Unreal!

A reply on the same day!

Thanks for the compliments and the conversation. The photo is one I completed a little while back. He lives at Main Street Wine Cellar in Seal Beach and was named "U-U" (Yoo-yoo) by the owner. He brings happiness, That's the idea! Sunset Mike

This guy turned out well!


I sold it to a woman named Carol for which she had given me a deposit.

The Tiki and my lift cart were both stolen from Don the Beachcombers.Carol was heartsick, and By the time I had comforted her and promised to make her a new & equal quality Tiki, person or persons unknown had returned the tiki, tarp & lift cart to the loading dock @ Don the Beachcombers!

Unbelievable!

My gratitude for the persons unknown for return of my cart and my Art! As for you, The Wrath of Karma can be a real bear unless headed off by an act of repentance. In this case, you amended the damage and did just that!

Good for you!

You're in my prayers. Never be ashamed of doing the right thing. Please think before doing this kind of thing to anyone. God isn't fooling around

"Thou shalt not steal"

Carol decide this Guys name is "Don"
After his birthplace, "Don the Beachcombers"

I found out that 'Donald' means "World Leader"

If there are any Polynesian language experts out there, please tell me how to say 'Donald' in Hawaiian.

I'm sure Carol would appreciate that!

Mahalo Clarita,

I'm glad too. That lift cart came back as well, thank God
I use that for ice carving but it helps a lot doing tiki's, moving stuff and all of that.

Grateful to God and whoever else. Life is hard enough

The bent gouges are really for digging deep in hard to get areas. (Like the mouth) They work too!

Thanks for kind compliments. That guy is sold already and going to a Walnut ranch up North as part of a decoration for a pond and waterfall. I'm sure he'll be way happy!
