It is fall here in Portland, OR. Some trees have turned red just in the last week. The mushrooms have come up in my front yard where I had brought in some garden soil to fill in a hole. They are not the edible kind so I disposed of these after the picture was taken.



I finished slabbing some obsidian for a "napper" (sp?). He works these pieces into arrow heads.



I am in the process of lining up more shows to sell in. I will be starting close to home first - in Oregon and Washington- because of the price of diesel.



Most of my local customers want their thunder eggs cut and polished. I also get some other requests also.  I guess usually, I can't tell what a customer might be requesting when they call.



I have been working in our yard. The waterfall and pond area are in the worst shape. It all had to be redone and that has been a major task since I had never worked on one before. The old waterfall that was here when we moved in had been set up on a plywood frame. It had rotted and so the whole thing needed redoing. It has been a job!



I hope to get the basic part of it done this fall and then I will put the finishing touches on it in the spring.



I had some beautiful cabs that I finished. I have a lot more to "refinish" from the estate I purchased.



I am working on my site - adding a page of other items. These will be up soon.



So much for now.
