Just to remind…

On the *other* side (north terminus) of Cherry Avenue we have this man with his hand in the middle of a sewer top. Is he a guardian of the underworld, perhaps the one directly beneath the gray surface of Cherry Street and its numerous islands?

He must know about the 2 sets of twins from the other side of his 3/4th mile long avenue. He must somehow be in control of the islands. Many Islands.

“What are the names of the fairies off Cherry Avenue, infesting that creek or brook?”

Hucka D.:

The Chill’n’s.

bb:

Cool. Er, ha.

Hucka D.:

Brrr.

bb:

What an odd thing for that woman to do. Reminded me of my sister.

Hucka D.:

Pineapple. Island. Yes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lanai

Lānaʻi (/ləˈnaɪ/; Hawaiian: [laːˈnɐʔi] or [naːˈnɐʔi]) is the sixth-largest of the Hawaiian Islands and the smallest publicly accessible inhabited island in the chain.[1] It is also known as Pineapple Island because of its past as an island-wide pineapple plantation.

In 1922, James Dole, the president of Hawaiian Pineapple Company (later renamed Dole Food Company), bought the island and developed a large portion of it into the world’s largest pineapple plantation.

Pineapple, Alabama has already been mentioned in this blog. The tiny town has a Banana and Cherry Street. Does it give further clues? Most likely. Perhaps the whole Cherry-Lime area of Ashville is actually called Pineapple. Or was (or will be).

And in reading the above link concerning Pineapple, see that I’ve already mentioned Cherry and Banana Street in this, and even provided a picture.

bb:

I’m still uncertain about the relationship between Apricot Bone and Sgt. Pepper. Is Apricot Bone a pretend band as well? I think you said before that it’s a Kinks variant band, like they also could have created in 1967. Instead they created the Village Green Preservation Society. “We are the Village Green Preservation Society”.

Hucka D.:

Apricot Bone is something else. Related to Pine Apple, Alabama and its Banana and Cherry Streets but more. Apricot is King Tull… 333. A tropic fruit.

And this is across the street.
I’m not sure I understand completely unless there’s a Rum Avenue nearby.

In Google Map Street View, just as you turn into Cherry Avenue from the south, you can see two pairs of people, 2 girls and then a girl and a boy, walking in opposite directions but who have *just crossed each other* in the middle of the first side street to the left as you head north. We have to zoom in to see them; they’re still about a football field and a half down Cherry Avenue from us here. Difficult to tell what they are yet…

… but in moving up Cherry Avenue the pairs become more resolved.

ashville301

They step up on opposite sides of the same street at the same time.

ashville302

The far couple walks past the first traffic island of the road heading north. We can now see that the foreground couple are 2 girls, perhaps teenagers still. We can also perhaps make out that one of the two pair in the background is holding a basketball.

ashville303

We pull even with the 2 girls. The other couple keeps heading down the street, now just past the first traffic island.

ashville304

We reach the intersection with the side street where the 2 pairs crossed as we entered Cherry Avenue. The symmetrical nature of the traffic islands becomes more clear. We are also about halfway between the 2 pairs of walkers at this juncture.

ashville305

We are almost on top of the middle part of the first set of traffic isles. We can now see that the couple still ahead of us is a man and a woman, with the man holding the orange basketball. The 2 girls continue down the street in the opposite direction. The girl with the orange hair has turned around to look at the Google Map car snapping these pictures.

ashville306

We pull basically even with the man and woman couple, or as even as we can get in our Street View. They notice the Google car for the first time; become aware they are being photographed. They are also passing a mysteriously placed rock cairn to their left, just behind the chain link fence.

ashville307

The cairn looks unbalanced, top-heavy.

ashville308

In this position, we are also as close to a midpoint between the two symmetrical sets of traffic islands in this part of the road as we can get.

We are also just at this time crossing a creek that flows under the road. This is the same creek that runs by the house with the fairies parked in the front yard discussed previously. The creek (as yet unnamed) has power.

(12/17/14 update: the stream is now named Linden Creek)

ashville311

The neighborhood is called Cherry Lime after the 2 main streets. Our little Google Earth orange basketballhead figure stands atop the creek on Cherry Avenue. Cherry, Lime, and Orange together, then. From this point on northward, the creek will basically parallel Cherry Avenue, adding to its energy. The 2 actually become one at this time, most likely.

Moving one step north in Street View, we can view a type of rock village beyond the fence. This is the only place we see this clearly. It seems to make some kind of natural pairing with the rock cairn to its left here.

ashville312

Detail.

ashville313

Then one more step brings us directly atop the middle of the 3 far traffic islands. Interesting house in front of us here as well, with a type of Japanese torii gracing the entrance. We’ll see another torii down this street soon. You can tell by the little map that we are just beyond the creek-road conjunction mentioned before.

ashville314

In the other direction, the man and woman are passing directly beside the rock cairn. The 2 girls are still staring at the Google car, fixed in their places. These are still the only people we have seen on this street. Indeed, they are the only walking people that will be encountered in Street View along this 3/4th mile avenue. What are the odds that they just happen to be exactly side by side with each other as we start the journey up this street from the south terminus?

The drama then seems to fade as we move past the far traffic islands into uninterrupted street again. In the next step, the 2 girls become permanently irresolute.

ashville316

What have we just passed here? I personally believe it is the essence of a collage.
