We got a puppy to take over for Odie at Wanderlust Ironworks. This little blue heeler puppy is Odie's sisters pup so we are excited to hopefully get a bunch of his quirky traits from his bloodline. Not sure what to do with a dog that has four legs, it will be different to have him just jump in the truck instead of lifting him each time. Im sure all the welding and sparks and noise will become second nature to him and will become another part of the shop that we cant live without. We are thinking that we will name him Tig after a specific type of welding process. He is not here in San Antonio Texas yet but will be by thanksgiving!
We got done installing Autumn's dandelion at fair park in Dallas Texas this week and a repainted a finished sculpture of Simon's as well. The dandelion took 5 hours to install and we lucked out and had an amazing group of guys to help put it up. This thing was 24 feet tall after it was up. The Texas State Fair is going to be great this year. We are right behind Big Tex and the swan boats. Back in San Antonio Texas today and starting new sculpture with all the newly found gears and steel pieces that Danny Saleh has sourced for us! Bought a mattress in Tyler Texas before we headed home and it got rained on two times over the 7 hour drive home! Its been an amazing week! Done with all of our welding and functional and bread and butter jobs that have come in and have an open schedule to make nothing but art for a while!
