SUV scooted around the security barrier and backed into a corner of my =
display. Sturdy display. Only lost three pieces but wiped out any =
above expenses profit. Couldn't light furnace in camper. Brr. Good =
news--can only go up from here and even in Michigan it eventually warms =
up. Better news--I had several nice Waterfall glazed pieces, some sold =
