Love this story. Oink! Oink! How did you stop laughing at the cop huffing
and the kid trying to tell you what he had done. I'd have broken down and
the cop would have killed me.
I'll do a post on slips for under your blue glazes in few days. Slips add so
much depth to a glaze.
Santa has us working like elves on uppers. sheila is off to set up at the
Guild show and I'm glazing and loading for glaze firing #2 in 5 days. this
is where my dream bigger kiln would be nice.
If you can't laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at.
thanks for the morning yuck.
