Giant Needle and Thread

Outside of Meissner Sewing is a giant needle and thread. It is conveniently along the highway -- no need to pull over. You can just gawk as you pass.

[Roadside Millie, 03/07/2011]

Up close, it looks like a flagpole sharpened to a point. In fact, it probably works best as a drive-by sight.
