The church is plenty dressed.  No more is needed. (I agree with the bell.)   Maybe a small snow covered evergreen or two on the base, but fine without that too.

Swamp coolers in Mississippi??  Wow.  Wouldn't that blow a bunch of moist hot air around?  Used them in CA years ago and they worked great there.

"You can lie, cheat, and steal to get the pot you want"  and "Step away from that pot"...which is another version of "don't love it to death".


I have to disagree with saying that if you don't like it when you make it  it won't get any better.  When I don't like a pot coming out of the kiln because it doesn't meet my expectations(doesn't look like I wanted it to, I can sometimes wait awhile (months), then look at it again.  Once my expectations are gone,  I can see the pot for who it is, not for who I wanted it to be, and sometimes I find I like it after all!

Not convinced either.  One thing I do know...we have the nicest bunch of people here on this forum.

I read the whole thing and enjoyed, but then, I'm retired.  Welcome to the forum, "Blue", and welcome back to clay. (those are some expensive coffee cups). Wishing you much joy in your clay journey.  When you have some time it would be great if you put some info on your profile so we can get to know you better.
