Break time. Beautiful day today. My rain guage had 3/4" in it this morning from last night's storm. A San Diego record for the month of May. I took down my shade tarp to enjoy the first full day of sun in about two weeks. Here is a little more progress:

This TV show called Shipmates was on while I carved this face. I watched these two people who hated each other spend three days together and have a horrible time going on all the pre arranged off boat activities. It reminded me of when I went on a seven day cruise. I was too full from all of the free food to go on any off boat adventures. I looked out of my window in the morning we docked in Puerto Vallerto. All the view afforded me was the large parking lot of the WalMart/ Sam's Club. I closed the blinds and went back to sleep. When I finally awoke to eat, I ran into an elderly gentleman in the elevator on the way to the buffett. He asked me if I was going to Walmart today; he excitedly explained to me that he just got back and found that it was just like the one at home. He was surprised that the store had the same products as back in the states. He was real happy with that and he told me that he was going back later in the afternoon. The best part of his vacation was finding walmart. The best part of mine was the movie channel and the food.

Buzzy that is exactly how I felt when I went to Puerto Vallarta ?sp. anyways I felt like I never left U.S. and I couln't wait to come home. The icing on the cake was when I saw Costco smack in the middle of everything towering over the city with its huge sign. It was really time to go home. The horror... Anyways I like the way the totem tiki is taking shape. Keep posting.

The cruises that I have been on, I went just for the boat ride and the food and ships activities. Most of the shore activities were really boreing and not worth the time. You were crammed into a tiny buss and it was not a fun time so after the first we just stayed onn the ship or did our own sightseeing, Ate, slept, ate some more, fed the slots a few minutes and ate some more. Then it was dinner time so ....

Oh, Yeah, your latest still looks great. Are you carving with the log on the ground? You may have more fun if you raise him up a bit. I know you hate to mess up good carving logs, but your back will begin to suffer soon if not already. Also your knees, your pants-legs, your neck and all that stuff. Make a small raised workbench.
Been on any cruises lately?

Benzart: I take your words here on this site and consider them to be the gospel of tiki. When you said that I was running low on logs, my heart started racing and I got real scared. Paranoid even. Could it be possible that I misjudged how long my supply would last? You really got me in a panic. To alleviate my grief, I went to the tree lot today to count my logs.



I could see about thirty, but there were some buried too.
Do you think I might have enough? Please tell me, oh wise one.
They are also taking down three more trees soon, and will add to the pile. I asked if they could manage to bring a 9-10 foot stump back to the lot to try a large scale carving. They said they will if they have the right trailer there when they take them down. Fingers crossed x2 on this request.

Bamboo fans: The tree service saves the bamboo they take down and use it as free lumber for fencing and gates on their lot. It's an interesting design scheme: bamboo and dilapidated greenhouse structures. Here is the current stock that they let me take from:

How much would you pay for all this at a bamboo speciality store?

Each piece is about ten feet long. The pile was three times as large two weeks ago.

I looked at a house in Vista today. The owners want two trees out front carved up



Not the ideal type of log, but I think I will give it a shot...

Worked all day on everything but carving. Until an hour or so ago, that is:

Do I get credit for two tikis in two days if I finish this one tonight? And can I put three more tikis on my resume when I finish the whole piece. If the general consensus is no, then chainsaw+two minutes of cutting=three finished tikis. I'm all about the numbers. Real work tomorrow. Goodnight all.

One log equals One carving. Put one or eleven tikis on it and still get one carving. Sorry, thats the way it goes. It IS three Tikis though, not just one. so you have One carving which consistes of three tikis which os a bargain for whoever buys the carving. You get as much credit as you want for the carving or carvings, which ever you chooze. I like the one on the bottom, cna I have just that one or will you throw in the top one anyway. Did I say 3 tikis, I meant 2 tikis but even if it was 2 or 3 you still get credit for 1 carving but I like the bottom one the best,,, Whats more,,,,

Something happened to me today called "work." Then something else crazy called "sleep" happened to me. Where did my day go?

Tikiland: I just sent you a short PM.

Hiltiki: I'll write you tomorrow.

Everyone else: Love you all

Right now I'm going to explore this "sleep" concept further.
Buzzy out
