These are the only pictures I have that were in an album; the album was mostly destroyed by Sandy. Very little got saved!! Some pics here are all on the one page from the album.
A co-worker asked me if I could build a deer for him and had wanted it in a “rearing” stance, so I built the one you see here. He is constructed from ply. That’s him in the middle of my dining room all painted up. And there’s also a shot showing me still working on him. Funny bit here…this was during Christmas time: I had to borrow my son’s truck that had an open back in order to transport this “tall” deer to my co-workers house. The whole ride there, all along the parkway, kids were waving their hands out the windows of cars trying to keep up with me and shouting “Merry Christmas Rudolph!” and “We love you, Rudolph!!” How cute was that!!
Next you will see a mailbox I made that is a copy of my house, the one I was living in at the time. It was my first home. In another picture you will see me telling my mailman how to use mailbox, explaining that the roof lifts up for easy mail insertion. He got such a kick out of that!
…and lastly a picture of my first attempt at sand sculpture.
