Thanks Al for all the stories about all the great carvings and artwork, and about how you got to where you are today.

GROG's favorite story was about how you met Bamboo Ben when you were a starving artist and had to supplement your income as a male gigilo and Bamboo Ben hit on you because you had long hair and he thought you were a transvestite prostitute.
Actually, GROG had alot to drink at the Tiki Ti, so that might not be the actual story you told, but that's how GROG remembers it.

Thanks for GROG's Tiki #1 mug. It is incredible and is GROG's favorite mug.

Al!
Thanks again for the GREAT walk thru yeaterday!That must've been a good two hours! The Incredible stories and explanations made it feel like ten minutes! Anyone who truly wants to
appreciate and understand your art and career should've been there! These days there aren't many artists with so much talent,integrity,and openness! You need a "Book of Tiki" sized Crazy Al book to contain all of your works and stories! Good Job

Back to your CAVE-MAN!!!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Couldn't make it to this one so I figured I'd give ol' C'Al a call around 5-ish, just as he's gettin into it ( that's what friends are for right?) and low and behold he answered his cell!!!! Herd about 3 minute of him talking and it sounded Right On!! Then my stupid cell lost the signal. "Can you hear me now?? YA Right!!!"

Did anyone film the walk through???

C'Al rocks!

Are you SURE you lost the signal? My recollection may be a bit hazy,but I think I saw GROG hang it up! He's a total Luddite and hates any kind of technology,being a caveman and all! So much for Bamboo tele-conferencing in the future! Didn't see anyone filming and Al made us swear a Blood-Oath we wouldn't share the secrets we had been bestowed....would've loved to have seen you there-History in the Making! At Ease, Private!

What a crazy busy fun weekend I had! Mahalo Al for a Great walk through on Sat. it was the highlight of the weekend. Seeing all your works again with your explanations & anecdotes made it even BETTER the second time around. I really enjoyed hearing about your High School, Art Center years, Tiki Tones & the Op shorts! I have a new found appreciation for sculpting & carving. Thanks again also for bringing my mugs #1 & 2. It was also cool meeting some of the TC'ers. Sorry I missed seeing you all at Tiki Ti's I was in & out for a cocktail & a
t-shirt before you all got there. Hip 'lil joint though!.. Be well....HiPHiPaHuLA!!
