the Queen is a pottery student and other such surprises....

I dreamt that I had friends in Buckingham Palace (various minor princes, princesses) and I was over there hanging out and found out the Queen wanted to meet me.  She was taking pottery classes and wanted show me what she had been making! She showed me a vase she was making that had little sculpted hands all over it. Surprise!  Who knew the Queen of England was so imaginative and down to earth ;)

In reality these mugs just came out of the kiln, and you are wondering why I put this guy on one side and the legs on the other.  I explained to the wife while twirling my finger in a loop next to my head:  "remember, not everyone is crazy".

Hands on the sides of the Queen's vase? And I don't get it, the legs on one side mug. Twirling my finger around the side of my head.

Well, the Queen is a notorious dog-lover, so of course she is fabulous!
