Tulip Man

My girlfriend, Mary, has a number of bright hand-painted tulips in her yard. Come to find out her father made them. On her last trip to Florida she brought me back four. They proudly surround our garden frog, Horacio.  For the past 13 years Mr. Kautzer (Mel) has also made Cardinals, Blue Jays, small ducks, giraffes, cats and other pieces as gifts for friends and family. At 91 years young, Mel has decided to hang up his tools. I’m grateful that I get to enjoy that special part of him everyday. Thanks Mr. Tulip Man.
