At One Time I Had Everything…

Yeah, a while back I was proud as pickles to act as a servant runner-up for the great Barney of The World Famous Barney’s Motel.

Oy, those were the days…

No doubt about it, this sign got us some attention

Then we got burned out…

Yep, The Old Barnster Had A Weird Sense Of Humor

People would stop to take photos of our sign – cool!

And I got some good stories to tell about them, too.

Stick around, friend.

    I might try this – thanks for the idea.
