…the prodigal returns

Back where we came from, reluctant returnees.

The totem has landed!

And…. here he is! In all his 10 foot glory.

Thanks to Carl Muggli for carving it and shipping it to us, and thanks to Kenton for ‘installing’ it so that our gale force winds didn’t blow it over! The totem was totally unimpressed with his first week of weather outside his cozy box – we have had rain and high winds all week! Now, however, he is enjoying being out in the sun!

We need a name for it now. All contributions will be considered!

  1. Hi Ann & Kenton,

    I’d love to help you out with a name for your totem pole, but I’d need to know the story behind it? Is it a local thing or a Kenton & Ann thing?

    • Take a look at the blog – an earlier entry tells all about it, and what the symbols mean, and what it means to us. It is a North American Indian thing, not a Spanish thing or a Kenton and Ann thing! Will look forward to seeing some names, thanks Mark!

  2. The pic would have been more symmetrical with a dog either end of the balcony, lol.

  4. I wonder how many spotted the dog on the balcony in the first pic.

    It could be called ‘The Big One’ – the totem pole that is.
