It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Hydrants with rust on them are rare in the downtown St. Paul area because they were all spruced up before the Republican National Convention which was held here in 08. When I saw this some what rusty older style hydrant I just had to add it to my growing collection of rusty urban hardware.
For anyone that does not have radio, TV, newspapers or internet access you may not know that Sunday is Fathers day. Rusty fire hydrants have absolutely nothing to do with fathers day, but since this is a real estate blog I will mention that a house or maybe a condo makes a great fathers day gift and I will be available to write offers this weekend.
