When I was small my grandmother had this little wooden box that hung outside by her door. When you opened the box there was a pad of paper and a pencil inside. On the door of the box was a wooden disk with a rooster on it. It had a rhyme written on it saying tilt the rooster so it would be known you left a note.
I decided I wanted to make one for myself, and I could picture it very well, but I couldn't remember the little rhyme. I would barely have been able to read the last time I saw it, so we're talking 30 years or so ago.
I posted a description of it in the random ramblings thread and only 2 days later I got a response and a picture of the exact item!
Check it out... I can't wait to make mine, and to make it even better... the rooster is copper! That is what I am the very best at forming.Edited by matlock585 - 8/15/12 at 9:53pm
