    It sounds as if something ominous is imminent Robus. Could this be a candidate for the Celebrity RIP thread?

    Thanks guys. Yes, a Wolvesmad tradition bites the dust. Thanks for the hosting tip. I will try it this evening. Seems Photobucket decided to stop giving away their service free.

    So here's the sad end to the bandstand. The tradesman came by this morning and finished hauling off the deck. The cedar had reached the end of its service life, and the posts supporting the structure were rotten through. It's a sad loss as the cost to replace it with something comparable would be in the range of $15,000-20,000. For that kind of money there is long list of projects we would do first. I'll probably plant a tree on the spot. Those crabapples along the fence aren't doing so well either.



    The bandstand as it will fondly be remembered:

    A sad day mate that's for sure. I must admit I didn't understand the post to begin with without the photo, but it all makes sense now.

    Nice to see you posting again.

    Sad day indeed.
    Feels like I've lost an overseas aunt or something

    On a serious note, good to see you posting robus.

    Ode to the Bandstand:

    You are my bandstand, my only bandstand
    You make me happy when skies are grey
    You'll never know dear, how much I love you
    Please don't take my bandstand away away

    With respect to Songwriter(s) Jimmie Davis, Charles Mitchell (disputed)

    The Duane Eddy version is instrumental and you can have hours of fun singing along to it!

    RIP Bandstand. I will never forget you!

    A window back into the good days on this board that's for sure.

    It seems such a long time ago that I made the comment 'Bloody hell Ray you appear to have a Bandstand in your back garden' little did I know what an Icon it would become.
    Seeing it as matchwood was quite upsetting to be fair.
    Still it's great to hear from you again Kidda!

    Yeah, it's been a few years now. I came on the forum in 2011. I'm sure the bandstand meme started not so long after.

    I have been perusing a site called amishgazebos.com. Lots to think about there...
