Two buddies Bob and Earl were two of the biggest baseball fans in America. For their entire adult lives, Bob and Earl discussed baseball history in the winter and they pored over every box score during the season. They went to 60 games a year. They even agreed that whoever died first would try to come back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven.
One summer night, Bob passed away in his sleep after watching the Yankee victory earlier in the evening. He died happy. A few nights later, his buddy Earl awoke to the sound of Bob's voice from beyond. 'Bob is that you?' Earl asked.
'Of course it me,' Bob replied.
'This is unbelievable!' Earl exclaimed. 'So tell me, is there baseball in heaven?'
'Well I have some good news and some bad news for you. Which do you want to hear first?'
'Tell me the good news first.' 'Well, the good news is that, yes, there is baseball in heaven, Earl.'
'Oh, that is wonderful! So what could possibly be the bad news?' 'You're pitching tomorrow night.'
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.
