3 random facts, 2 frogs, 1 snail...

(new bowls by Gary Rith)
How is THAT for improvising a post title???
You will see below that there is a SNAIL on our bouquet!  How is that for a natural, organic flower arrangement?
And maybe you could say "it is 2 bowls, each has 2 frogs!" which is true.

Now let me remember, what were those 3 facts....

1)  8 YEARS!  I have been blogging for 8 years now.  Started with myspace, moved to blogger in August 2006 then filled that up, started a second blog then this one...there are links down there (not to myspace).  I never ever look back at old blog posts, I just don't care, but 8 years of daily posting seems pretty good, doesn't it?  many of you have been along since the beginning.... this means YOU CM!

2)  Dreams:  wacky!  I was dreaming that my uncle...or was it grandfather?  Owed a lot of money to a men's clothing shop.  He gave them 50 sculptures he had made (which actually, since he never sculpted anything--I MADE, in my dream.) They were wooden and leather and I didn't care for them.  So anyway, long after my grandfather is dead, I discover these sculptures cluttering up a men's store...for sale...and I tell them "I don't really like them, but I could rent a Uhaul and take them away..that is my best offer.  Then you could have your storeroom back!"

3)  oh, who cares what 3 was :)  have a great Tuesday!

Well, glad your math doesn't take in my money...I'd say 4 frogs in all!

I started blogging in June 2006, so I remember you from early on. And your pottery, dreams, gardens, recipes, sock monkey, and EVERYTHING is still just as, or even more, awesome than EVER!

Eight years? Where does the time go? I immediately thought of the King of 8.

I started blogging in Dec 06. It was a good year for many of us.

That is just the cutest little snail ever.
