in writing called "poetic license". The term simply means a deviation from the normal or conventional manner of writing in order to create the story. With toy carts, there appears to have been lots of "creative license" in order to manufacture carts. 

I doubt if a lion would enjoy pulling a cart!

I like the use of "creative license" especially in the area of "exaggeration".
IN the 2 photos below we see a very small donkey and a super-sized duck!

Of course, best of all is Santa delivering his toys with his reindeer. I have seen reindeer being used to pull sleds. And in keeping with the "spirit" of Christmas, I'm sure that all children would have been happy to receive any toy cart and it's puller!

Thanks for dropping by,
and as always,
have a great part of the day or night,
wherever you may be.
