LATE Saturday.......


(Katie and her cups)
SO, finish a bunch o' stuff at the home studio and the wife needs to do an errand which is a perfect opportunity to visit my friends at the Cornell Pot Shop and make more stuff and gossip with the gang and all, and Katie is there finishing these and I say
"those are the cutest cups and saucers!" thinking to myself (maybe add a little bunny or frog?) and Katie is like, out of the blue, reading my mind,
"I should put a frog on here" and I am like
"YES!" and show her how I make a frog. Katie is a mathematician. She teaches differential calculus to engineering students. She is so darn smart it blows the mind, but she is a sweetie pie, and now she can add frogs to things.
So then we slide down the hill to the disreputable Chapterhouse bar with another potter, Tommy, for the beers and popcorn with the predictable silly results....

Frogs! I love frogs... especially on pottery. Those are cute little cups & saucers. Very creative for a left-brainer. :)

When are they going to come out with that transformer thingie; or beamie thingie so that I can travel to see you and the Missus and Lis and then bem back after an hour or so?

How cool that she chooses to make cups and saucers (and frogs) to unwind that valuable mind.

Happy Saturday! (Did you ever find any Shiner Bock up there? You should start nagging the bartender to order some up.

:-D

Glad you got to take a break and relax! I'd be right there with you and your friend and the beers! (Oh yeah FW too!) You know, this is the first time I've ever heard of Beer and Popcorn as a duo.
Down here it's usually chips and hot salsa, or guacamole mixed with pico de gallo (hot peppers, tomato & celantro)! And/or Nachos! Mmmm......
