how very nice all of you have been to welcome me back.  i am currently at a friend's house, using her computer because i have not yet dealt with the ( insert very bad words here) phone and internet companies in the area.  wish we had some other choices.

 

paul, today was setup day at  the virginia arboretum.  big field, guild shares 4 tents.  rain forecast.  5 hours of hard physical labor and a 30 mile drive home resulted in a scarfed down chinese food dinner  and a nap............................................. i have discovered that 73 is probably considered old.

You may need to have a talk with that 20-year-old living inside you...she needs to understand that naps are a good thing! :)

Yeah, naps are a good thing. I need one today after turning the kiln off at 2am on a glaze load. Should be a great load with the first time I used my new sprayer from Bailey.  Old age has to be creeping in as I keep looking more and more for an add on controller to make babysitting a kiln not so constant, at this rate I might as well be firing a fuel burner of sorts. :wacko:

Naps are not just for those of advanced timelines, naps are the reboot button on the day. Wish i had more time for a nap now and again.

ayjay, thank you, she looks as though she is about to walk down the curving marble stairway to start the ball.  how beautiful!

 

paul, 20 is too old, I am really 11, old enough to ride my bike pretty far from home but too young for any responsibility.
