Great work. Must be quite the vision for drivers. It’s not everyday that you see a 12ft eagle sitting roadside.

Great idea, visit old friends, have fun carving and get paid for it! You not only manage to amaze me, you
do great carvings, live a wonderful life, and leave a lot of beautiful memories. Thank you for sharing.

You did an awesome job carving that bird with fish, well done. What species of tree is it? Like my Grandma and art teachers used to tell me, sign & date.
