Day 15- The Birdcage beginnings and more

Dee Greville has great stories to tell and today she shares about The Birdcage (the stories she could tell on video, lol!), serving lunch at Rotary for 20 years and a little about her life growing up in the 1920s and 30s. She looks and sounds great and you’d never know she is in her 90s now.

One of my favorite things I learned about Dee when I was a kid was that she put lipstick on every night before bed, just in case something happened in the middle of the night and someone would have to see her! When we talked about that today, she said it also kept her lips from getting chapped. 🙂

Enjoy! And if you want to know more stories about her Birdcage days, just ask her. She has some good ones!

 

A few pics from her album:

Before it was called The Birdcage, it was called the Windsor Grill. A group of men from Bell Telephone who installed the phone lines in Kane would go up for drinks and started calling it The Birdcage. Even after they left town, the name stuck

 

Check out those prices!

 

We had to add a video of her bird cage today 🙂
