Kenny Be's Yard Arteology: A leisurely lockdown in University Hills

The study of neighbors through their lawn ornaments... Figure 47. University Hills. Plaster pooch and hidden Hondabago tethered to a tree.

The German Shepard statue chained to a tree would suggest that the display pictured above is the work of a yard artist with a keen sense of humor. The front-yard glider would further indicate the accessible demeanor of a friendly neighbor. A closer inspection provides a few more detailed clues about the home's inhabitants. The dog chain embedded into the tree bark hints that this jolly joker has lived here for several years. That a slip-covered motorcycle is also chained to the same tree intimates that the resident comedians may also come across as a little bit "clingy."
