Oh, god…where did you hear about this? Are people talking about it on Facebook?
Yes that’s exactly it. Peter Tork’s Facebook page posted a link all about it. And it looks as though the woman in charge of the purple flower gang is the genius behind it.
…Of course she is. And the sad thing is that if you look at the crowd-funding page that’s been created for this, every single one of the “incentives” for donating money are things that can only happen if the B+B/museum actually get built. Which defeats the entire purpose of an incentive, because it’s supposed to be something that people can actually get.
But yes…the idea of turning Davy’s home into a bed and breakfast is exactly the sort of garish nightmare that we envisioned could happen under the right (wrong) circumstances. If this happens, people will probably try to steal Davy-related mementos from the home or who knows what. Of course, this is all contingent on the town of Beavertown actually approving the construction of the B+B and allowing these people to obtain the proper permits in the first place.
This is not to say that certain people’s hearts aren’t in the right place, but given the logistics and the slightly morbid nature of the whole project, It seems like it would be better to just let Davy rest in peace…
