    I am happy to announce that all of the gator wars sponsors except one has gotten their plaques. I did a conformation delivery check and they were delivered to them on Oct.12, Funny how I sent them priority mail and it took 5 days no mater where they were. Al Holmes shop is only about 60 miles away from me and it still took 5 days, unreal! Now you know why everything you haved shipped frozen shows up thawd out. almost like snail mail anymore lol

    YES YOU!! You deserve a huge pat on the back for all you did for everyone. Thank You SO much Dennis. It was all of us together doing their own part to make this what it was for EVERYONE. I truly do believe everyone got more BANG for their Buck that they came expecting.

    Thanks guys and gals, but it was my wifes idea to do the plaques. she desighned them for us. It did sort of put the iceing on the cake so to speak of. I think it was great that everybody sighned each others plaques so we will always remember who was there, but I don't think I could ever forget any of ya'll and the fun we had. I almost didn't get to come but looking back it was one of my best moves. who could ask for a better family as there is in the taxidermy world to spend a weekend with as we did.

    Good Luck, although I haven't done it, I watched as Tom and Dan painted these two here at my shop. You've got alot of painting to do on that Big Fella. One thing I noticed when they painted these, outside where the sun shines on it is your best light. Have fun.

    Tim I don't have the nerve to start painting the big one yet. Besides the tail is still a little wet. I am working on the small one to get some practice. I decided to modpodge the whole gater because I had a lot of missing scales. I also like that it gives the skin a fleshier look. It is alittle too shiny but I will address that later. I think I can use a semigloss finish when I am done. The whole thing is an experiment. That is one of the things I learned from Tom" Don't be afraid to try nonconventional methods." We'll see. I wish everyone luck as they paint there gators...I can see this is going to be a blast! Post your pictures. And Tim I hope my gator turns out as nice as the two you have in your showroom. Your showroom is a vacation destinatiion in my book! :D

    what the hell is that suppose to mean LMAO you told me to paint it so I did. LOL I may work over a few more spots once things settle down a bit, but I haven't been in the shop much except when I have to.

    That means if there was going to be someone from the class to do it first, I would have bet it would have been you to do it and I would have been right... ;) ;D
