Awww, look at that Motley Crew!

Yep Buzz, I have wireless. It's ok Meiko...we'll miss you! But, if you show up in the morning for a second, you will still be able to say that you've made it to every Chop...right? There's only a few that can say this...Kate might be the only other?

These are crappy pictures (colors are more vibrant), but this just came out of the kiln today..."The Bird 2"...this one is all lined up to go to Hiphipahula's home...if she likes him.

PS: Buzzy, can you bring your Robi plainer?

That picture is great. I forgot Babalu actually came to Mieko's first Chop. So did Aaron! (First in the phonebook.) And Buzz!

4WD looks kind of like a zombie, but that could be the jpeg encoding. Or maybe he's a zombie.

Hey, the 'Bird 2' picture IS crappy! The colors are WAY better, and that ain't nearly as crazy as the glazing went. You'll see.....

Hey HipHip,

Glad to have you on a Chop thread! My camera sucks, or perhaps it's the guy taking the pictures that sucks...Hopefully, we'll get a few good shots of mugs today.

Next, we need to get you to a Chop

That's a fine idea. You should come on down, Kelly.

I'm running a little late this morning. I'm gonna start packing up the car now. See you all in a few hours.

6:55 am is LATE?!

Hiphophuplulu - GRAB that one before it goes, it's amazing. It has like 6 glazed eye color circles, one within the other! And the whole bird head is hand carved, one-of-a-kind! It's today's TOP PICK!

Kate & Babs are right, try to make it down!

Here's how Kate does it, she told me this last time:

1. Gas up and pack the car the night before.
2. Get to sleep early, like 8:00 pm.
3. Pre-make a pot of coffee on a timer that starts at 6:30am.
4. Put 3 alarm clocks around your bed, all set for 6:35 am.
5. Have a detailed Google map of Babalu's Hideaway waiting on the right passenger seat.
6. Don't shower. Don't look in the mirror at all.
7. Think Mug. Think Chop.
8. Break all the speed laws.
9. Get there before Buzzy every time.

Close.

3. Make sure there's Vanilla Coke Zero in the fridge. (Coffee is icky.)
4. Just one very annoying alarm clock set for 5:30 am which allows time for...
6. Take shower. Wear jeans to avoid having to shave legs.

Other than that, you got it exactly right.

It was a fabulous Chop. Sorry you couldn't make it, Cam.

Well, that was a banner day! It's hard to believe that we have done this every month for a whole year now...just great!

I have made some wonderful friends. You have all been great inspiration to me.

Ok, on with day....lot's of pictures here...

Kate was the first here...Kate is one die hard, hard core chopper...Go Kate, Go!


Next, Meiko showed up dressed for the ball. Thanks for dropping the pop off...Dave's bringing it back to you.


Then Wheeler showed up with this 8 footer in tow...he is dropping this commission off today...hope it got to it's new home alright. Ok, it might be just me, but doesn't this guy looks like he has a cool skyline headdress! It reminds me of Chicago :-) The skyline series...Bill?





Hi and Cheeky are the bells of the ball - for sure!



Don't forget the Bird...he's all about party lights...the kid takes after his grandpa.






Didn't get a great shoot of Bowana, but did get some close ups of his latest...This cat is a top, top shelf carver gang!








Billy made it...late, but he made it. He lost his keys if any of you find them in your stuff. Dude, you left 3 chisels here. Dang Crud boy, you has lost some weight! Good picture.



OK, somebody help me with names here...Cindy and ??Rex..no that's not it?? Anyway, this handsome couple was the hit of the day. They are hooked! They are good! You two smoke!




Buzzy...Buzzy and Simon ate hot dogs! After that, they ate some more.




Yes, hot dogs are a hit.


Dave and Maria chow down.


Buzz cuttings


Clay studio...one side, and the other...




Back yard., and some invading ants




Some Chop Chop Mugs...

The Bird 2










Little Lost Tiki's mug...this one's juicy!




his one's traveling to a Jonesey...wished I took better pictures. I like this one.


Kate drinking kava out of her birthday mug...HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE!!!




Chopper mugs that were picked from the bunch today...good choices...going to good homes all. Bill you forgot yours.


Well that's it for todays Chop. Thanks gang!

LOL, I'm with Kate, Coffee sucks unless it has 1/4 cup of Carmel in and is topped with whipped cream. Ahhh Diet Coke, not Pepsi! & Yes on the bird! Lets see.... look at how cute the girls are in jeans, don't think I have ever seen you girlie's in jeans before! Me, chop! HA! I can't draw or paint, wait, tools... tools that could hurt...ummmmm.... I might be able to do that after all I am (was) musical I could maybe whistle while you all work or change the station on the radio??

Thanks Rick and everybody for another great Chop. That kava did nothing for me even though I slammed 2 coffee cups full. Hmmm.... maybe I really am a robot.


Happy birthday Kate,and thanks for the tip on the Halloween stories. What I read on that thread scared the daylights out of me last night. Read if you dare,
