Canary in the Coal Mine. #20 /31. The use of canaries in mines dates back to 1911. They were crucial in detecting deadly carbon monoxide and other toxic gases for the miners. As long as the bird was making noise, the men knew the air was safe. The birds were used until 1986. For more info and pics, go to historybones.com/canaryinthecoalmine or just hit link in bio.

My LATEST WORK!!! Haven't been posting my dio's lately but this one I had to put up! It was my first attempt at making something that has an organic nature to it so the task at first was pretty daunting. I have to commend (The Budget Jedi) for the inspiration and @thetacticalnerdist for getting me started on this Path of Dio making!

D.B. (Dan) Cooper. #19 /31
A man in a dark suit and tie boarded a Boeing 727 in Portland, Oregon, on the day before Thanksgiving in 1971. The man, Dan (D.B. in the press) Cooper, then proceeded to hijack the plane with a bomb in his briefcase. After receiving his demand of $200,000 in cash, 4 parachutes, and food for the crew during a forced landing, the plane took off again where Cooper lowered the rear stairs and jumped into the night. No evidence of Cooper (alive or dead) has ever been found. His politeness, style and enduring mystery have made him a legend.

I realized I have never posted a picture of the house my wee house is modeled after. It's was my grandparents house when I was little. I have THE best memories from there! I think I'm aaaalmost done with it. The main house anyway. Then I need to decorate it for Christmas and paint the canvas!
