Spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch
Every morning before I leave the house I check the following just like a Catholic crossing himself. These are the things I just might need today-spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch. I forgot my spectacles on this clay making day. I have decided against my better judgement to go for the cheap clay- 13 Cents a pound versus 69 cents.
The clay I have chosen is a local high iron clay but it is full of roots, coal, rocks, twigs and other nasties so I blunged it and put it thru a window screen. I put the slip in the dough mixer and without my glasses on pushed the down button instead of the up. I had a hellava job cleaning the floor afterwards. Tomorrow I get to make with this clay. I'm very excited!!!!
