Any pics??????

That was a perfect wrap-up to my mom's trip!

Billy was a perfect gentleman, and Mieko showed her the ropes.

Having a killer Chop starts with the food!







Meiko had a great day!





Andy (Tmec) showed up today...We were all salivating and flappy lipped over this intense paddle...man, the carved ends on this paddle send shivers up my spine!







A man named Monkey was buzzing around like crazy...If any of you 2D guys out there in TC land want a custom frame for your work...Monkeyman is the dude to speak with.









Wheeler is always in a good mood...The Host with the most!



Billy + Kava = No back pain.



Buzzy hammered...



Kate glazes mugs that she built a few Chops ago.



This pretty girl (sorry forgot names) and her boyfriend (likes Kava) were a huge hit at the Chop today.





H2O and Gunner carving big...



The Skinny Dog Clan was there to carve! You two are the best!





Girls having fun! Lynnie thanks for making all that GREAT food!



Sharpening Demo.



Cujo...



ROCK THE CHOP!

Thank you Bill and Lynnie for such fantastic hospitality. I havent had a lunch spread like that in a long time. It was great.

Thanks also to all the Chop Chop crew for letting me hang for the day making a mess with my router.

I made a real dent in my current frame project and had some great conversation too.

Looking forward to attending again sometime.

"Babs, the reluctant bodhisatva of tiki"
Exactly!

And I knew Billy was going to become the Kava Mixologist. He's dedicated and motivated with new drugs in hand. We gotta get more Kava! - that's the last of the big pure stuff baggie.

That paddle was freaky amazing. It looked like 62 really talented German elves did it as their once-a-year present to Santa.

Hey there

Thanks to all we had a great day at the Chop.

Although my butt still hurts from perching on that stump for a couple of hours.

Thanks Lennie and Bill for the wonderful hospitality as always.

I have set up my chop area here at home so I can finish my tiki head (still just a mouth) and bring him back to show y'all.

I love day camp for grown-ups.

Jen (and Scott my Chop widow)

It was a fabulous day. I was so glad that I was able to get all of my mugs and shots glazed. This has been quite the learning experience. Can't wait to see how they look after they've been fired. Thanks Rick for letting me use your glaze stock. I think I owe you a jar of Peacock.

Looks like I can't make the luau next month, so would anyone be up to doing a smaller Chop on the 10th?

I'm planning on having a small yard sale at my house on Saturday morning and was going to carve whilst I sell stuff. I was only planning on selling junk until about 10-1030 and then I was going to carve out back the rest of the day, so...

Visiting Artist Day at the House of Buzz on saturday the 10th.

Come on by one and all if you would care to carve with me at my house on Saturday. I have a couple of the usual suspects already confirmed, and am now making this invitation to the rest of y'all.

WARNING:
If you should decide to attend, you must be sure that understand the following: Prepare yourself for a day at the House of Buzz like you would for a weekend trip to Baja in 1990. Resources in the House of Buzz are akin to those in sunny Mexico before the Presedente Fox revolucion. Therefore, you must be able to be completely self sustainable for the entire duration of your stay, and bring all your necessary provisions with you. This may include some or all of the following: Food, water, emergency clothes and shelter, camp shower, first aid supplies, shade, chairs, ice, utensils, toiletries, water, and in only the most extreme of circumstances, a diesel generator. And just like Mexico, just because it looks like food, doesn't mean you can eat it, so if you find some food while you are here, please do not eat it. That goes for the condiments too.

Buzzy Out!

Excellent! I'll swing by for a bit, and I just got back from Baja, so I'm totally ready for camping.
