That's My World - Miss Liberty



My husband does sub-contract work for a company called Moran Iron Works. The owner, Tom, builds a new statue every year. These statues are kept a surprise all year, and then get unveiled during the Independence Day parade. His latest unveiling was this Miss Liberty. Tom builds these, but he is not a painter, so guess who gets to do the paint work? Yep, that would be my husband. This statue now sits in front of a Subway in Onaway, Michigan.

That looks really funny. You could put a ladder there and take people to see sights from the tower, just like in the real one.

Now that's interesting, and a great glimpse into your world. It must make life interesting to see what's created each time.
