Many last minute (and not so last minute) orders. Dave was last minute. He didn’t mind, though, getting his frog after Christmas. So, that worked out. He gets his frog next week. He wanted a frog like the one I made that’s in a restaurant called Coastal Flats. I had an apprentice help me with the crating. I have a new apprentice. His name is Lorenzo. I think he’s going to work out very well. My old apprentice, Todd Miller, AKA Toddzilla, moved to Arizona with his mom who plans to help him sell his frogs, the frog sculptures he learned from me how to build. We plan to work together in the future. Our relationship is not over. Todd worked for me for a little over a year, and in that time, he developed his frog making skills. He’s an artist. I prefer to work with artists even though as artists, we all have the capacity to be somewhat prima donnas.
Last minute Christmas has got me bushed. I got Kim’s frog to her, thankfully, in time for Christmas Eve. It is a guitar frog for her husband. A very thoughtful gift.
Merrry Christmas! beau
