"Down goes Frazier!!"

This bird house 
found a home on our tree many years ago
when my father in law moved in with us.

As they say on "American Pickers"
it was a "bundle".

We packaged my father in law
2 cats
and a bird house.

I was informed by my wife while I was on the boat
that we lost another tree.
When I came home 2 days ago I was met with this.

The bird house didn't stand a chance.

I couldn't help but think of the immortal words of Howard Cosell 
as he called the Foreman/Frazier fight
"DOWN GOES FRAZIER!!"

My apologies to all non boxing fans
who have no idea what I am talking about.

Brought up a boxing fan. My father, my brother, my husband. But there's no good heavy weight boxing anymore. It's like a lost era. SNIFF.

Smiling, I do remember that comment by Howard. Was the bird house totaled?
