Dan asked if they were handles on my cups. Well, Dan they aren't. They
are lugs. Anyone one from the north of the UK has been threatened with a
cuff in the lug. A box in the ears so to speak. They are little ears.
I learned how to be this frugal from you my man. Because we are both
handle men and I too hate to waste I use the trimmings from my pots to
attach these little lugs. Because I trim at cheese hard (cheddar not
brie) there all these wonderful little curls and adornments that I can't
resist sticking on the sides of my bourbon and tea bowls. Some I like
really sharp so they could poke an eye out. I'm that kind of guy. I do
the damnest things to not be accepted into my guild sale. My audience
boils down to 13 muchkins and a throll. It seems to keep me working.
