      I'm back! Drove a 9 point buck out to a young hunter on Friday afternoon. . . his first rifle buck and largest deer. Have seen lots of deer, and have hiked nearly 20,000 steps each of two days, and something like 70 flights of stairs. Good exercise for a diabetic.

      I know a few hunters myself-weather its deer-ducks or geese. Me I stick to hunting in the sea-mostly Tuna halibut and a few rockfish.

      Yeah, if I were where you are I might also. At the same time, we both get wet one way or another.

  15. We have close relatives who are evacuated now and do not know whether they still have a house standing.Its very bad scene now as the fires move around with the big winds.

      I have seen the photo on TV they are devastating, people are digging through ashes and then the poor wineries.  Kansas had fires like this earlier this summer,  killing thousands of livestock animals.   It was caused by drought and poor management of land.  We have a invasive cedar tree here that needs to be kept cleared off the land.  They fill the property in no time and  go up like roman candle fireworks when they catch on fire.  They are trying to get landowners to clear them,  I haven't seen any of that happening.   Denice

      My thoughts are with all those affected by these fires.  

      I couldn't believe how quickly the fires took hold.  They seemed to come out of nowhere, but of course this could just be because the news didn't initially cover it.

  16. Just got an order for some specialty glazed tumblers and mugs for new to open shop in Burlington VT. Its a friend who has a store here locally as well that I sell to .

  17. Firing last glaze  fire before out of state show 1000 miles from here.

      Busy time for us-we are 30 days out on escrow on wifes house sale-just signed in new renters today. I am taking a large wholesale order on trip to drop off in Santa Barbara as my nephew is getting married on beach weekend after art show  so I'm staying south-my wife flys down next week to SB for wedding and we return via medical appointment in SF on way home.

      I will get rested in next few days while packing up. As you know sleep is harder when you are older.I'm making the drive south to Boulder City over parts of 3 days so the longest day will be only about 9 hours drive..

      I'm done making work and last kiln is cooling for two days.

      I plan on swimming in the ocean for 4 days while visiting my sister in Summerland near SB.

      Should be fun, and I am sure that four days of soaking in the ocean will do you good. . .like a fish back in water.  I am trying to fill a bisque load, 25# pickling crock, 20# pickling crock, bunch of mugs, apple bakers, and batter bowls. Going to try working with the 630 on some teapots before the weather freezes me out of the shop. Also have to finish up next Springs Communion set orders.

       

      best,

      we drove down from Red Lodge 180 miles. Had 2 minutes of totality and not much in the way of traffic.

      looking forward to your photos. I used a digital camera for a totality shot.

      .....helped in their gift shop, and sold a few things.Viewed the eclipse until the last sliver of the moon cleared the sun. Many hit the road after totality creating bumper to bumper congestion.

      Fish Glaze >>>Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

      To make the browned butter lime sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. ...

      Season salmon with salt and pepper, to taste. ...

      Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat.
