C eh N eh D eh!

Love it or leave so they say, eh. I'm going to leave it next week to spend some time with my Georgia buddies. Ronnie told me to bring my long johns. He said  the long range forecast for the firing is rain. Well at least with rain you don't have to shovel it. Although Ronnie tells me he had to use a sump pump in the back of the kiln to bail it out. I always thought H20 aided reduction so maybe it'll be a killer firing as long as it doesn't kill us trying to get temperature.

I was a basket case yesterday being trapped in the house. On my way to the studio to make baskets I  kicked the snow banks since I don't have a dog. I was in a bad mood with this winter nonsense. For those that strap on skis and snow shoes, go tobogganing, and frolic in the winter wonderland I salute you. Take up a collection and send me any where but a snow laden land.

  On the sixth day, God turned to Archangel Gabriel and
  said, "Today I am going to create a land called Canada. It will be a land
  of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains full
  of mountain goats and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass
  and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs over-looking sandy
  beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon."

  God continued, "I shall make the land rich in resources so
  as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants
  Canadians, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the
  earth."
"But Lord," asked Gabriel, "don't you think you are being
  too generous to these Canadians??"
  "Not really," replied God.. "Just wait and see the
   to winters I am going to give them!"

I'd make some crack about the frozen north but southwest Ohio is 30 degrees F colder than Fairbanks Alaska this week.Have fun in Georgia but take your water wings. Can't be too careful.
