I received a letter from one of my customers and thought I would share it.

Hello Steve,
How are you? Thanks very much for the great vent figure! He has become quite the character. He is liked by young and old but to some, a little scary. Once they get to know him, they seem to be more comfortable around him. Cordell got a chance to sing "Oh Canada" over the internet to a family in Japan by webcam.
Cordell and I are getting better by the day. My son Christian will sometimes talk to Cordell about things he will not tell me for fear of getting in trouble. When Cordell tells Christian what he is doing is bad, Christian listens and usually no more problems.This little trick his Mom and I find helpful in taching Christian right from wrong when he won't listen to us.Hope your wife is feeling better. She is in our prayers. Talk to you later,
Thanks for the letter Corey, as well as the prayers. Darlene is doing much better thanks to everyones prayers.
Ventriloquism has always been a great tool for teaching right from wrong. It is great for any kind of teaching from English to History. Try it the next time your child has trouble with a certain subject. You'll find they are alot more receptive with a "Smart Dummy!"

It's been a long summer

I haven't had much time to add to my blog this month. My wife was in the hospital. She had a schematic attack, better known as a minor stroke. It has been a really hard year for her physically.
Although she is feeling better, she still has some residual effects left. I humbly ask for your prayers for her to regain her strength.
I have finished up all the look alike's I had on back order. One was for a puppet on utube. His name was Adan and he is in a Spanish clip. He is singing about "mansanas", or in english, apples. I did my best on the three of them and have posted pictures of the latest ones. If there is anyone who would like a "mini-me" now is the time before it starts getting busy. I want to thank everyone who reads this blog and remember, I am always available to help you in any way with figure repairs to any advice you might need. As I have said, if I don't have the answer, I will get it for you. You can email me at Have a great week!
