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.
