#597. Gunfight Brewing

I found this piece of vintage playground equipment in a quaint Rice Village park. It grabbed my attention because it reminded me of playing cowboys and Indians and of having pretend gun fights when I was a kid. Frankly I'm surprised that this piece of equipment has survived in today's environment of ultra political correctness. Anyway, the scene reminded me of older, if not better, days and put a little smile on my face. By the way, I could have easily removed the white plastic bag from the foreground but I decided to leave it as a representation of urban tumbleweeds! :-)
