Life in the gutter

.
A gutter on the go in a back alley of Jerusalem -- for ABC Wednesday G-day.
.
Seeing it made me start singing the kid song:
.
"The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Up came the sun and dried up all the rain,
and the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again. "

The good old tinsmith does wonders with his mallet.
.
(Yes, it's a photo from winter. We are still in the 30s C every day this August. I can hardly wait for winter!)

Insy winsy is a very famous spider . It travels all round the world.

Have you heard of Anasi?

I'm going to post some archive shots either, it is always nice to give some pictures another occasion...

Pass along some of the heat, autumn is already going strong here.
I always admire people who are really skilled at what they do and i bet the tinsmith can do more with the mallet than many other people with a whole toolbelt.

I don't need new gutters, but I do need new downspouts. Hopefully, it will cool off soon for you.
