Thanks Ben and Seeks, I guess I'll keep him from the fire for a few more
weeks. The real test will come when I get to smoothing and fine-tuning
the body lines. That will require some cocktails and squinting...we'll
see what happens.
And Seeks...you are generous in your comments. I can't tell you how many
times I have thought of your "Wafflehead"...and some of the recent Mooney
stuff...and wondered where in the heck I was going with this. Believe me,
there were plenny times I wish I had started with a traditional concept,
but it is now my humble mission to create a freakish figure that will fit
right in with the rest of my freaks. Family pics to follow:-)

Stick with it Conga, there's a lot of good that can come out of this guy still, no matter how skinny.

I hear ya on the snow... we just got another 3 today... puts us over 97 inches for the season. It was 50 degrees the last two days and I was able to get out on my new mountain bike, but it seems everytime I go for a ride it snows the next day.

Depressing.

Looks like a lot of rain next week, at least it will get rid of the snow and green things up finally. Like you said, it would be nice to get outside and do some work... I have a few logs that need to be debarked.

For sure, Conga... Go with something freakish if need be. We'll all dig it no matter what. I think he's lookin' great. I hear you northerners about the weather.. It was -1 up here this morning at 6:00a.m. It will warm up soon, Bros~

Conga, I still think you should tie the spie on the back seat of your Sicle and c'mon down to Florida. I don't know 'bout you but the spy looks like he Needs to get some sand in his shoes and sum sone in his hair. Come on and we'll fix youse right up. Mebbe you can take a Lono back with you too! Fancy that. Oh, Beans, I guess you'd have ta leave the Spy here, all3 of you can't fit on that thing, Darn, Well I'll promise to take good care of him. Sounds like da plan, how 'bout in June early , OK? OK then dun deel? See 'Ya

Thanks guys.
Lake and Freddie...you got it...spring is here. Put 18 miles on the
new road bike and had time to push a grinder into ole "skin n bones."
And thanks for the invite Ben, make sure I have a nice bed. Appreciate
the kind remarks Tikifreak. I'm not sure I would call my stuff creative
but some of it sure is wacky.




He's probably skinny enough, but I might get him on the treadmill for a
week or so.

Thanks for stopping by Hiltiki...so you like twisted huh? I think
I will have a few more twists before this one is done.

Seeksurf...thanks to you too! This is another slab of good old Wisconsin
basswood. Carves like buttah! I am having a great time with detail on
the headdress, mostly done with a hook knife.

Yeah, Conga, the detail on that headress looks great. You can tell your lovin' it.. I'm gonna have some basswood trees cut up, off of some property up here this summer. Lookin' to do some 7-12 inch carves. If you need some, lemme know and I can drop it by on my way to Wausau. I think you spoke too soon, though on the spring thing..... We're gettin' pounded with snow as I type.

Hey Freddie, I was wrong earlier in the week, but NOW, I think spring is
here! Working diligently to re-open the "Conga Lounge. Sometime when you
are heading south I'll have to thrown a gathering of the local tikiphiles.
Wait, I guess I'm the only one, but we'll throw something anyway.
Here's the weekend skinny on "Skinny."

Talk about atmosphere, this guy has so much that he is creating his own tropical foggy mist. Really nice work on him.

This reminds me of that alien autopsy. I like him. Glad
Spring finally has hit the North woods. Conga is my pal!
