Mellow Yellow Monday #34

Remember when we used to call these water fountains? ha! Okay, it's not exactly like the old water fountains, but when I saw this at the Canadian Exhibition last week I thought it was pretty funny. Although, it is a good idea (click on the photo for a larger view).


Thanks again to all who participated! See you next week :) And until then check out the links below for lots of great MYM photos.

Elaine Yim said...

These refill stations are very helpful especially when outdoors.

The Pink Geranium or Jan's Place said...

loving the yellow!

Rinkly Rimes said...

Not familiar to an Australian but certainly very yellow!

maryt/theteach said...

What a great idea! Hope that begins to become a popular thing! :)

Norm said...

that's good especially during outdoor activities, happy Monday for tomorrow..

Nukke said...

That is very interesting yellow idea ! Not seen in Finland :)

Carletta said...

I think it's a great idea if people don't touch the top of their bottle to the spout. :)

Filipina Blogger said...

This is really cool and very handy for outdoor events.

Liz said...

Nice find! Mine is here. Happy MYM!

VioletSky said...

Susan Cook said...

That is funny. Modern times I guess. People don't remember what it was like to drink right out of the water fountain, now everyone uses water bottles. Thanks for sharing.

Ms. Journ said...

What a cool station hehehe.. i love the style. My MYM here.

Gypsy Lala said...

That is a great idea, lovely yellow.

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

Certainly eye-catching. Hope people wash them out enough between refillings. I've posted a flower macro here:

Pamela K H said...

Unique choice for MYM. Works for me! Feel free to check out my post. Thanks for sharing.

Sharon said...

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday to you all!

Christie, Describe Happy said...

Happy Mello Yellow monday! Great shot of the new version of a water fountain, I like it!

Martha said...

Interesting! Sure makes filling bottles easier! To think we always drank out of water fountains.. now the idea of it makes me queasy!


happyone said...

That's a different idea!! Good choice!!

life's journey said...

Yes it is a good choice indeed...Mine is up...

Miranda said...

This is what we need on a hot day!!

Hugs and blessings,

bobbie said...

Good one!

Mom Knows Everything said...

Opps...late posting today. School starts tomorrow and we've been very busy. Have a great week! :o)

JunieRose2005 said...

Neat MYM post!! :)

I have mine up now!


Stephanie V said...

Eye-catching yellow. It makes more sense than a water fountain in these days of worry about public hygiene.

Kranky Granny said...

I have never seen one of these before but it is certainly in keeping with the times.

Euroangel said...

in guess seen this before in Vegas

fasching festival

Mimi said...

That is a fantastic idea!
And nice and bright too.
Didn't get it until I clicked on the photo.
Happy MYM

Martha@A Sense of Humor is Essential said...

I love yellow signs, thanks for sharing and Happy MYM!

Nedekcir said...

Can I say ... where is the water coming from?

MYM said...

As for where the water is coming from I wondered that too. I'm not sure but it was cool like it was coming from a large water cooler. But Toronto water used to be bottled and sold I believe. The weird thing is - Toronto recently banned bottled water because of environmental reasons. It's all strange, lol

annies home said...

rather odd find since I have never seen anything like this before

Dinah said...

This is my first time to join, thanks for the nice meme! Please let me know if Im doing it right!

mellow yellow

Clara said...

What a great idea! And it looks like a much easier way to fill the bottle that using a regular drinking fountain. Someone should get a big gold star for this one.

xinex said...

I just discovered this meme and I like yellow so I will definitely participate someday soon. Hopefully you can participate for Sightseeing Saturday too...Christine
