Kiln opening and the one that did not get away

Tomorrow is the big day. The cookies are baked the pots are priced and ready.
Bill and Di will be here with meat and eggs we are ready for the kiln opening- well maybe we need a bag of ice.....
I was cleaning up from the last of the cookie baking and watching Mark fish down at the pond.
I thought, "he has something..." Then I saw it jump! Wow! he really does have something!
I watched him pull in the big brother of the one caught a couple of weeks ago.
What a brute!
So you fishermen and fisher women take a look at what came out of the pond.



And know that no fish were harmed. We took his picture and put him back.
He was a little over 8 pounds- 24 inches long and at least 6 1/2 inches at his widest point.
A nice fish if I say so myself.

See you tomorrow in Whynot!

Wow, that's a big fish (and a big beautiful pot). How deep is your pond? Good luck with your sale.

I'm a Fisherwoman and while we do a lot of catch & release, I think now that I've been doing slab work, I'd have been tempted to make a fresh potter's plaster mold of the fish! He was so cool looking! Probably better to let him get even bigger ;o)

Hi all- it was a great day with good customers coming and going and taking some pots home. The weather was wonderful- and we enjoyed it.
Cindy- I added you to my blog list.
