A rose between 2 thorns
In the last couple of weeks I've had a couple of surprise visits. Potter Johnnie J and Pat flew in from Myrtle Beach for a week to visit my favourite city- Teeeeee- ohhhhhhhh! Toronto for those that are from away. Toronto is an amazing multi cultural city with lots to do for clay lovers. The Made in China exhibit is on at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art and the Chinese collection at the Royal Ontario Museum is one of the most extensive in North America.
Ronnie the Rat Meyers and his bride Hester also dropped in for coffee on their way to the above exhibits. They have been to China twice and had some great pointers about survival there. We are going to their cottage this Wednesday for our annual fish fry. There will be other potters present- the Reno's a hard working pottery couple, recently retired SUNY- Fredonia prof Marv Bjurlin and Tina, Brian Hopkins U Buff, and Julia Galloway RIT. There will be others but that's all I can remember today. Ronnie has been saving a bottle of George Dickle Reserve 90 proof for us to savour. Life is tuff!!!
