(pottery by Gary Rith, the wife, and the super sized cat Spike)
In other blogs, which I had not noticed until today, there has been a debate about what a pottery blog should be. I am making what I want and exchange ideas with the other creative people that I like. Too much pottery may be like watching paint dry.

AND THIS blog: NOT watching paint dry. I couldn't stand to only write about pots and I bet you couldn't stand to read it. It does absorb a lot of my time, but so does my fat cat Spike and my pretty wife. And a lot of that sh!t is more interesting.

Speaking of which, the wife found this old wreck of a bike and so we went out to BIKE FIXIT school last night. I only got one pic. Basically, this bike is so bad hundreds of dollars would only begin to fix it :( BUT we are now armed with bike fixit knowledge, and who knows what we might accomplish with a little WD40?

Answer: NO FEAR

I read blogs and write mine for fun. If I wanted a deep discussion, I could go back to school for my MFA.
