    The pics are fine and so is the carving. What do the letters say?

                  Thanks and certainly very appropriate words. I'm sure it will be appreciated!

                        Pretty darn cool! That lettering is very well done. If I tried that, I would ruin it.

                          That's a pretty nice little pig Blinky. So, I've gotta ask. How did you manage to get the curls in that little tail? If you carved it, well sir, you've got mighty steady hands, great eye sight and a bucket load of patience.

                            Toy Carver,
                            glad you like him and I agree, but feel that Happiness and Health would be better

                            G'day Ed,
                            thanks for looking, and I hope all goes well for you and yours......

                            Thanks Terry,
                            I just hope it passes inspection, I believe just a small mistake can alter the meaning completely.

                            Tinwood,
                            Thanks for your interest but I must confess the tail was formed from tightly twisted cord then soaked with super glue,
                            It could be carved but would always be a risk because of short grain etc.

                            Thanks again everyone and Regards
                            John
