new glasses and Danielle kicks some azz....





The wife gets her new glasses on Friday and is like TOTALLY AUDREY HEPBURN and that is the absolute BEST look and I know you agree...and I picked up my new glasses too. You are probably thinking, correctly, that they look a lot like my old glasses. I liked my old glasses, therefore....anyway, life is a lot more in focus and I cannot complain about the menu board up on the wall at the Chapterhouse anymore. I have been missing a lot of specials! My rotten sock monkey Georges Le Soq was along at the Chapterhouse with us, and he is like "ha! look at my new glasses mon ami!".

When you are a teacher and a student is doing badly, you feel horrible. Conversely, when a student is as good as Danielle here, you feel like the best teacher on earth. Thursday in my last Cornell class of the summer, Danielle tells me "I want to make a teapot" and we had talked about them before and I help her a little with getting started. FRIDAY we are all back in the Cornell studios working and gossiping and Danielle comes in to show me her finished teapot, and its like "OH MY GOD that is awesome". She says she worked on it for 6 hours!

Julie needed personalized bowls for her little cousins with cats on them, and they look super good, eh?

Love Le' Glasses..:) Oh and that teapot Danielle made is spectacular. I love to teach and see the brilliant shine come through when they create something wonderful. I love to see the pride on their faces and feel that somehow I was instrumental in helping them reach their goals. Great Job teacher, Cousin Wonderful...!
