63 Pots (goodbye 58!)

I made five more pots Wednesday which puts my total at sixty three. I tried to make one similar to Nic Collins' pot with his wonderful red clay, but I had no luck. I think I need to use thicker slip. I also didn't have a torch, but I used a heat gun. It's all about the compromises, isn't it?

I didn't take any pictures of the pots I made Wednesday, but I'll get some on here as soon as possible.

I also have to apologize to my lovely wife for forgetting to wish her a happy anniversary on Wednesday as it was the thirtieth anniversary of our first date. I took her to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the midnight movies on that fateful night (and she actually married me after that!) It's been an interesting thirty years and I'm so glad I spent them with her.

"Don't dream it, be it."

G'night.

Congrats, on the pots not on forgetting the anniversary. My wife does not track those things and looked at me funny when I used to do that. 30 years is a great start!

Big Al-

Thanks, it turns out my wife forgot about the anniversary too so I was off the hook.
