May, 2001 Contest: What Is The Most Unique Thing Inside Or Outside Your Home?

Congratulations to our contest winner!
Bridget Scarbrough of Quinton, VA

Throughout our home you will find a story just waiting to be told in each and every thing that dwells here. But, one of the most unique is a statue that I purchased about 6 years ago. It is a man holding a giant fish and it is made of crushed pecan shells. However, that is not what makes it unique – the fact that the man looks exactly like my grandfather is the reason it is unique. It resembles him so much that when my son was 2 1/2 years old he asked me why we had a statue of grandpa holding a fish – and at that point he had only seen this grandpa on a few occassions. It makes for a great conversation piece!
