This is the best news in a long, long time.

I never felt it proper to comment, regarding your injuries, but I have thought
about you many, many times and sent you my very best wishes, in my own small way.

Best of luck Mr. Pupu Pants!!

Yes indeed...nothing like a Tiki project at home to keep you motivated in life. Jose looks maaahvulus. Recovery from accidents is a struggle, but you can do it and everyone is rooting for you. Like they say "when life gives you lemons, make lemoncello!!!"

Thanks so much Guys. Always makes me feel better to visit Tiki Central.


UPDATE: it sold on eBay today for $338. To be honest - a bit disappointing. The last two or three of these I saw sell on eBay went in the $500 -$700 range -- And none of those came with any extras. Dang. My fault - should have had a reserve.

You guys are the best

Here's that Nose art sign I was talking about. Not sure where it will hang yet. Possibly on the Ceiling above the bar.
I'll be posting more stuff very soon.



FYI - I'm selling some extra stuff on eBay throughout this week if any of you are interested (Mostly Hawaiiana stuff)

XOXO

Oooh...that reminds me of a company back in the (cough!) 80s that would customize leather fighter & bomber jackets with the Nose Art of your choice. I remember it was brutally expensive, $400 or so back when that was real money. But it'd be excellent to have!

Hello my friends!
I sure have missed you guys One way or another, Hula Sue's shall be 'completed'. I can't thank you enough for all the words of support. It seriously means a lot. I've been back at work in the bar and finishing up some projects. One of the projects is a custom base for my Enchanted Tiki Room bird statue. The base that comes with it is pretty basic and contemporary looking and not very Tiki Room-like. (I never understood why they mounted such an amazingly cool statue on something so plain.
To jazz it up a bit I built a small crate that covers the base and added a bamboo pole to cover the black support rod. I also made a shell nameplate like the one Jose has in Disneyland. Somehow, I ended up with two of these birds -- so I made custom bases for both.

I've decided to keep only one of the birds so I actually put the other one with it's new custom extra base up for auction on eBay if any of you are interested.
Here's what it looks like:




and here's the link to the one on eBay:

I have more to post very soon. You guys are the best. Thanks again
