We leave this blog up to honor Clinton Detweiler's career as a ventriloquist, instructor, and figuremaker.
You may remember seeing this fellow's progress from worthless bits and pieces to full restoration. That was six months or so ago. During the days I was doing the work, I would hear from his owner every few days, wanting to know how the work was coming along. Could I provide pictures, etc. But once the work was completed, and it was time for repair payment to be made, his owner has pretty much disappeared. I email reminders every week or so. And every couple months I hear from his owner telling me how much he misses "Wilson" and needs to get him back. But to date, Wilson simply keeps me company in my shop, unclaimed. I assure him this is not the first time this has happened and he shouldn't become discouraged. One way or another, he'll find his way home - or I'll find him a new home.
