The Davids are Gone

Posted by on November 28, 2011

For years, whenever anyone comes to visit me I have taken them by the House of David.  That is, Norwood Young’s house.  He had over twenty small replica statues of Michelangelo’s David lining his mansion’s driveway.  It was wonderfully tacky.

My friends, enjoying the sights of the city

He put them up in the fall of 1996, the neighbors were not impressed.  It got even better at Christmas.

Now they are gone, I took this photo on Friday.

Apparently, the house is on the market and there was an estate sale.  I am sad.  It looks so ordinary.
