Jennifer Nery's Antique Road Show

July 21, 2010

Earlier this year, in late May, when the Wisconsin spring was so spectacular, I went on a true "get lost ride" and ended up in Forest County east northeast of Rhinelander. While driving along Hwy 32, close to CH NN, I spotted something I had never seen before.

As I'm singing along with my iPod, all windows open, sun shining, wind blowing in my face, what do I see but what at first looked like a junk yard. I passed it by, but as what I had seen started to lock in to my brain, I said to myself, "Self, that's no average junk yard. You'd better turn back and take another look." Boy am I glad I did.

I had come upon The Nery Farm of Hiles, Wisconsin, home to, among other things, Jennifer Nery's Antique Road Show.

And meet Jennifer Nery. I parked my car along the road and walked toward the exhibit. Jennifer appeared seemingly out of nowhere and I figure, oops, I was trespassing and was gonna get scolded. Not so. Jennifer welcomed me to her Antique Road Show with abundant enthusiasm and that famous Wisconsin hospitality. I told her what I was up to, and she let me have free time to walk around the exhibit, occasionally pointing out things to me.

I took a bunch of photos and want to show them to you, and then challenge you. Try to spot in each photo how many antique things you see. I will try to cut up each of the first pictures and put them into a zoom mode of various sections of that photo so you can have a shot at picking out as many antiques in there as you can.

Have some fun. I did. Thanks Jennifer. Here we go!

To help get you started, the most visible object here is an antique rod iron bed frame, but Jennifer added one more thing to it, a bed made of flowers! Ha!

AntiqueD2

There is some kind of farming machine there, but once again to sharpen your eyes after you have identified that, what do you see hanging from the wooden post?

AntiqueD3

The action is picking up. Lots of stuff here. Don't forget that car tire and wheel in the lower right!

AntiqueD4

The obvious here will probably be easy for you, but what's that in the upper right on the other side? Let's zoom on that.

Any ideas?

Well, there's a feast of stuff here for you.
