Groucho, Eat Your Heart Out…

Someone is going through another “tape” phase… I should own stock in 3M or Scotch Brand with the amount of tape we go through. The funny thing is attempting to tape untapable (<–untapeable?) things to the wall, e.g. a hammer or a large stuffed animal… you know, something heavy.

Anyway, the beat goes on. I just barely fit all the bowls into a bisque load which is running as I type this. You know when you get to the top shelf and the remaining pots stick up about 1/8 of an inch to high? My kingdom for three 5 and 1/2 inch posts! I even called a friend to see if he had some 5 and 1/2ers and it didn’t occur to me until talking to him that he only does flat wall pieces and all his posts are 1 and 2 inchers. I ended up cheating it and they eventually cleared the lid by a sliver.

    I was closing the kiln top a week ago and suddenly realized………!!!! STOP! I needed a 1/4 inch. What I do is I have a lot of one inch posts, and that way you can use them as a one inch, or if you can replace two with a one inch flipped up, which saves that half inch. If I am making any sense at all.
    Your kid is the most hilarious child on earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sofia’s a ham, allright. She must have been hanging out at Gary’s. 😉

    I love those bowls, Jim. I’m having trouble figuring out the scale, though. How big are they?
