Here we are hanging out in the Bird. (BTW – we have had a lot of great comments about this photo – it was taken by our friend and photographer, Robin May.)
You can see it in our eyes – we are dreaming up more fun and fun ways for folks to help us keep it all going. The Whirlybird building was magically and generously returned to us by a friend on a hand-shake – but, it turns out we need some help to finally get the building paid off. Borrowing is not a good solution to this situation.
We got this idea of a Whirlybird Fan Club from friends – a Fan Club with membership that is specifically geared to clear the debt to a Whirlybird friend who made it possible to continue Whirlybird activities, to support our creative and artistic efforts with The Whirlybird, and, to create a supplemental fund for payments to collaborating artists. Read all about it. . . and join us. And, Jim has decided to throw in some personal stories – lagniappe and as an enticement – stories from a life of fun and adventure – chapters from his first literary projects. Be the first to read – well, we mean – hear some of Jim’s stories in audio form right here on a special webpage created just for you as a subscribing member of The Whirlybird Society and Fan Club.
Be one of the first to go on a self-discovery trip with Jim as he explores the “WHY?” behind his mother’s “thinking-out-loud” comment at the dinner table one night. It was years after his father had died, and his Mom was in a pensive mood, looking innocently and thoughtfully towards him, but yet beyond him, as if she were contemplating the great mysteries of life, when she quietly said, “I can’t believe you came from your father and me.”
