PLASTICVILLE 2
47 WORDS

BEWARE BACKWARDS ANSWERS

  1. “Boy, is this place (_ _ _ _ _ _)”, you think to yourself as you examine the old brown (_ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _) hewn from felled trees a century or two ago.  It occupies a clearing in the woods behind the big glass (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) on your friend’s farm.
  2. You came here to film a story about the (_ _ _ _ _ _) your friend raises for derby racing.  You work for WPLA, a (_ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ _) back home in the big city.
  3. There are other (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) here of course; cows, pigs, goats.  There’s a good sized (_ _ _ _) for chickens among the various (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and what would a farm be without a barking (_ _ _) to keep the sheep under control?
  4. Today is (_ _ _ _ _ _) day, the day when all the area’s (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) make the short trip[ to town to sell their produce.  City dwellers might call this place (_ _ _ _ _), but to Plasticville’s residents it’s just plain home.
  5. While you’re in town, you stop by the big (_ _ _ _) with the green awnings.  You’ve become fast friends with the teller there and learn that she has an (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) in a two (_ _ _ _ _) building with balconies next door to the (_ _ _ _ _) that looks like an old railroad car.
  6. You’ve passed by her building a time or two and thought to yourself “if you (_ _ _ - _ -_ _ _ _ _) or two to this place, it would look just like the high-rises back home.”
  7. As you leave the bank, you spy a new (_ _ _ _ _) that is (_ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _).  They’ve got the walls up and are framing the roof of what looks like a cape (_ _ _) style home.
  8. The (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _) changes from red to green and you drive on in the Willy’s (_ _ _ _) you friend lets you use while you’re visiting.
  9. You pass the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) of the All-American (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) and note that the highway department employees are on the ball as all the traffic (_ _ _ _ _) stand like pointy rubber soldiers lined up for inspection.
  10. You’re headed to the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) to see the shiny new (_ _ _ _) that have arrived for the air show and are being serviced in the big (_ _ _ _ _ _).  You pass the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) which is part control (_ _ _ _ _) and part (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) building.  An (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) with four big propellers is waiting on the tarmac for clearance to take off.  It may be a B-29.
  11. Before the airport was built, this place was a hobo (_ _ _ _ _ _) and then a (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _) for mobile homes.
  12. After getting some film of the newest jets, you swing past the railroad (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) tower that was added a few years ago where an old (_ _ _ _ _) tower with a wood tank once stood.  There’s still a small (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) here for freight.
  13. “(_ _ _ _ _ _) light or (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) lamp?” you wonder to yourself as you pass the many graceful globe-topped green devices along the road to the (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) store.  Your friend asked you to purchase a few things there while you were tooling around in his vehicle.
  14. Heading back to the market, you pass the small three-room (_ _ _ _ _) and note that it’s a good thing you don’t need a bed as the “NO VACANCY” sign is lit.  Although the “NO” part of the neon struggles to do so.  There’s a cute little wishing (_ _ _ _) in the garden out front of the office that looks like it was dropped right out of a storybook.
  15. Back at the market now, your friend says he had a great day and as you cross the big steel (_ _ _ _ _ _ _) (_ _ _ _ _ _) over the river your companion notes that trains used to use it before a line relocation.  But you think to yourself “I’m not here to shoot ‘The Bridges of Plasticville County’” as you head back for some great (_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _) cooked on the brick hearth you helped construct on a previous visit.  “The ribs always seem better when they’re grilled in Plasticville U.S.A.” you think to yourself hungrily.  “He had better have saved some of that corn too!”  It is a holiday weekend after all!
