We passed the Google street view car driving around the south side. Yow. I didn't think we'd be big enough to rate a street view. So, if you are planning on doing something you don't want seen by millions around the world, postpone it a day or two.

Did you whack down the marijuana plants hidden in with your tomatoes?

I didn't put in a garden this year so I only have a few 'tomatoes' in pots.

Does Shipley know about this?

Thankfully Google blurs out all the crap in the photos it takes, and they won't be on street view for a year.

They don't blur out all the crap.

Google street view? Sure it wasn't this bad boy? My nephew got a picture of it in Broadus the other night.

Don't know when the images went live, but was surprised to look up Shipley's address and discovered that the Street View was available. Is that Rob in the photo?

I'm trying to remember who used to own that house in the 80s...

The car driving must be seasonal. I don't think they take photos in the winter, nor in rain...

Browsed over to the lot where I grew up. Always hard to have memories at odds with the current state of things. Don Birkholz, I see that they left one of the evergreen trees that you planted. I never expected the cottonwood next to it to have survived this long, long after the house is gone.

Hard to see the older houses and buildings gone, to be replaced by bland, cheap, modern versions. Through years of delivering newspapers, of mowing lawns, shoveling walks and tilling gardens for almost a decade (as well as many, many other involvements), there were very few blocks where I didn't work for someone or know someone. Now, I can barely tell where I'm at by looking around.

Now you can't even hike around Signal Butte without getting nasty notes left on your vehicle.

Sadly when I said that Google blurs the offending images from Street View, they didn't get the memo of robby boys property. Look at this tornado. https://www.google.com/ma...nQ9uoQ!2e0

They got a nice shot of the garage doors next to me and a glimpse of my house through the bushes. I wish they would come back next year when the house is painted. It will look much better.

I believe that he is stacking and balancing rocks on the curb in that picture (you can see a come along and rope or chain to the right), and not actually doing yard work!

Google has a goal of getting EVERYPLACE on street view eventually. I was surprised to find all of Forsyth on there recently -- as recently as a couple months ago they only had Main and Front Streets. But now the whole town is there.

One function I wish they would implement is "drive down the street." It's kind of irritating to have to click and wait, click and wait, click and wait if you want to explore a street. I suppose eventually they'll just have actual video footage taken by the cars.
