The stork looking birds got to most of the fish before I did. I only caught 3 real small bass. We had a couple problems while draining the lake so we didn;t get the fish like we should have. Stupid birds...

Buzzy Out!

Yesterday's sunset:

Today's:



I was just about to get to carving on Friday when a stupid bee stung me on the hand. It swelled up a lot so I took a rest until saturday morning. Then I went out to the shop and made another larger fish club:

This style was used on larger fish, like the bullfish, which were very prevalent in the rivers there. The pointy parts behind the blade were used to dig into either the gills or jaw to help drag the heavy fish to shore


Here are the recent clubs, paddles, and fish axes all together:


The second fish axe used the last of my wood in stock, but I still had some leftover irregular pieces that I could burn through. I wanted to make some different sized pairs of Moais out of the scraps:


Cut them all out, and close to end of routin them, I had one mess up that went to the range to get shot up:

Feels good shooting up mistakes. Turns a bad to good. Positive transformation...

By the end of the day, I did manage to finish a Papa, Mama, and baby size set of Maois in this color:


and I did two sets in another color with one little leftover guy:


Todays output:

I think they're about 11, 9, and 7 inches tall.

Yo Jonesey! Stick around for a while. All kinds of mysteries and adventures to uncover and unfold out here. You came back at a good time. Not much new action here before a few weeks ago, so you don't have to back so many pages to catch up.

The coolest thing I ever saw was a copy the world's smallest bible. A junior high substitute teacher named Werle Cox would carry it around in his pocket. It was a little clear plastic card with dots on it. Each dot, he would explain, was two pages of the bible, and you needed a microscope to actually read it.

Yeah, but you can't gut a fish with it!

I think now a teacher would be cruxified for flashing a Bible around in a public school.

Also, I don't believe that it was for real. He just bought a little tiny book and dotted it wit a ball point pen. I could make one too.

"Oh, you don't happen to have an electron microscope on you? Too bad, you can't read my book."

Yeah, sure!

I had to concentrate on Mojave Oasis II facilities matters for a week or so, but I finally got caught up enough to sneak into the shop for a couple days this week.

Before I get to that work, a sunset from one of those days:


First piece was "inspired" by the tribes of the Lower Strickland Mountains in PNG. It's kind of a rudder/paddle. The river had quick parts of rapids that only needed steering, so they fashioned these paddles for slowing down by creating some drag, or using it to turn with as a type of hand held rudder:


I guess the shape produced enough drag to slow the boat, but not enough to rip it out of the pilot's hand

I thought they were ceremonial/decorative until I read the caption next to the picture that said they actually used them shaped like this.


Next day sunset,(yesterday):


Upper Strickland Navigator's paddle:

A lot of the paddles are actually used like maps. Not exact "this is what the river looks like" but kind of like "two bumps and a long arm off the center design"="two turns of the river after camp and there's a tributary" If there were markings on the part that meant tributary, then that meant there was stuff down the river. If it was plain, it meant nothing there. The guy on the back of the boat would have the marked paddle. Kind of like the modern outrigger guy with megaphone in charge.



and others were just decorative and didn't mean a thing outside of the ceremonial realm

Meaningless, just like all my stuff...

Our other favorite sub from that district was the WWII vet Mr Farrington. He brought different caliber of bullets to show us. He told us that the .45 was invented to stop/kill the "Curly Qs" during the Zulu wars. The bullets alone would cause a district wide lockdown these days. "Curly Q's" said by a teacher= Hello Al Sharpton with 20 buses of professional protestors at the school gates. And, he wouldn;t be crucified these days, because that does have its traditions in the religious realm, and there is that whole freedom from religion thing in the public realm

He had a little hand held stamp magnifier that he'd let you peer into. I saw it once, and it looked like a bunch of rectangles with something in them, like lines of text, laid out bible column style.
