You're not the boss of me!

I guess I have lived my life believing " nobody is the boss of me." I've made pots my way and the lucky f32-ker  that I am I have had some long time supporters that have encouraged me to do just that. Don't think of me of a courageous maker of one offs. I make production work that is easy to make and easy to like.
Lisa Charlton and her husband have been amazing collectors of the work I wish I could always make. I sold Lisa a pot when she was 13 and made Lisa and Paul their wedding dinner ware 28 years ago. It was a 12 piece setting wood fired. I have never made another wood fired dinner ware set.
I learned over 30 years ago when at Wobage Farm in Wales with Mick and Sheila Casson that a potter needs to make "some and some!' Some for the market place and some for you. I have never forgotten to make for me. That ain't guts, it's love of the craft. If I wanted to do the same every day I'd have worked at the Ford plant.  Hey wait a minute that wouldn't work. I have always believed " you're not the boss of me!"
Lisa and Paul have a house full of me. Paul thinks the foundation is shifting under the weight of all my pots.  I really must get myself invited for dinner.
Thank you all for coming to my sale today. I have a couple of wild women coming over tonight for a beer. Christine "Woodstock" Torres and Cathy "Purple Hair"are due any time. It should be a great laugh. I am one lucky f32-ker to belong to the fine craft society. I will have to kick them out as I'm on shift tomorrow morning at the firing of Queen Anne. It is pissing rain.
Over 30 years of friendship and collecting me.

Hi friends!
I am Tessie Chris by name and i want to use this great opportunity to
share with you some great and amazing testimony of how i was cured from HIV
Virus with the help of Dr idahosa Herbal Medicine.
Over 2 years now i have been suffering and living in pain with this deadly
virus HIV, fear grew in my mind everyday as i heard there is no cure for
it, but to me i knew that medical drugs was not the only option in treating
viruses and infection, my greatest problem was that i was stocked in pain
as the symptoms has circulated over my body.
Few Months ago i decided to get more information online concerning HIV,and
while i was surfing the web, i came across some great testimonials from
various people on how Dr idahosa has been using his herbal medicine to cure
different disease, at first i was shocked as i have never heard of such
thing before, and also i doubted if it was true as it never came up on
media, these people gave out the email address of Dr idahosa and advised we
contact him for any problem, though i was doubting him i decided to put a
test on it, moreover it was the first time for me to hear something like
that, i copied the email address of Dr idahosa and i sent him a message
about my health status and i also requested for his medicine in order for
me to get good health, he gave me a responded after some hours and he told
me the procedure involved in order for me to get his medicine, he also said
to me he was going to send me some herbal liquid medicine which was going
to take for 2 weeks and after 2 weeks i will be totally cured.
I went with Dr idahosa and i followed exactly as i was told by this man,
after 3 to 5 days of communication i eventually received a package from the
mailing service and that was the medicine sent by Dr idahosa.
I started taking the medicine as i was directed by Dr idahosa and after 2
weeks i also started seen some changes on my skin, and after a month passed
i noticed that the rashes on my skin are cleared, i was surprised and i had
a thought to myself again LIKE! IS THIS REALLY WORKING OUT? when i noticed
this changes i contacted this Great Dr and i told him about it, he told me
to go to the hospital and do some check up if the virus is still there, i
actually went to the hospital on Friday to do some test on my blood and
after 3 days the result came out that i was completely free from Hiv, still
many people will not believe this, but it did really works.

i am living in good health as just with a test i conquered my pain and
sorrow, Please you can contact Dr idahosa for any problem with the email
