Baby fishing is an entertaining sport, particularly when light tackle is used, and the larger babies often put up spectacular fights. Babies love vienna sausages and cookies, but will often just swallow those types of baits and spit out your line! Artificial baits will hold up better. But beware! Even though you act as a responsible fisherman and always, always “catch and release”, your Mama will probably cut your season short!

They didn’t have such items as pacifiers when I was a child; heck, I’m not sure that bottles were even that common. But my daughter had one and I suspect I may have tried this, at least with a hand line, until my wife caught me! It’s hard to remember exactly. But my daughter did love to fish, despite her dad with the strange sense of humor! Thanks for looking!

Wonderful carving! I cracks me up because I used to do the same thing, only with a pacifier on a leash, when my son was really little. Now he’ll just tackle me.

That is a very sweet and funny sculpture. Is the rug made of wood too? If so, that is some die job you did on it! How large is the whole thing?

You have hit the big time, Mike. Your work is becoming something to be reckoned with. I am always looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Thanks guys! The rug is wood. Actually I routed it out of the base and recessed the background so that it stands up about an 1/8th of an inch; the rug is part of the base, not a separate piece. The base is 12” x 5 1/2”, the little boy is 5 1/2” tall and the baby is 3” tall.

Wow! Is that ever cute! The expressions are absolutely classic. This should be some sort of award-winning carving; at least it has my vote. Thanks for brightening my day!
