so THAT was Friday.....


So, you know: typical bad behavior at the weekly Friday afternoon Chapterhouse happy hour.... Spike and Penny say they look cute in the sunshine....
Tommy, Judy and Stevo joined me and the wife for the beers and popcorn and gossiped about YOU (we really did)

The Friday afternoon happy hour thing started because some of us potters at the Cornell University Pot Shop, well, ME as everyone points out, would work in the studio then slide down the hill, dragging as many others down with me...like Tommy here....


Earlier Friday I was up at the Aurora Art and Design Center, reloading the shelves, dang that gallery is SLICK----although there was this yuppie idiot tourist who was waving some merchandise at me while I was decorating my shelves
"HOW MUCH do these cost? Do they have any sayings inside???"
and I politely responded I did not work there, ask at the desk, and she just kept staring at me, like I should come over to her, and then she FINALLY takes out her damn ear buds....and again she waves the merchandise at me
"what is the price on these is there anything written inside???" and I AGAIN politely say I do not work there, please ask at the desk and go fork yourself"
No. Did not say that last bit.
Sadly, Nance's gallery closes shop this month. She is on to bigger things, but I adore Nance and her family and have loved being involved in her gallery for 4 years......THANK YOU!

As Bucky in Get Fuzzy would say "Catchin' the last rays of the day? Yeah, I'm down with that." :)

Was Maude placing the popcorn in your mouth or throwing it and hoping you can catch it? I love trying to catch food like that! Me and Kyle like playing food catch.

Someday I'll be at the happy hour and it will be GLORIOUS!
