EVERYONE Needs a Hand-Made Whirligig

We have often driven past the whirligig man’s house (the corner of 12th and Maple if I’m remembering correctly).  We have admired the colourful contraptions hanging from the branches of a tree in his yard.  Finally we purchased this “Crazy Bird.”  It makes me smile every time I look at it, hanging there twirling above the back deck.  I’d love one on every corner of the house!  I think you should all go buy one right now and make Jack happy.  Get it directly from him (if you buy it elsewhere you’ll pay twice as much).  Ask Jack if you can peek into his studio at the back of the house – it’s crazy in there.  He has branched out into furniture now.  His is one prolific cottage industry.  Support local folk artists!
