It started as a driving game. Enjoying the scenery as drive down rural country roads you keep your eyes peeled for yards offering eclectic yard art. You might see a goose wearing clothes, a birdbath, or even a gnome. As you see them you shout out what you see and tally your points. The winner is the one with the most points when you get to where your going, or you can set a point limit. Either way - a lot of fun!
Along Life's Highway has taken it a (hilarious) step further! Take pictures of the yard art you find along life's highway and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org . The point system is always displayed in the right column of the blog and you can win great awards like a Golden Manatee.
It's great fun and something you can get all of your friends involved with. I personally just found some Gnomes in a yard near here and am on my way to take the photos today! So, the game is afoot!
Get your hands dirty!
