funky little sugar bowl


(pot by Gary Rith)
I made this as a demo to a class--I can't remember what I was showing them, but essentially I was poking and prodding the little thing, seeing where my fantasies might take me.
Dreamt that my friend T, whose wife is an orthopedic surgeon, set me up for a dental appt with her. I dunno, she wasn't a very good dentist at all, which is maybe not surprising. She made me nervous alright.
I was awakened first by our fat little kitten Emily (age 14) looking for love and cuddles at 4:30, which would make me angry I suppose, except Penny was under the covers by my feet and started doing that DOG GAKK that means she is about to vomit, and I quickly grabbed Penny and dumped her on the floor to spew.
So I guess, thanks Emily for waking me gawdawful early so my toes were not soaked with dog vomit.....

That's no way to wake up, my friend. Ugh.

Eeeewwwww! I thought only cats puked in the morning. Bless you, Emily!

You sure went all artistic on that sugar bowl--great colors and curlicues.

I'll remember to not make dental appts with orthopedic surgeons, lol!

Sorry to hear the way your day started! At least you got penny to the floor- much easier to clean up!

Lynda said...

Awwwww, poor baby. I hate it when they get sick :-(

Aleta said...

Ewww, dog vomit. Yeah, that's a visual I couldn't have done without this morning. Glad the cat woke you up in time.

it was quite a routine gakk, believe me---something that dogs and cats tend to do regularly I think!

Cute pot.

Gross dog vomit.

Lou said...

well isn't Emily the considerate and kind little soul. What a lovely, if slightly chunky story Gary :)

Greg said...

I think penny is one smart dog and working in cahoots with the cat to get you up quickly in the morning hehehehe

Ugh that is the WORST sound. I remember hearing it in the middle of the night once, and actually sticking my hands out letting Olivia barf in my hands just so I didn't have to clean the carpet. That's how much I hate housework!

They're all clean and in the cabinet ready for the weekend!

Oh that was funny, Gary! Although, as mentioned above - a visual I could have done without, even at this hour! lol.

One of ours has been doing the gak thing this week too - yuck.
