Artie – My Inspiration for Gooseneck Lights

Hey, everyone! Glad to be back again. It’s been a while since my last post but I want to tell you guys a little something that I’ve never shared with anyone. So, as you know from my last post I’m like, really into gooseneck lights. I love everything that has to do with them, outdoor gooseneck lights and all sorts of gooseneck light fixtures.

But anyway, I want to get into why i have such a fascination for them.

Many years ago, when I was Jo the toddler before I became Jo Curi, I lived on a farm with my pops. We had all different kinds of animals that I would care for on a day-to-day basis. I mean we literally had every animal that hopped onto Noah’s Ark. But there was one animal in particular that I spent the majority of my time with. His name was Artie, and Artie was a certified goose. We would spend many hours together, usually playing ping pong and sometimes we would switch it up and play skee ball (using his eggs of course), and I would usually win. So anyways, a few years later Artie passed away because of a unsturdy ceiling light hanging in the that fell on his head. Long story short – Artie died and I keep his memory alive with my lights.
