A Most Unusual Christmas Present


MikeStephanoNow here’s something none of you have – For Xmas my wife to be commissioned a special, one of a kind birdhouse by HVBC (Hudson Valley Bottle Club) Club Treasurer Art Church, a friend of ours. Art builds birdhouses sort of as a hobby and to sell them, one of kind folk-art. Peg co-conspired w/Art without me knowing it to custom make this birdhouse for me. There are a lot of themes going on around it, including stuff Peg & I have done, places we like to go, etc….overall just a great effort and I just loved it. Thought you’d all like to see.
