My pal Edith Franklin has decided not to make the trip to Tampa this year. =
She's had a big year with her move and the sale of her house, and says she =
just doesn't have the energy for it this year.

That leaves the fabulous Barbara Brown and little old me in search of a thi=
rd roomie. Edith and Barbara had booked a room at the Embassy Suites, acros=
s the street from the convention center, Tuesday to Saturday, free breakfas=
t and cocktail hour w/ munchies.

We need a third roomie. Anybody interested? Write me off list at ksavino@be=

home by the fire tonight with kids, cats and hubby... let it snow.

Hey Kelly, I can relate to how Edith feels. I roomed with her and =3D
other Toledo Potters Guild members back when we all went to Pennsylvania =
a big conference at State College (pre ENCA) We had a ball. However, I =3D
had my trip for this year going to the UP for two weeks the end of =3D
We are just not bouncing back as quickly as we used to.=3D20

However, Edith is really a ball of fire when she does get going. I have
never been to an NCECA but wish I could. Age has brought difficulties =3D
I seem to miss too much, being very short and also partially deaf. I =3D
wish I could meet personally all the posters to Clayart whose names have
become so familiar to me. =3D20

Glad to say I am still working some. Threw a dozen bird bodies today as =3D
as processed the clay through the 40 year old Bluebird. Oh those trusty =3D
pieces of equipment that are still working as well.=3D20

Hope you find someone and have a wonderful time for me.
