Topic tags/keywords: extreme birdhouses animal planet

Today is the day for Animal Planet to come to Cranbrook Ontario to film me and my Extreme Birdhouses .
The crew will be here for the day so it should be very interest to say the least . lol
I just hope it warms up soon . It is – 14c now

This past weekend my son and i were busy clearing all the snow away .
He brought his 45” snowblower along with a 8 ft blower so it didn,t take long to get the job done .

John, thanks for the pictures. It does sound like today is going to be an interesting one. But I doubt if any of your tenants will complaint about the intrusion, though.

And seeing that kind of equipment (and temperature) is impressive. Just to give you a perspective down here when it gets below -7C it is unusual and the public schools were out yesterday because we had 1/4” of snow.

Hey John – Congratulations on the animal planet shoot, would love to be there and see first hand your bird houses and meet with you, and get to watch, as I am into photography and love photo equipment as well as wood tools. Best of luck and looking at your pictures, well…..... BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! I’ll stay in Florida.

Should be quite an experience for both you and the film crew. Looks like you got things cleared for them, now it’s time to let the show begin. I’m eagerly awaiting the final product and the stories that are sure to come. Good for you John and thanks for keeping us up to date.

Hey Buddy;

A hearty congratulations to you.

Well, you got the famous part out of the way, now get started on the rich part.

I really don’t think it’s polite of them to refer to you as an animal, though! LOL

Great going, buddy.

Thank you everyone for all the great comments . Everything went pretty smoothly yesterday . The hardest part was being outside for 9 hours . It was about – 12 c all day . The producer and camera man came from Atlanta so they weren,t prepared for our winter and the boom guy was from London Ontario . The show is going to be a 6 part series and i will be in the second one . They filmed about 6 or 7 hours worth of stuff just to cut it down to about 6 minutes of air time . It will be aired in 3 – 4 months so i will post a message just before then.

It,s funny as much as i thought i was prepared for this as soon as they turn the lights and camera on it,s completely different and not always easy to say They also filmed my son Jamie . what you want .
