It's amazing what you stumble across at garage sales sometimes. My newest yard ornament was originally at a 1950's "themed" drive in restaurant on US Highway 2.
The blade turns freely in a slight breeze.
It stands 7 feet to the roof peak and 10 feet to the top of the blade. A door opens in the back to facilitate garden tool storage or possibly little visitors who show up at Cedar Hill now and then.....

(The Willy in the photo is 12 inches tall)

Tell me... HOW COOL IS THIS????? grinnnn

I have to repair some of the trim and do a little touch up painting but I'm leaving the original paint job.
When I saw it at the sale I HAD to have it! (and it was only $200) clp

Nowwwwwwwww that would be a neat idea....
We go play at a person's house *the Boyscout troop goes* that bought an old putt~putt set~up..
It is soooo much fun...
You could landscape fun stuff *low maintainance stuff* inside the game...

Orrrrrrrrr you could put a mini~pond by it and make it look like the ocean and that it's looking out on the ocean..

*Justttt some ideas* thumbup cool

I have NO IDEA, but somehow I KNOW that it will be the cause of a lot of work when I finally figure it out!

How about if he just sets up a wild and wicked Croquet Course?

That would look great out in the lawn where you have set up the croquet set before. And instead of overlooking an "ocean", it can overlook the field of green, gazing down upon the Bus Stop. It would also look nice in the Rody forest.

Last Thursday, my Wonderful Wind Machine suddenly and unexpectedly shifted into high gear and began spinning at approximately mach 7. shk
For the next 24 hours, it created havoc throughout the state of Washington. I sincerely apologise to the 1,000,000 folks who spent the last week in the dark! shocked

All those trees down. You all sure had it bad up there. Is that the main road headed up to your place?

Those trees are way to close to your house. Glad you made it through safe!

Holy wind Willy! That windstorm made the news here in Ontario. Hope you made it through OK. Looks like you lost a lot of trees.
