Can we see a picture with both buildings in it? Or two pics, one of each building with the sun where it currently sets, at the same zoom level?

p.s. - Tongue Biter must be on a little adventure 'cause he hasn't made it to my office yet. I'll give him another day or two to sow his oats.

p.p.s. - Thanks for the booty shots!

Jacobean stain is pretty cool!

Sure cuz...lawn mower no problemo...my weed wacker is on the blink though. You want to borrow my machete too? I must say, I have to side with the Reverend on keeping it long...very artsy man...maybe some cool crop circles dude?

Can I borrow your burner again?

Yes! Let the grass grow!!!

A short story by Bamboo Ben.

" Real Tall Grass"

When I was a wee one moons ago, Eli used to grow his grass real tall in the back of the Island Trade Store. When they had parties he'd sneak back there and pat down the grass in trails. Then he'd grab all the young cousins and bring us back to try to find the Gila Monster. Freaked us all out every time!

Your grass always takes me back when it's long.

Thank you for the re-memories Mr. Buzz.

I finished the ring last night. I still have to wait a couple hours to seal it:

I made it normal handed person sized, so it only goes up to the first pinky knuckle on my left hand.

I hope that doesn't ruin the surprise.

It's Taco Tuesday (3 x $1.09, after 3pm) at Del Taco and yet another beautiful day in paradise!

As a warm up for Taco Tuesday, I helped install the two tikis today.

Yesterday the concrete stands were poured.

The tikis will sit on top of these pillars. Concrete will be poured to seal in the base. The slot in it was left to slide the tiki in and will eventually form a 1" ring around it.

They were set to fit the tikis between them and the new overhang.


It took a little lifting, sliding, and gentle nudging to finally get them into place.



There will be wooden deck behind them, and it will have a lot more polynesian decor and bamboo on the back wall. In front of them, is a large slab that leads to a interior dance studio. The area in front of these guys will be used as a practice place for a polynesian dance review


This is what it looks like walking up from the street towards the front door. the blue tarp is covering the doors to the dance studio.


And another view looking towards the street. There will be a walkway behind the guys with a gate that will be the main entrance to the house. You'll have to walk behind the tikis to get to the fromt door.


Wouldn't this be a nice view to come to everyday?



The facts that it's sunny and Taco Tuesday, makes this one of the best days ever!
Buzzy Out!

I like these so much, I'm thinking about getting a job so that I could have enough money to hire myself to do this over at my house. I can probably cut myself a pretty good deal too, save some money on taxes.

Global warming is back!

Resin castings from silicone molds, eh Buzzy? That's a good idea. I'm going to do that too! Can you post some more pictures so I can see how you do it? Thanks.
