SO I have to deliver some of these pots up to Nance in her gallery. My pal from Duh Moines Kasey once said "I can see Nancy is a good time gal" and you can see she is pretty saucy and sassy. Nance herself is a painter (she paints on ....Everything!) plus she runs this nice gallery next to a kickin' bakery.
ANYWAY I have taught classes at her store, which if I may speak frankly, I have to admit to making a lot of money doing the classes. I will show up with a box full of supplies and help students make a project and then fire it up at home. Then Nance gives me a fat check.
SO she is always pestering me to teach more, but being the stubborn/shy person I am, I have resisted but she convinced me yesterday----because I want no more than 3 students. I will teach MANY classes, but only just with 3 people--I figure I can handle little groups without getting too uptight.
WE ALSO cooked up a brilliant idea. We had both been on the Ithaca Art Trail, which is super expensive for the traffic coming in the door. Me and my wife had considered having our own open houses, of course, which would cost NOTHING. Nance didn't know that and she suggested the same thing. Maybe we could call it G.R.E.A.T. for Groton-Etna Art Trail (name of our towns). I think its pretty brilliant, and she sez maybe we could get Gallow and Dee involved.

AND I am going on a wee little road trip today. Let's just say I get to be Linc I think---more on that later.
(remember the MOD SQUAD? Holy cats Peggy Lipton was cute)
