Very spiffy looking there Mike! I think the picture is missing a tiki drink in your hand though.

Mike you look as hot as the mugs that are in my kiln right now! Soon you'll be holding your mugs and wearing your necklace to match. Oh, another photo op. I stole the photo for my MDM file.

Dan said thank you so much for the fire twirling card for his birthday. Very cool, no hot, no cool, oh Mike.

Cheers, Wendy

Chris & Tiger, thank you
Dawn, pics posted
Wendy, I'm worried what you might do with that photo. Pics have a history on TC of resurfacing looking something like this


(thanks ATP )

Summer is bearing down fast on the desert ~ high 80s this week and we'll probably reach 100 sometime next month. I had built a faux bamboo frame and reed fence shade on the Lanai so I could grow some semi-tropical plants but it was starting to look pretty shabby. Plus the reed fence didn't really block enough sunlight.


So I built a mini A-frame with some bamboo fencing shade.





Do the beams with a carved figure have a name?

I want to put a netted float hummingbird feeder up, so I did a search on TC: the home of all things tiki. Sure enough, Kohl's sold some about 5 years ago.


A TC member bought up a bunch of them, I'm checking with him to see if he has any left. Otherwise I'll have to improvise ~ maybe a netted rum bottle feeder with rum colored nectar. I'm sure that will get me in trouble with PETA and the ASPCA

Hi Mike, that sure reminds me of your Mohave tent. Both are super. Wendy

I like the hut! I have an old wooden swing frame that would work perfectly for that - hmmmm!

You have the kind of great ideas that help other people have great ideas. I'm filing this one away, MDM.

Super cool Mike, I am liking the Feeder Float also, Actually a very cool idea, those would
look sharp hanging in the trees.

Chris, Sandra, Amy - thank you very much
Wendy - I had to "cannibalize" the tent to make the A-frame
Tom - that frame isn't too sturdy and may not be up to code, you probable better not follow my plan if you want it to support you!
Greg - you should build you one, pretty quick and easy.

ATP - the float hummingbird feeder is bust for now. My Kohl's connection didn't come through and I wasn't able to find a suitable replacement. So I netted a Kraken bottle instead. The hardest part was finishing off the half bottle of Kraken but I manned up and took one for the team this afternoon I masked off the labels and gave them a couple of coats of spar varnish, it gave them a bit of an antique look and I'm hoping it will protect the labels from the elements some. The feeder part is a rubber cork with a hole drilled in it and a piece of 1/4 copper tubing. I used a 1 inch stopper but it's a bit too big, I may go back to Lowe's and see if I can find one size smaller. I had some Wilton black paste food coloring to make the nectar dark, but it's actually a dark blue and looks a little funny. I'll pick up some brown some day and see if that's better.

Tomorrow I'll see if I can get a better daytime pic. If I can get my SLR working (I dropped it ) maybe I can get a pic with a hummingbird feeding.
