Zevulun Hamer Street

Jewish date:  8 Tammuz 5772 (Parashath Ḥuqqath).

Today’s events:  Paul Bunyan Day, Tau Day.


Continuing the series on Giv‘ath Shemu’el, today’s street of interest is Zevulun Hamer Street, which continues ’Uri Ṣevi Grinbergh Street where it meets with Menaḥem Beghin Avenue and ends at Derekh hamMelekh.  As usual, descriptions of pictures may be inaccurate as part of my devious plot to promote Giv‘ath Shemu’el tourism, so please do not complain if you come visit and discover that they do not really hand out gold bricks to all visitors.

Yet another cloudy day.  I need to learn not to photograph on such days, at least because blue skies look better.


The Smurfs who live in this castle hand out gold bricks to all visitors.  Sadly, I have lived in Giv‘ath Shemu’el too long to qualify.

A Smurf gazebo.

“ARGH!  A photographer!  Squirm away!”

No joke:  They really put exercise equipment in public parks in Israel.

◳◳◳ and Salle took the building here and, just for a change, they are trying to get the owners to ransom it for gold bricks.  Salle has gone on TV and threatened to “MAKE IT GO BOOM!” if they do not pay.

One of our decorated traffic circles, this one with an olive tree, paving, and flowers along the edge.

“Um, all that paving is due to us doing our circular marching exercises on that traffic circle.  We killed the grass, and they decided that they might as well pave it with stones, which we can’t kill.  Sorry about that.”

I think this painted electrical box is supposed to be clouds over the ocean.

More tree cyborgization.

“◳◳◳ and Salle are threatening to cyborgize all the trees and use them as an evil cyborg army.  I’m not buying it.  It wouldn’t be worth the effort to make trees mobile, and the speed at which plants react would make them lousy soldiers.  Then again, ◳◳◳ and Salle aren’t known to be practical.”

Pink furry flowers.  Don’t know what species this is.

The ninja hiding in this picture claims the flowers were genetically engineered by ◳◳◳ and Salle just to confuse people.

The ninja hiding in this picture claims that too many ridiculous stories are told about ◳◳◳ and Salle and that the diabolical duo are responsible for starting such rumors in order to enhance their own reputation.

Enjoy, share the weirdness, and beware of ◳◳◳ and Salle.
