Ten Rod Road in Wickford RI lives a man with a penchant for pigs
devices. I had stumbled upon this odd abode while
investigating RI vampires. As I cruised down the road
making way to my objective I was admiring some of the beautiful
old New England homes. Potbelly Manor made its presence
known. My eyes were irresistibly drawn to this sea worthy
spectacle like cheap metal to a magnet. I pulled over
across the street and quickly took a few photos. There
were a variety of items decorating the boarder of the yard.
Buoys of all shapes, colors and sizes, life preserver, oars, a
lighthouse, lobster traps and much more. There was even a
small boat with 'Titanic Life Boat' written on each side.
Shark fins surrounded it and a skeleton was behind it.
Just as I was about to leave, I spotted The Duke of Potbelly
Manor exited his house. Unfortunately I already had a
date with a vampire and didn't have the time to ask him about
his unusual lawn ornaments. I snapped a picture of him and
was on my way. As I drove away I tried to understand what
would motivate a man to do this. I really could put a
finger on it but one thing I did know is that if we ever
experienced a cataclysmic flood, Noah and his crew wouldn't be
only survivors this time. This was defiantly a story to be
chalked up for
