Max is on the go and Ma's playing "matchmaker"

The weekend before last, we went on lots of our little mini-adventures....
Like my new ride?
Just kidding - it was parked across the street from the "Beer Can House"

It took a REALLY long time for my son and Max to drink all this beer :) ....kidding!!!
It's the work of John Milkovisch and an estimated 50,000+ beers cans that create the beer can house.

That's a LOT of beer tops and it sounds super cool whenever it rains too!

An interesting mural near our next stop

Hey, Easy...I hear she's single :) 
Don't worry Easy, he says they're "just friends" :) 
Have a beautiful today and remember Easy does it out there in this heat with your pups! 
(I know, I know...Don't Quit My Day Job right!?!)
Seriously though, if you happen by strange chance not to know Easy, I highly recommend visiting his blog!

    1. Well, Houston is spread out so nothing seems to be near each other but I like to drive so it's ok :)

  3. That would be like living in a giant wind chime.....I have seen houses made out of actual beer bottles - one back home in OZ - they filled the bottles with water, sealed them and then mortared them together to make the walls - it actually keeps the house very cool. I think all those can lids rattling in the wind could get pretty annoying after a while though :) Gosh - we though you had met our buddy Goose when we saw the other dogs

    1. Yes, I can sorta see a Goose vibe there too! Wow, bottles with water does sound like it would surely make for great insulation! Bet in about 1 week you wouldn't even hear the chimes anymore although I work in a pediatric facility and I swear I am like the only one there that never hears screaming kiddos until someone else mentions it, I can tune anything out I think :)

  9. The beer house is something I'd like to see for myself. Wow! That is indeed something. Is it just the facade that comprises the beer cans?

    1. I'm pretty sure it is just the outside mostly but have never gone inside so I can't say for sure, sorry about that.

  14. Interesting beer can house! I bet my Dad could build one of those QUICKLY since he's a beer guy. We TOTALLY know Easy and think that girl doggy in the photo would be quite the match for him! I hope the fact he's WAY on the other side of the pond won't keep this romance from blooming......I'll tell Easy I'll loan him my hang-glider so he can come visit her!!

    1. Sammy, you've got the right idea! or Dad could build a beer airplane for Easy to go on his first date with her :)

  15. She is single? REALLY? Do you have her phone number, Max? What's her name? I like this ride, it looks pretty cool! And I hope Mr. Milkovisch has no headaches after 50k cans of beer :o)

    1. Yep, he's a little dude, but my son is also 6'4" if that helps really show Max's size.

    1. I'm sure those neighbors weren't all that thrilled when it was being "created" but now it's at least a landmark :)

  21. That Milkovisch fellow must've thrown one heck of a party to have been able to collect that many beer cans, bottles, and tops.
