Here are some new pics!

I carved this guy several years ago. He sits next to the volcano waterfall now.


The bar with some amazing Bosko art and some stool that I made/ carved. Oh, and our dog, Astro.


About three years ago, I planted a lime tree specifically for the purpose of use in maitais. With that tree starting to produce fruit now, we decided to get a mint plant. Actually AtomicTikiPunk and his wife gave this plant to us... The mint is quickly taking over the whole damned yard! Grows like crazy!! If only the lime tree would do the same!


Some trim that I carved for the walls. Very much in the style of Witco/ Bosko.

Looking great, Spike...is the waterfall flowing yet?
it looks like you need to have a party to use up that mint
before it tries to strangle you!

You guy's were rockin Saturday.

The mint plant will start to take over. At the community garden I garden at they won't let us plant any kind of mint. Their roots are actually rhizomes so you could start to see mint popping up 10 feet away. Keep it contained in a pot and watch out because the rhizomes will sneak through the drain hole in the bottom. It's still a great plant to have.

Thanks for the info on the mint, Lori. I'll have to stop the free roaming bush before it gets out of control!

Yeah, ATP, the waterfall works great now. After silicone-ing and re-cementing it like three times, it's now watertight and runs great. Very soothing sound and that table next to it has now become my primary songwriting inspiration spot. Stoked!



Maybe I can start selling mint at the DtB International Marketplace??
That strangling thing was super funny. It DOES look pretty wild!

What happens at Dons on 10/29, Kahuna?

Yes, mint will take over everything. I planted one little plant last year and this year I have had 2 mojito fests where I invite everyone over just to use some of the mint that I had to cut down cause they were blocking sunlight to my peppers. I like having a lot of mint, but I don't know what next year will hold.

Also, it lasts longer after you pick it if you do not wash it. You can also refridgerate it or freeze it for quite awhile.

As for your lime tree, My lime tree likes a lot of water and fertilizer. I fertilize it once a month and try to water it as close to everyday as I can. If you keep it up you will have more limes than you can use, but it will take a few years.

Hope that helps out a little.

Thanks for the inspiration Spike.

I am really getting an itch to convert a room in my house to a Tiki room and I just don't know where to start.

Oh, yeah. The first step is to convince Mrs. Chippy. Then I have to figure out where to start.

Oh... gotcha ATP. Maybe we'll be able to come by.

Glad I can help to inspire, Chippy. Just trying to make our space as cool as possible. I love this section of TC too. Tons of inspiration!!

Rum Barrels, last night, in The Breezeway!
First try at making them and with 13 ingredients, it took a LONG time... But they turned out super tasty!

Picked up a new, vintage 1960's faux bamboo patio set for The Breezeway. Got it in Palm Springs, where the orchards of amazing 1940s-1960s stuff are lush and bountiful and ripe for the picking.
The set really changes the look of the space. Much better and more appropriate than our previous oversized tulip table.
