Hot & Muggy
This month of August has made it impossible to spend any carving time in an unconditioned work shop so, again I have moved my carving time back into the house where it is air conditioned. With a carving week at Wild Acres Retreat almost among us I will be looking forward to some cooler carving weather by attending this year’s Retreat.
Happy Independence Day
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July with fireworks and sparklers celebrating our 241st year since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
With July starting our second half of the year, it also happens to be the first of several hottest months of the year. With this weather being so hot and humid, it will give you time to stay inside and sharpen those carving skills and give you the opportunity to finish that carving for the clubs upcoming show.
The Magic Month of June
The month of June reminds us that the year is half over and we still have another half year to go. The items we procrastinated on doing in the first six months are now looking us in the eye. We need to finish up those items so we can get on with the next six months of “Carvings for the Show”. So, what I’m trying to say is, we have eight months to complete our carvings for the 2018 Showcase. Remember, the Show Theme is “Anything Nautical” and we have two new Prize Money Categories which are “Cottonwood Bark” and “Animals”. This is the Magic Month so get started on those carvings.
