So 8 days, and its all starting to fall into place, this morning I wanted to finish the stuff I started Tuesday.
Ta-Da! Meet George, the Flamingo Drive-ins cowboy mascot.
In the movie "The Flamingo Rising" from which my Drive-In is based, George is 80 feet tall and neon lit. However, since my Flamingo is the Worlds smallest Drive-in George is 8 feet. The detail on the bandanna is straight from the movie, and possibly my favorite part of the cowboy.
NO THIS DOES NOT STAND FOR 'FIRE DEPT', It stands for Flamingo Drive-In.
Next I had to finish the platform on which George stands, and as corny as it is he send you a big texas HOWDY.
I even took the time to make the letters look like rope. George being a cowboy and all we thought it was fitting. Next up was a repaint job on the little sign that sits in the Drive -In... the harsh winter snow was not very good to the paint...
Now its good as new! Tomorrow all I have to do is paint the Limbo stick, and the sticks that hold up the window shutters. Here's a group picture off all today's projects, I think they all look pretty well together.
