Thanks for all the comments, folks! I've done almost no direct work on the bar this past month due to a combination of travel and brutal heat. What little work I am doing outside involves trying to keep the plumeria, bird of paradise, hibiscus and other tropical plants planted around the pool alive during this dry spell we're in. Even with regular water and mulch, they're wilting something fierce in the afternoon sun. On the plus side, my banana plants are absolutely loving the sun and growing like gangbusters. Once the landscaping matures a little, I'll share images. The newer stuff is pretty puny at the moment.
We had a dive-in movie party the other week, showing "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World." Great tiki scenes in that one, with Dick Shawn and Barrie Chase. Mike Hooker and his wife Chelsea dropped in and treated us to some killer daiquiris, so the bar's getting good use!
