Default Flying Dutchman is not slowing down.

Mike sent me this picture of what he has been up to lately and also called me to say he has done a whole herd of buffalo (pics soon). He really enjoys making these small figures and giving them away to local stores and coffee shops. The folks truly enjoy getting them as well.

These Ballerina's are a bit top heavy so a substantial base was required if you see what I mean....LOL

Lets see Mike..that would be little monkeys, Giraffes, Buffalo, Ginger bread men, Ballerinas Hugs, and I know I am forgetting something. You really have been busy and at 84 there just is no slowing you down.

You sir are an inspiration. All that and fantastic customer service.

When do you have time to chase momma around the kitchen table?

If someone has great passion for what they do, it is not considered work
