LOL. Earlier this year, I was in a group show, and it fell to me to type up
the labels and price list for all of us. I was working from the hand written
lists the other potters gave to me. One of the folks consistently spelled
bowl as "bowel", i.e.:
small red bowel with scrafitto, $20.00
Large Raku Bowel with metallic lusters and crackles, $40.00

I was so very very tempted to make the labels exactly as written, and maybe
I should have, it would have livened things up :-)

Pam, in KC where the weather has taken a turn for the much cooler, and it is
almost time to send the teen and 'tween back to school!!! It is cool enough
to do a happy dance!!
