  • We used to live maybe 10 miles up the road from them. Always a good trip there - massive fish tank that is feed ocean water in real time keeping it clean and fresh. Lots of fish and sharks as well. Well fed. Lots of things to see and do there. And spend cash on as I recall....

    I have two now - second one today from Joe Butler - and thanks! And one from last week, a One Eyed Santa! from Adam Whittom. Both different. I have to get my carving tree up - going to get busy on it now. I think some(last year or mine from last year) will move into the house onto the big tree....

    I got a really nice letter from the staff of Wood Carving Illustrated. Blush my face pink! I sent one from one of their books and they spotted it. The Jolly Snowman. Several got out. My wife snagged one as soon as she saw it....

    We had a long haired Chihuahua that was a real rascal. Had him for 12 years and in his last few years he started to yodel. Mom coming home from the store or gone a while. He was her dog but liked to do stuff with me but sleep with Mom. We miss him all of the time still. Suspect for years. Our...

    replied to Smokin Bibs BarBQ
    Nice smoker and scene! I love the monster cooking machines we have. We have a 25', 5 bay smoker/BBQ grill. It has stove pipes that can be on or off and use an end one for smoke to float through the first few and the last can be none and something else. Each bay connects to the other and each bay...

  • seems logical to consider the patent law a bit - e.g. don't draw Mickey Mouse just like he is and give it to someone. Can do it for your self / yours. Or simply have different eyes (who is perfect) different this and that. Music has 3-4 notes in a row. Anything we do - is not perfect like the original...

  • I would love the laser based versions. There are versions I would read and some only view. If I needed one for a bench or a 'chair' - I'd simply print that article out and know I have a perfect one next time when this one is cut out and glued or traced. That is an easy one for me. Don't print all...

    All mine have shipped. They say 3 days on the ticker-tape. So middle of next week some time. Likely Thursday and Friday for those lucky in the 'sticks' and 'wilderness'. Mine are a bit different this year. Some 2D 2 1/2D and some 3D. I say relief carving is 2.5D not quite the classical 3D. Carving...

    replied to What font is this?
    Dover publications has some font books - some hundreds of years old type. Look locally for hand lettering fonts as well. When I drove a TTY, we had one font. It was on the print head. Pin printers started getting 5x7 and 8x9 and all sorts. I wrote a program to print out printer paper wide fonts...
