So excited we were able to take from Hollywood to Dollywood this weekend for the 25th anniversary of the park. This was a custom birdhouse of her childhood mnt home. and we put it in her hands! Well worth the cross country roadtrip where we faced Floods in Nashville, Tornados in Oklahoma, and Sandstorms in New Mexico. Dollywood was home spun fun!! Thanks, Michael

Man, that’s exciting!

The only thing wrong in the photo is that your birdhouse is blocking Dolly’s finest attributes. :-)

How wonderful for you. I am sure she was very pleased with it.
I met her years ago. She is a very gracious lady.

Congratulations! I bet that was a real trip. I grew up in that area. Back in the 60s, Dollywood was called Rebel Railroad and was a Western theme park. The only ride was the steam locomotive. Today it’s Snuffy Smith’s version of Disney World.
