Simpsons?

The Simpsons house, being a typical one-family house, doesn’t quite fit into a downtown area – in its Lego incarnation as well as in real life. And the strange heads that Lego chose to give the Simpsons figures won’t go well with the well-known regular minifigures. So what, Lego buildings can be easily modified – and the heads can serve as masks for the minifigure population. Like in my latest Lego houae:

Delayed Tradition

A little late due to my little holiday, here are my photos for the Pabuca topic “Tradition”, and they are all about Pfaffenhofen’s Volksfest…

Tradition is that during Volksfest times, public and a few (more or less) private buildings are decorated. Like this one, the former mayor’s print shop. Some of the flags apparently have seen quite some tradition…

Tradition is also this greeting (used like “good day” in southern Germany and Austria, roughly translates to “God bless you”) – not just on the Volksfest. The effects of including imaginary sky friends into greetings are most likely just as small as the actions of these sky friends themselves.

Some rides like bumper cars also have lots of tradition – just like roof decorations that aren’t necessary for functionality.
