NOT snarky. Really. Honest.


(2 flower pots for Denis' mom, in progress, made by Gary Rith)
What happens in life if you have a sense of humor that gets you into trouble? What if you find most everything funny?
I am not out to make enemies, oh NO! But many things in life are funny. I figured our potsblog visitor below Virginia was a prank. Whoops! I am starting to think otherwise. I hope I have not made the young woman upset by publicizing her question and my amused-responding-to-a-prank responses. If she writes back I will definately help her find a glaze that looks like what she wants.
Back to snarky. Denis, I have changed my mind. The flower pots you requested: I am not in the mood to put either a moose or a baby on them. I am in the mood to do something else. You'll find out when your order arrives.
I am reminded, of course, of Howard Rourke in 'The Fountainhead' or Frank Lloyd Wright. They made what they wanted and ppphhhhlllbbbtttt! To the customer. Denis is my oldest friend. He will be very happy with his order, however it turns out.
Finally, dreamt last night I was a pitching coach for the Yankees. My top prospect was a ten year old. I am not a Yankees fan and have never coached baseball. Amusing dream, but where does all this lead me?

Oh, Gary. If she read some of your site, she'll know you're a goofball. If not, then it's her own fault for not doing her research.
