espresso: the aftermath
(pots by Gary Rith)
down a few clicks you will see pics of me with the beagle yesterday morning, just before she slurped my double espresso. The wife snapped this shot here after the beagle jumped back onto my lap, but you can see the coffee cup off to the right. Penny wasn't overenergetic yesterday, but let's just say she NEEDED TO GO TO The bathroom shortly after this pic was taken. She eats and drinks everything. There is a lot of salt on the road lately because of snow and ice, she eats that. Rocks and dirt too. Yesterday I had a customer visiting, and Penny came in to charm them? I had to explain that Penny eats clay, which she proceded to do, searching around for any clay scraps on the floor, and every potter has a load of clay scraps on the floor. But you see, this visitor was a VET. I was contacted by a person needing purple bowls and piggy stuff (OH HO!!!! I HAVE LOADS OF BOTH!!!) and she came over and she is the coolest. Not just a vet, a traveling HORSE VET. I love horses, wouldn't you want to be a horse vet too, driving off to farms to play with horses all day?
Of course, the only thing better than a horse is a striped horse, zebras, and here is my zebra teaset in for its first firing to be glaze fired tomorrow, AND the first finished heart mug.
