Camp Guy add-ons

As you may of heard about a new Camp Guy add-on called "Camp Guy Farms". Some time in the future we'll have a theme park farm. I'm giving my dad plans for the play area. So far we have a 39'X42' pre-school age, a 54'X70' school age playgrounds and, a 25'X15' swing area. The farm will have other things. Once we have the farm off the ground we'll put in an RV park next to it so people can spend the night. That's the plan for "Camp Guy Farms. James and Greg

Christmas @ CAMP GUY

Here at Camp Guy we like the holidays. We're so exited when it comes around. The bid for the "Guy" and "Needville Blue Jays" birdhouses ended last Saturday(12-6-08). My dad didn't say if anyone placed there bid. So I'm giving the "Needville Blue Jays" birdhouse to my teacher at Needville ISD Mrs.Carew for Christmas. The "Guy" birdhouse will start selling to a worthy customer for $80.00. We'll lower the price a bit but, we'll only lower it down to $45.00 tops. We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! James and Greg

The Space Shuttle makes an appearance in Guy, Texas

The white dot below the flashing red light is the Space Shuttle Endeavor which was on top of a 747 jet aircraft. The picture does not do it justice, but You could see both planes with your naked eye.

This is Jame's first post on the Blog.

I have great news, my Aunt Christy suggested that I should be moved up in rank from Helper to Partner! My dad has agreed to sign a Deed to do that. Now I'm making new bird houses that might be for sale, but they'll be rare and might only on the website.

Grandpa's Bird House

When We were painting houses last week James asked if he could paint one for himself. He wanted an "apartment" one. He then went and picked out plates for it. He painted it completely inside and out. He said he did not want the birds to get splinters from the wood and that this house was "special" so it had "upgrades" that isn't included in regular houses.
He completed the house and installed the plates himself. He did have some help from mom when it came to installing the chain.
He was very proud of this house and he said it was to honor his grand fathers. He has both an US ARMY plate and an US NAVY plate for the sides and a DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS plate for the roof. The house came out really nice and he is trying to decide where he is going to hang it up at.
I just might have to promote him from "Helper".

Paint Day

James came in and assisted in the painting of the primer coat. He would start them and I would finish them (quality control). It is nice to have a helper in the shop. He then used the break area to rest up from the hard work.

James Goes for a Ride......

This is a picture of the first ride that James went on. After a hard day of work, James was excited to ride around the block. Out here in Guy, Texas that is several miles. James enjoyed the ride but wants to wear the "police helmet".

Not On the Road Again.......

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Our normal Fall Show Schedule as been cut way back. We enjoy hitting the road and interacting with our customers at Art and Craft Shows, Festivals, and Trade Days events. We will however, have our products available through our website.

We are finally getting back in the shop and doing what we do best, making license plate themed bird houses. We have some exciting new themes available this year. Keep watch here and on the website for the new product postings.

I hope I will go back to a regular schedule very soon. I would like to thank my repeat customers and my new customers for understanding the delay in processing orders.

New Motorcycle

I finally got fed up with paying my gas bill and bought a new 2008 Honda Goldwing 1800. I have had the bike for about two weeks now and I really enjoy it.
Now I know why my motorcycle theme products go so fast. Motorcycling is a lifestyle and it does not matter if your a blue collar worker or a white collar suit, If your riding your in a brotherhood. I have rode it in the TEXAS heat and survived.
I now ride it to my "real" job everyday, which is 100 miles round trip. I have really learned a lot from my instructor and coach Sonny Martinez. Sonny had been a motor officer with METRO Police Department and a certified police motorcycle instructor.

Texas Made

All of our wood products are MADE IN TEXAS, GUY TEXAS, That is. We are proud that we make our speciality license plate themed bird houses and feeders by hand in our shop. The pictures of each of the product represents the theme, but due to the fact they are hand made, there maybe little differences in each product.
