A farmer in his pickup truck in Alabama was driving across a bridge when he noticed a man standing on the rail of the bridge ready to jump to his death in the river below. The man stopped his truck ran up to the man and said, 'Hey fellow, why are you doing this?'
The man replied, 'Well, I have nothing to live for.'
The Alabama man replied, 'Well, think of your wife and children!'
The jumper replied, 'I have no wife or children.'
The Alabama man then said, 'Well, then think of your mother and father!'
The man replied, 'Mom and Dad passed on many years back.'
The Alabama man then said, 'Well, think of General Robert E. Lee!'
The would-be jumper replied, 'Who?'
With that the Alabama man said, 'Jump, you stupid Yankee, jump'
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
