Sunset:


The last week has been a blur....

It was all going quite well and I had the two tall tikis all sanded and ready to be detailed:

It was real hot and dirty work, so I went to go swim in the lake before I started to do the final work on them.

When I got down to the lake shore, I found some dude measuring something:


He told me he was some fancy pants decorator from the city somewhere and he was going to do some building and that I needed to help him with it for a few days. I looked him up online and read about him and the stuff he makes. I went back out to him and said,"Hey, I just did some research on you online."
He paused from measuring stuff out and introduced himself to me. I pointed to his tape measurer and asked if he was using it a lot on this job. He said so far, yes. So then I asked Bamboo Ben when exactly it was that he sold out to the establishment and started using a f'n ruler!

Next thing I know, I'm digging holes, screwing screws, and lugging lumber to hell and back. Here's some big poles that we set:


Here's a video clip of some help we got from local legend Crazy Kelly Osbourne
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2TdhzqjCuA
I'll have "pics soon" of the final outcome. There's still some minor work to do on them.

My dog could only bury her head in the sand in horror while it was all happening:


After Ben left, I had to make a bunch of these:

It's all soap... my house is a mess after making those, but the good news is that the mess is soap. So I guess have the cleanest mess possible?

In other around here news, I got a glimpse of the baby dove:

After looking at the lazy efforts put into nest making by the mama dove, I have decided that I no longer like dove.

My new favorite bird is the bird who made this nest:

way better than a pile of sticks on a net!

I thought that nest looked like a mini tiki hut, so I decorted it up a bit:


I heard a voice in my head that told me to climb up a 20 foot ladder and put the tiki there. Funny thing is, the voice had a German accent and sounded a lot like Sven.

I've started to run into a few of these now and again:

Can you eat toads? I'm sure it's a delicacy somewhere...Send recipies if you have them

Owl update:
Found them on the island the other evening:

This guy was on the opposite shore:


Here's another picture of my dog standing in the lake:

She does that all the time.

Finally, I went to a junkyard that specialized in planes and airport junk for research purposes:



Strange things about the plane junkyard are that nothing's for sale and it costs $2000 to take pictures there!

I got busted for something that I cannot discuss here, and as a result I was placed on house arrest for anywhere from a couple to few years. Since I couldn't leave my house or grounds as part of my sentence, I resettled somewhere where it was so large and cool that it didn;t matter that I couldn;t leave. In fact, I don't want to leave! Ha, take that justice system! I'm doing your time in paradise!

It actually looks like it was chewed off...I wonder what critter around here did that?


At Mojave Oasis, even the bird's nests are Tikified!

BUZZ, I would be very suspicious of any man with a tape measure in his hand who claimed to be Bamboo Ben. The Bamboo Ben I know would never use one of those - in fact he gave me crap for using a level.

Be sure to skin the toads and wash them well before cooking, all members of the genus Bufo secrete a poison with varying levels of toxicity. And I'm sure a man of your dubious reputation is already well aware of the hallucenogenic effects from licking the Colorado River Toad (Bufo alvarius). Don't bogart that toad my friend...

Buzzy I love the soaps, can you save me one of each. also, do you come home often or you are staying there most of the time. I love the fact that you don't have to bother with people, smog, freeways, crazy city life. The place looks so peaceful and serene I am jealous.

Sunsets all looked the same the last few days so I skipped taking a shot of it.


The other night, I was cleaning up this mess:

I threw a ball of string on the top of my storage cabinet and apparently scared a nesting dove off her nest. She kept bonking her head on the ceiling trying to flee. I wondered what she was up to up there, so I took a closer look...

Funny...I don't remember putting all those twigs up on the paint can:


Lone egg in the nest:


Mama was back the next morning:

She stayed up there all day, watching me carve.She finally took off when I took the nail gun out for a trial run later that day. She was back the next morning and seems to be getting used to me out there all the time.

This was pretty much her view as I knocked through the detailing of this one:


Now stained in "Rory Red."

I was thinking that the other night when Poki grabbed a big one and was carrying it around in her mouth. I kept waiting for her to start dancing in the moonlight to some Grateful Dead bootlegs, but it never happened...

#1 The soaps are for this:
tikiyaki polynesian village deluxe vacation getaway package !
Jim will have the soaps for sale separately around Oasis time. I'm just the wholesaler/manufacturer of these.
I'm selling soaps I made like this for Mojave Oasis:
Hand made Tiki Soap Bar- coconut scented cocobutter soap shaped like an Easter Island Moai Tiki Statue

#2 I think I've gone home maybe 4 times since January. I'm up here pretty much all the time.

#3 But I do have to bother with: cold, wind, heat, bugs, sand,algae, and having nothing you need close at hand when you need it.

Yeah Hiltiki, come visit me some time! you'd love it here! Hot like the valley, but empty!

I'm going to go sit on the porch and wait for something exciting to happen.I hope maybe I'll see a car go by. There's a good chance one will, it is the busy day,Saturday, here after all.
Buzzy Out!

Do you put something on your tikis to protect/prolong them since they are sitting outside?

Doves are just fancy pigeons. I would eat them before the toads.

PS Nice work
