just as billed… the game started at 6:30 and ended at midnight. Of course the first 1 1/2 hours went slowly because of a small, energetic and very loud human running around laughing and dancing. At game’s end we were both amazed and impressed that the winner was only a winner by 1 point with a score of 767-768… ay caramba! how is that possible? Here’s the final board… if you notice words that you think may not be, it may be because it was not prudent to challenge them and risk losing a turn and so they were let be… such is Scrabble.
I may have put it off for about as long as possible but I hardly ever use bats when I’m throwing. I understand how much easier they would make my life but I’ve been resisting. As shown below, I think I’ve about reached my no-bat limit… this one is 14+ inches in diameter. Unfortunately, figuring in a 12-13% shrinkage rate to the post glaze fire, it will end up around 12.5 inches in diameter. So somewhere in here I’m gonna have to go get some plywood? maybe, make a circle jig and bother one of my friends that has a bandsaw to let me cut some circles.
Here’s a scary monster that attacked me while at the computer.
