Steve's Birdhouse

I guess I am not the only nostalgic one in the family. I was with my kids on Gma Eloise's hill and took a picture of the old bird hotel my Gpa Burl made decades ago. Then, I went to see Steve's new place and he had built one just like it for his yard. Here they are......

Funny WV sign. This is not a joke.

This was hanging in a roadside store on Rt. 50 in Cool Springs, WV. Gma Judy, Carson, Sam, and I drove there to see the store with all the old time toys and the donkeys. I almost peed my pants when I saw it!
