shysters, slackers and slick cons....

Tuesday was hot.  The kiln was on full speed and finished, the rack of newly thrown pots complete, the dog sitting job (walking in the hot sun!) over and only one last thing to do Tuesday, a cat sitting job.  Which took me a few miles ... in the direction of my parents and their pond.

I earned that dip!

Had some funny dreams:  in one I walking in Chicago's busy  west Loop and along with a small crowd of other walkers raced across the street...apparently traffic ignored the lights at this spot and nearly all of us narrowly missed getting flattened!  At the far side, a young lawyer was walking around handing out business cards and asking if anybody was injured and wondered if they wanted to sue somebody? Then I walked into a store and everybody wanted glasses like mine!  So we used a magic xerox machine and made 11 copies....and charged the new owners 25 percent of the cost of the originals, whatta scam!

Gary you start my day off with your own sunshine!

To swim in a pond in the summer sunshine is to heal the soul.

That pond looks good!

It was over 90 here yesterday. I am enviously eyeing that pond.

What a fine way to end a summer day.

A natural pond….with no gators? Delightful!
