    Tohner,

    Your talent never ceases to amaze.

    Is that light ac or dc? Prob easier to change a AA battery,but could not see a cord.

    Keep on truckin’.

      Thanks James,
      Yea it’s a battery, I even thought about maybe a candle but with the two little terrorist running around in the house I figured it wouldn’t be prudent(Dana Carvey)

      Peace and Chicken Grease.

    Wait, you carved a left hand or you carved with your left hand? Either way, looks cool.

    Also, I’ve been reading Lloyd’s book. You’re in great company, and you’re right that it only furthers my desire for a tricked out camper van. Sadly, I don’t have your woodworking skills, so I’ll have to buy one that’s ready-made. Someday.

      Well it’s funny, I thought that it was my first left hand carving and then I realized the other three including yours (I think) was a lefty. Strange I don’t think I ever consciously decided to carve a left I suppose it may be due to the fact that my right hand is usually the dominant carver and since I don’t really draw anything on the wood I use my left as a visual reference.

      Yea Lloyd’s book is so incredibly dense with so many cool people doing cool shit and every time I pick it up I randomly open it,I love books that can be digested slowly.

The good life.

Case study: become one with the hummingbirds. Day 7: the hummingbirds have seemed to accepted me into their tribe. They no longer fear me...instead I have begun to make sense of their language. Even delved into their societal behaviors. A Hierarchy rule of law exists here where sugar is life. They don’t seem to be bothered by the trivialities of life. They seem only to be focused on sugar. An obsession that has turned into almost a mediation all based around their need for the almighty sugar. Their wings seem to beat like drums and between the beats you can hear the whale/dolphin like noises they emit and if you listen close enough you can hear.....Sugar.........Sugar.........Sugar. Sorry.....I have to go now they seem to be questioning my attention to this phone...later.... #hummingbird #ecology#naturalist#dontbesoserious #lifeisshort#getoutside#wildlifebiology
Song of the hummingbird. Slow motion captured them talking and it sounded strangely like humpback whales. This is way better then whatever is on tv. Trust me. #hummingbird #naturalist#outdoorsman#lifeisbetteroutside #lookingoutmybackdoor#brenham
