people give me trash all the time. i guess cause i like it. when i refer to trash, it's really just something other people don't want. i don't mean old french fries. anyway, a few years ago a dear friend found some old pieces of chrome/laminate table tops(from the 5o's). she knew i owned several tables and chairs like that so she thought i could do something with the pieces. well i created this wall sculpture. (if you want to call it that) i had been planning on putting it up here for a few years and finally got around to it. so now if you come by the shop you can see him. we will call him jack banning--for now. talk amongst yourself.

who the hell is jack banning? famous golfer? famous fictional golfer? fictional golf brand? i was given this cool old game a while ago by an old friend. this game dates back to the '50's and features wooden pins that are in proportion to a golf ball (as a bowling pin is to a bowling ball). anyway, we have had fun playing it but we still can't figure out where jack banning comes into play. and why jack banning? i guess this is a mystery only the old designer of the box can shed light on. great handdone type and colors. i dig it.

since it was an abnormal high tide yesterday (6'8") at 8:20 pm, my wife, robin, our friend cindy trimnal and me decided to take my boat out and round up trash. the trash really comes out of the marsh when the water is real high. you can see in the photo three buckets(gray, blue and green), those were some of the trash floating around. in the recycling bin behind the buckets are misc cans and bottles plus a small portable toilet. folks, i cannot describe how much trash are in our waterways. so the next time you are out fishing, boating, playing or in the water, if you see a floating bottle, can or toilet, pick it up. every little bit helps. rock on.

hey people! i have been out of town recently so my updates to the shed have been few. i got a good one here. recently i have been searching for "scrambler" seat--from the old amusement ride, "the scrambler". so anyway, a friend of mine was able to turn me on to this auction company that specializes in those types of items. well because of my absence, i missed this amazing auction. dammit! the photos here are just a taste of the hundreds(and i mean hundreds) of items they had up for auction. amazing stuff!(for me anyway). if anyone out there knows of other auctions or places that sell this type of old amusement items, please contact me.
thanks. rock on.
