Day 222 - Papa's Puffin

This door knocker belonged to Peg's Dad. It was proudly mounted on their home beside the door. There were many jokes made about it over the years, none that I will repeat here. It does conjure up a smile from us all when the topic of Dad's knocker comes up! While Dad has passed away, his memory still brings us great happiness. We put the puffin up on the shed today. I think Dad's looking down with a wise crack at the ready.
