You're dang right about the face mask. As a respiratory therapist aka the boss you know what happens to those who abuse their lungs. Tell Goober to kiss and make it better.

That's an awesome ship there mate. I loved living in trees as a kid but I never had a tree house, just favorite limbs. You are a fine grampa.

Your skull turned out really well. Thanks for all the entertainment. We are resting up after our trip and tomorrow I'll give hang10tiki his fix.

Cheers, Wendy

Wow...you are crazy energetic. When I fell last year and broke my wrist, I didn't know that by twisting when I hit the floor I had broken a rib...OMG...that is some crazy pain there...do be careful.

Get help when you start to raise that ship so you don't do more skeletal havoc on your bod!!! Those kids have an awesome Gpa.

Hey the pirate bottle turned out great. ARGH!!!

Way to go Mike. Love the plans for the Treeboat. Wish I had had something like that growing up. You one great pawpaw. Hate to hear about the ribs, but take it easy and take care of yourself.

Love the look though. At first I thought maybe you had made another costume to wear. Perhaps Cobra Commander from GIJoe?

Hay MikE,

Sharp saw.
Shoes?

But then again, you would make a kool one with all the xtras
(Compass, hidden rum compartment, bottle opener, etc)

G'day Mike,

I must say you look great as Hannibal Lector but i know Wendy will be mad at me also as i very rarely wear a dust mask either. I have to agree with hang10tiki though, bare feet and a circular saw are probably not the best combination. I want to hang out with you again at another TO. Please be careful, you're no spring chicken anymore.


Can't wait to see the Pirate Ship finished and all your recent work has been great, i really liked the Trader Vic/Vamptiki Lounge bottle.

Cheers
Robbie

No, no no Mike! Yer supposed to crack a bottle of champagne (or in this case rum) over the ship, not yer ribs!

Yer grandson is lucky to have such a wonderful paw paw.

The pirate bottle turned out ARRRRRsome!

The rib is doing much better, thank you Treeboat - I like that Dale. Jon & Swizz, if you didn't like me operating the Skilsaw with no shoes it's a real good thing you didn't see me with the chainsaw! Wendy, Marlene & Tiger I hope I'm being a good Poppi ~ I'm not sure what kind of a grandparent builds a treehouse for a 3 year old!

I went to
Buzzy's Chop yesterday and had a great time, we ate all kinds of deep fried stuff. I made a new blank bottle with full intentions of turning it into a PNG mask Saturday. But when I packed it up Friday night I noticed it was a bit odd shaped. The I noticed it was shaped a lot like this



The Ambum Stone was found in the highlands of PNG and is thought to be one of the oldest known examples of Oceanic art. It is thought to have been made around 1500 BC, making it about 3500 years old. I want to see if I can make a bottle to look like it, I still have a long way to go.



TREEBOAT ERECTION! Yes, you read that right ~ we lifted the treeboat 5 feet up into the tree this morning with no problems. Nothing exciting to take a picture of yet, maybe later this week. But I do have a pic of the treeboat fasteners. Back in the Paleo days, we just nailed 2x4s to the trees and built a platform. Now we are much more sophisticated in the safety of our youngsters and in the health of our trees. It turns out that nailing several places in close proximity kills a large area of the tree. And having the treehouse butt up against the tree traps debris and moisture, encouraging insects and rot. The modern technology is called a "perch", one large bolt (3/4 or 1 inch x 10 inches) into the tree that the frame of the treehouse sets on. This treeboat sits on three perches set in 3 different trees. It will also have some 4x4 "legs"



One really cool thing I noticed today is that the treeboat creaks as the trees move under it sounding like a real wooden boat!

Loving the creaky treeboat and I think a very good Poppi builds a treeboat for a 3 years old.

Bottle looking really cool. I can't wait to see what you come up with for a finish for that one. If we know you it will be different and creative.

- Dale

Dale, Wendy & Hale - thank you so much. I have been busy working on my Pirate Ship Tree House (link in my signature below) so I haven't done any ceramic work. Wendy, I see what you mean by looking at pictures of your work. When I looked at the picture of the Ambum Stone bottle above I realized that the arms are all wrong. I probably better spray that and re-wrap it so it would be in workable condition when I get back to it. I have 2 non-tiki commissions that I promised to people, I need to get crackin' on those this week. And I have some projects for a "Year of the Dragon" themed $100/plate event for the hospital I need to work on real soon too. Looks like no Tiki mud under my fingernails for at least a couple of weeks

Captain Goobie and first mate Tater Tot should be very proud of such a fine vessel. Arrrr!

Seriously, my dad built me a couple of awesome playhouses over the years: places where I could go and be alone and just be a kid, or invite friends over and share in the joy of the place. Those have always stuck in my mind as the most fantastic gifts you can give a kid, and I had many a joyful moment in my playhouse refuges. It is a gift of joy that continues to give for many years, you are giving them something more special than you probably even realize. To give a kid such a place plants the seeds of imagination and independence. You are being a first rate Paw Paw in giving them this.
