Merry Christmas All!

Just a reminder, the doors open at 4:00 pm and the Tonga Hut is bringing out the tiki troop for this one. Extra help, fast line! Special menu! It's going to be a gas. See you Saturday

GROG' computer broken, so GROG have to come to public library to use computer. GROG' computer broke, GROG' glasses broke, GROG got nail in car tire, and GROG got sppeding ticket. Only five more weeks of unemployment insurance for GROG, then GROG will be just a jobless animator. So, GROG pissed-off and stressed right now.

GROG and Kirby been busy doing test glazes and firing Tong Hut AP's. Looks like it will be a two-tone piece and glossy instead of matte. Glossy looked best and got the best reaction on the first two AP's GROG and Kirby took to the Tonga Hut last Sunday.

GROG was talking with Kirby, and we agreed that the Tonga Hut/Tiki Wonderland patrons should get first dibs on this first limited edition run of Tonga Hut mugs. So, if you are on the waiting list and coming to the Tiki Wonderland on Saturday, you get first dibs. Out-of state/out-of-towners, if you're not coming to the Tonga Hut, then you will get dibs on any mugs that are left over after the event if they don't sell out. Sorry if GROG had said you were on the list to receive one, and GROG have to renig on offer, but GROG should have discussed with Kirby first. Actually, we shouldn't have had a reserve list to begin with, but live and learn.
We are planning on doing another, bigger run of hopefully about 125 in a different glaze, so if you are not able to getone of the limited edition first 25 mugs in this color, you will still have a chance of getting a Tonga Hut mug in another color.

We will have a raffle for one of the Artist Proofs (AP), so patrons at the Tiki Wonderland may have a chance of getting one that way, and maybe we will have an AP as a slient auction as well, so you might have a chance of getting one that way as well.

GROG may not be able to check the computer before the show since GROG computer broken. So, if you not hear from GROG before Saturday, then we will see you at the show. Also, nobody else gets on a waiting list for the mug from here on out since GROG can't check computer. First come, first served at the Tiki Wonderland event for those not already on the list.

All this is really Grog's art method to actually return himself to the state of mind of being in the Stone Age, living the simple life, becoming lean and mean, so he can imbue the mug with the authentic "primitive" quality. Going all the way as any consummate artist should!



Sorry to hear about your woes, Ernie. Just be glad you're not in a relationship, because as these things go, that would be on the fritz right now too!

Uh-oh... looks like I've got my marching orders...


A little late, but....
Some Tikified stockings for the fireplace mantle might be nice too.
Eric's got lots of time between now and next Saturday!

OK, Tangaroa-Ru and Dusty... Hope these fit the bill... TIki Bob santa hats...


...and Tiki Bob Christmas stockings!

Plus this 8x10 black paper drawing, nicely framed... "Silent Night, Quiet Village"

I'll have christmas card versions available too, plus some other stuff if I finish 'em in time!
See everybody at the show!

Much too early for Santa's sleigh... I'll be flying with the goodies in the more conventional way!

Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday, and sharing some holiday cheer!

Congrats Grog: Tiki Wonderland gets mentioned in this week's LA WEEKLY under LA.Weekly.com:



...but then, so far I have been unable to find any further info on that website.

We are so bummed we can't make it to the Wonderland celebration, but the good news is that we'll be attending a dear friend's wedding.

Happy Holidays to all of our tiki pals!

Stephen & Julia

WOW!!! Those mugs look FANTASTIC! Congrats, Kirby and Grog!

I just spoke to Grog a few moments ago and since he is still unable to get on line in a timely manner, he asked me to pass along this message to vendors:

Set up for the show is between 1pm and 3pm tomorrow!

See everybody at the Hut!!!
