Hurricane Ike is an ongoing tragedy for many persons. But I have a story about something positive that came of it. Later this evening, I am going to unveil the product of a man's labor, as he worked to transform this broken tree into something different.

Oaks have a reputation for being tough, but they don't weather storms that well.

@edgarblythe,
Oh, okay. The folds in the work look amazing. Almost like a stuffed felt toy.

I should get a closeup of the cats, but it is on a private place and I felt like an intruder when I took these.

Sad update. The sculpture has been allowed to deteriorate. It should be cut down.
