Oh my gosh...hope you have a speedy recovery from the flooding. Mother Nature can indeed be cruel. Sending good vibes your way and hope you are back to carving soon.

Last year we couldn't buy a drop of rain! Texas weather: "drought interrupted by occasional flooding". We only got about 3 inches here. Speedy recovery my friend!

Wow. I grew up down the road from Houston in Victoria and I've had to do the clean-up when the home becomes a temporary swamp; best wishes for a speedy recovery and a quick return to your beautiful carving.

Wow! I feel for you guys. I hope everything dries up quickly for you.

Nature can deal some hefty blows.

Let me know if there is anything I can provide to help out.

Mahalo for sharing

Thank you all for the encouraging words. No tiki carving going on here, but we are high and dry again. And we have a pineapple in the makings!



This plant started as the top cut off a pineapple from the grocery store. That was some 5 or 6 years ago. This year it decided to fruit! Don't laugh at the cage we have around it. The last time we bought a pineapple from the nursery, a raccoon or opossum took it one night!

Whoa dang, it's been 8 months since I posted last! I guess it's time to blow the dust off this thread. There hadn't been much carving going on around here in those 8 months, but I finally started to get back in the groove a couple of weeks ago.

Way back in February or March I had started these two tikis:



I finished the one on the right last year and finally picked up on the other one. He looks like this now...



Somewhere along the way last fall I took the chain saw to a big pine log. Haven't done anything on him since then.



In fact, it's the very log pictured below that tried to escape during the food last year by floating away...



This dude is still sitting around too:




Will any of these get done any time soon? Heck, who knows!?
