Several years ago, Jackson decided that Texas First Title Company would have a year round tree. The theme he choose was whimsical and eclectic.
Not quite certain where to start on that project he was able to find a purple pig that oinked and dog toy stuffed chickens which made funny noises when held by their head and shaken up and down.
Then he found the title company’s new greeter. It is a stuffed Woody the Woodpecker with the original Walter Lang voice! Nearly everyone who picks up it up ends up with a hearty laugh! The greeter puts smiles on children of all ages – even adult ones!
To fill out the tree, Jackson found stuffed birds and a squirrel. The company that makes them partnered with the Ornithology Department at Cornell University to capture the bird’s native songs.
The tree is there to be whimsical, but educational, too! Few parents take the time to teach children about birds in their neighborhood these days.
Jackson’s second grade teacher, Ms. Harris, taught her students about them. Ms. Harris and the birds she taught about were Jackson’s first safety zone from the horrifics of childhood he experienced.
