Hearing voices and disruptive ways.

I am actually hearing voices and lots of new sounds. When did they invent click, click on turn signals and tick, tock on clocks? Is this a recent invention?
On my way home from Ottawa I dropped in to see my grand parents Liz Willoughby and Ron Roy. I always seem to be about 20 years behind Gramps. I remember having to shout at him only to have him repeat "WHAT!". Ron showed me his new fangled hearing aids that are connected by Blue Tooth to his I-phone and his TV. Well Santa got me a pair instead of a Teardrop trailer. I was missing a lot of nasty shit that was being said about me and I was making up the endings of a lot of the foreign movies I like to watch. Accents were particularly hard for me to hear. These things are amazing.  I can pick Noisy Environment, TV, Cafe, Theater or Group Conversation. I can listen to my music directly thru the hearing aids and if a noisy truck drives by the volume automatically turns up. I can block out background noise which was always a problem for me.  I can now hear women and children- oops that might have been a reason to walk out on the deal.
So Christmas has been kinda nice around here. I haven't been under the gun to be all things to all people.  I'm back in the studio packing pots to ship to Functional Ceramics, in Wooster, Ohio. I won't be presenting there until mid April but in the meantime I have to be Tuscany for the winter tuffing it out for The Sake of Art. 
I got this good card from Andrew. Saint Nick has been offed by the elves so I won't be the only one  being tortured by Christmas carols next year. It's over, Nick. The game is up. 

Included was a note from Mr. K saying he thought of me and my disruptive ways when he saw this card. Har, har that's a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. Love the card, Andrew! Totally my dark sense of humour.

Will your wanderings include teaching any summer classes at Mohawk College?
