So I go out to the mailbox yesterday to collect my usual junkmail and bills. But this time there was a large envelope inside the box with an Australian address. There's only one person I know from Australia, Hewey! Imagine my delight when I opened the envelope to find this:





I was so happy! This is not a copy, this is the real thing. And he just sent it to be nice. Big mahalo Hewey! How weird too that it came the day before my birthday. What a great way to kick off the weekend. This is going to look great on my tiki bar wall when it's done.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Happy Birthday mate, glad you liked it! I wanted to find out how it would survive the trip and I already had your address. Also, you wanted the "tiki delivery service" to stop by...

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is actually a copy. The original one had a "tiki bus" plate. I covered the original plate and copied it, putting Finkdaddy there (you will notice this is slightly darker). I gave her a good grillin for that weathered look, and then tore the edges off. The black base was to support it as much as a background. Size of the black backing is just under A4 size.

It's all good, copy or no. Boy, when you look closely it still doesn't look like a copy, good job. Thanks again. I love this place!
