Where Does It All End??? by 

Many items have accumulated at my home over the years. At the side of the house is a cement area that was once where a boat was stored, eventually becoming a half court basketball area for the grandsons. At some point a welding unit from the 1950’s was left…an oxygen tank and an acetylene tank on a rolling metal cart and surrounded by what seems to be miles of chain.

    Oh this is just wonderful love the rusty chains and the tangle love the rusty key to the right wonder if that is any use at all.

    Love the title

  • Hi Karen! I have been trying to figure out what the “key” is for also! This is a small amount of the chains that are on the cart so the title really was what I was thinking when trying to figure out if there was a beginning and an end the the chain. Thanks for your comments:) Sandy

    It looks like they, at least, left the key!!!! A terrific capture!!! Bill

  • Key, yes-if that is what it is. Lock-no, none to be found! I looked again today at the detail of the chains and along the side of the cart they look like snow tire chains, which is entirely possible as we used to ski often in the Sierra’s:) Sandy
