I got a new birdbath. A couple of our older cement models had been leaking, so I stopped at a favorite "treasure" shop on the fringe of Dallas to look around. Here's the metal birdbath I bought.
I've bought things there before, like one of the cement bird baths and also our metal gazebo.
The man who works there remembers me each time I stop by, remembers where I live (since they had to deliver and assemble the gazebo), and asks me if I'm still enjoying the gazebo. Well, as I pulled the car up so he could load the birdbath in the trunk, he included one of their metal flying pigs - just because I told him I thought they were cute and that they made me smile. He made my day!!!
So this little flying pig sits in a flower bed near the front door, and now makes me smile every day! Thanks, "Wolfman"!
