Blue and Gray

I left my new friends Allison and Blair after an amazing dinner of ginger shrimp and grits.  I was in the heartland of the civil war. Some in the south think it is still going on. I have friends both blue and gray and I love them all dearly. I feel like I looted the country and headed for cover over the Peace Bridge. I brought home some amazing pots from Allison and Blair. They wouldn't take money so I guess I owe them my first born. Hey, he has a good job and a good work ethic so it might be a fair trade. I just had to bring home an old Windsor chair. Allison sent me to the right place and my chair was right inside the door waiting for me. I headed north to drop in to visit the Rats- Ronnie and Hester. As always the welcome mat is out and I slip into their lives like family. I also should mention that I had supper with my soul mate Dan Finnegan and he sent me home with the best peanuts Virginia can grow-Hubs. Then in the mail was a lovely post card from Dan. What a man of total class!
You have to be a friend to have friends! I count myself one of the luckiest dudes on this planet. Thank you to my friends south of 49. I'd go to the wall for y'all!

Beautiful pots and love that chair too!! I think you are blessed in these friendships because you are a good friend, otherwise you wouldn't have such great connections with ppl...

With that haul, you really did "
score". Thanks for a great workshop.

Tony, if you keep heading south so much we're going to have to grant you honorary citizenship!

That's a great chair. I'm very partial to Windsors myself - so was Hamada, who had some 18th century beauties in his collection.

Love all those great pots as well!
