Bought an 8" Samsung tablet last week but came to the true realization that I have no use for it. It's being returned tomorrow...

    Between a smart phone and laptop I would not have a use for one. I can see how for children it would be fun for games.

    I communicate here almost exclusively on a tablet.

Just got back from 2 weeks in the Big Apple. I did manage to visit the Clay Arts Center, a gallery and training center in Port Chester, NY and was definitely inspired by some of the work I had seen there, the least of which were simple pinch pots on a windowsill that contained succulents. Looking forward to getting into the studio with the cool, rainy season starting after the long, hot summer here in the Sacramento Valley!

Off to the Big Apple Friday to celebrate my folks' 70th wedding anniversary. Will get to play tourist and photographer for 10 days. Will try to visit a pottery or 2 while out there.

Wow...has this summer flown by! The farm production is slowing down. The days are getting shorter...this all means more time in the studio with my hands on the clay instead of in the dirt and manure!

    It's about 1/4 acre planted, which netted me about $700 in sales at my streetside veggie stand on weekends during the summer. Next year I'll have some of my pottery and other wares for sale also. Looking forward to the rainy season in the studio!

Wow! Threw a few mugs last night but had a problem with centering, so I closed my eyes and centered blind. What an experience!

    Get a mirror and put it in front of your wheel so you can see yourself. This helps me when centering large amounts of clay.

    I use a mirror to check the form without having to stand up.

Headed to the CA State Fair today. It's an annual trek to see how my wife does in the Jam & Jelly Competition.

    Thanks Johnny; stopped at our local veggie stand and bought a flat of strawberries. Cleaned them, put them in the freezer for 30 min and eating out of the bowl. Yum-EEEE!!

    Brings back memories of picking veggies out of the garden and eating them raw. My favorite way actually.

I finally gotten my hands on the clay after more than a year and two hand surgeries. Yaay!

    I am so happy for you Johnny! I know how it is and how happy one can be when everything is possible once again. Enjoy clay and show us the results.
