    Sounds like looking after a baby in the night. Be nice if they had come with an "off" switch.

    3 am wake up was mine, no alarm, but in the past I have found that best not ignore a wakeup-just get dressed and go check. . too bad it was snowing!

    I get the "way we always did it", that way myself building houses. I am however very attached to my digital controllers.

Another day of the Adult Ceramics class. Regular teacher could not be there, so I had another art teacher as the teacher while I assisted. Demonstrated a 3lb bowl first then a 15lb with elbow open up. Lots of fun. Will keep the for door prizes.

    I like demonstrate, and teach. Keeping records and attendance was always a drag.

Away from the house and shop to go hunting with my Dad for the next week or so. I try to spend as much time as I can with him.

    Very wise decision. I buried my dad 5 years ago.

    My Dad is 90, and still does most of the driving-for those of you that are hunters.

Dealing with bursitis right now. . should have known better than to cut in ceilings without breaks for painting rental. Oh well, no clay for a while.
