last day of the open studio



(tiles and pottery by Gary Rith, and YES, that rude gnome is giving you the finger)
SO, yesterday the expected winter blizzard (weather on the radio claims 3-5 inches snow) never arrives, but man, a zillion customers came over. Biggest one day open house I have ever had! Aside from the many new customers there was also Terri Ann fom across the street, Stephanie and John and baby Carter from around the corner who own Penny's favorite enemy Ava the greyhound, Rob and Megan the horse doctor, Leslie and Karen, buddies of mine from the Cornell pot shop, and Werner and Rob at the last second who didn't want a beer and got to watch me make cups with my nose running freely which would put anyone off their beers. YES, you read that correctly, my nose ran off and on all day darnitall, with a huge crowd visiting, and what can you do while working except drip? Looks horrible I bet. Nose seems better today, although red.

You wake up some days dying to hear Van Halen's Panama, yes you do.....

Congrats on the open house, Gary... Hey, how do you promote your open house event? Sounds very successful. Hope the nose faucet has slowed to a drip.
