Oh man...there was cake carving too!!! Now I'm even more bummed. Damn...I was wrecked after vending at a hot rod show all Saturday so I just huddled up on the couch and watched football. Now that the show season is done, I can sort myself out and get back on track. Great looking stuff guys!

Mieko and crew...that was a REALLY nice time! 2 years...wow!

Wonderful to see Ona, Moki and the new baby kiddo.

Sorry, I had my camera there and didn't take one shot.

Peace.

Brother, you don't know the half of it! I think Bowana really broke some new ground yesterday. Meiko you are a wonderful host. Thank you so much... but check your freezer.

Had a great time but also decided not to be the shutterbug this time. Only three chizlers this time. It's exciting to see so many mediums being explored but was happy to have Buzzy and Erik breathing fire down my neck to keep my mallet moving.

I feel very blessed that Buzzy showed and CARVED.

Sure I've heard the legends of a sunglassed Buzzy sitting through entire chops with arms folded. I think somebody even held a mirror under his nose once to make sure he was still breathing, but now I understand... If YOU carved as fast and continuously as Buzzy you'd relish the break too! Like the terminator when Buzz is in work mode he just doesn't stop. Particularly inspiring.

Augie Marquis was a suprise guest carver strapped to his handlers like some sort of giggly Master Blaster. I imagined he was going to carve by controlling Moki's hands with baby-talk verbal commands, but he ended up just loafing around with Ona drinking rootbeer floats.

Happy Birthay Chop Baby! Welcome to the Terrible Two's!

Really bummed to have missed this one, but was just way too destroyed, man. Who's doing the Baby New Year Chop? You know, we're damned lucky........in some parts of the country, people are knee-deep in snow, but we're outside, chopping tikis in short-sleeves. Now all we need are some decent sports teams(like I care anyways), and we're set!

I was just pretending to be asleep during that whole mirror incident. When I saw Bowana trying to stick that mirror under my nose, I naturally thought he was trying to offer me a rail of coke. I thought it would be more polite to feign sleep than to refuse his generous offer.

Now you really understand....and you know why Bowana works so fast!
Buzzy Out!

Oh well, ya snooze, ya loose, my sleeping friend! "Buzzy Out" takes on a whole new meaning!
Now that Hank turned me on to the fine art of corn dog carvin', I'm faster than a speeding bullet.

Wow! What an amazing day! Had a great time hanging out with many talented tiki artists (Bowana's tikified corndog was awesome!), and to top it all off, I got to drive away with a car-full of great tiki art for the show this Friday...

Then over to Royal Hawaiian for the mug release (saw Jeff BigTikiDude on our way out of there "Hi Jeff!") and inexplicably ended up a Kona for Mai Tais and Lapu Lapus on our way back to LA... well, actually quite explicable... it was sort of on the way... and Mai Tais...

One of our most tiki-packed days ever!

Mahalo Mieko!
