There was amazing response yesterday to my union with Dan Finnegan at STARworks, NC in January/February of 2018. Gaydar was working overtime with my biggest blog numbers in years
Why would it be such a surprise that The Odd Couple would want to spend a couple of months working together? Look at what we have in common. I am a carnivore with a love of southern BBQ and Dan is a vegetable that even grills tofu. I drink freshly ground high test coffee and Dan is a tea nanny. Thank God he is not a tea toddler. I like southern bourbon and Dan likes his highland whiskey. As I age I am loosing my hair and he is growing more. Actually I’m pretty sure he came out of his mother’s womb with a full beard. Dan is from working class industrial Buffalo, NY and me I was born in a log cabin I helped my father build. We are both English trained potters. Dan trained at the famous Winchcombe Pottery with Ray Finch and me with jug man Mick Casson.
Dan says he is going to step up his blogging to be in the same league as yours truly. My blogs from China when I was there as a USU student were amongst my best. It was total immersion in my work and the place. It will be interesting for Dan and I report on our residency from the other side of the kitchen table. We will both be fully immersed in our work and the sharing of our skills.
I have a secret weapon that I tried out today when visiting my friend Emma Smith. I took her some bacon donuts to have with our coffee. They are beyond decadent!!! This is what will take Dan over to the Dark Side. Bacon has cured more vegetables than any other meat.
So what do you think if Jack Lemon grew a beard could he be Dan?
Serusly.....looking forward to many strange and wonderful posts from both of you!
