speaking of sharks and alligators....

I was getting the work done Friday morning but with continued hot weather...which is predicted to end this weekend...and I was like
"Penny, LET'S GO" and so we went out for the hike on Ithaca East Hill Rail Trail, a huge town park many miles long on an old rail bed, with rivers, hills, a coffee shop, whatever. You can make it a long walk or bike ride, or shorter, and you may recall, it is my favorite. (I have a lot of favorite hikes and rides I think) Anyway, it looks so strange, seeing it for the first time since fall, so naked! But the green is coming....picture down there of our house too with the neighbor's big yellow bush, and also of Penny when we got HOME AGAIN, exhausted little pup after 4 miles walking.....

Tee hee! Got this cartoon from RDM, suits my work lately....

Like I say, you probably need some coolio bowls that I decorated with sharks chasing crocs chasing sharks...fab deal on a set now at my etsy gallery!marvelous deal on a set of shark and crocodile bowls

Your drawings are so cute! What do you use to do the black lines, glaze pen, slip trailer, pencil? Just wondered. Love the photos from your walks. I need to get outside, today!

Sharks and gators, who could ask for anything more? Nice walk.

That big yellow bush (Forsythia) sets off your house very well!!

Lucky you to have such a beautiful place to walk. No wonder Penny was tired. Gads.

Fabulous decorations on the bowls! Ever thought of putting cartoon dialogue bubbles? We could have a blog contest to fill in the dialogue bubbles! Three words max! (Like "I'm tailing you" and the shark says "I'm de-tailing you!"
Mixed dry clay and threw a few pieces, started the kiln, envied Gary's work...the usual...
