We did our quasi time capsule

Posted on Updated on


I’m stealing an idea from Miss Anna once again.  The previous chalk artwork was washed away by the rain and by the lawn irrigation system.  I shut off the irrigation system yesterday and we had no rain last night.  The gummys, their Dad and I created some artwork for posterity.  So this will all be covered up and it will be years before it’s exposed once again.  This is our quasi time capsule that we’re leaving behind.

I’ll be dead and gone by the time the shed is replaced.  I wonder if the girls will remember this?

    Excellent idea. I wonder if someone in the future about fifty or hundred years will blog about what they found when they teared down Jims shed 😉 For comments please visit original post/Anna

      the guys that erected the shed were careful not to scuff up the artwork.

        Sadly he passed away in 1988 already.
        He would be 107 this year.

        He had!
        He told us all the funny stories about rural life in 1920s, 1930s Germany. And again about life in the 1950s to 1980s. They did some crazy things back then ^^

    Jim, they will remember. When I was a child going to vacation Bible school, we put together artwork for a time capsule. I still think about it.

        the guys that came to install the shed took good care where they walked so they wouldn’t scuff up the chalk any more than they had to.

      yeh, they’ll probably say to their Dad “Do you remember when we did all of that chalk art on Grandpa’s shed pad? I wonder if the shed is still there?”

      it’s good to see you sweetie. 🙂
