can it really be 103 degrees with a heat index of 111.
111 seems like a number gone wrong.
We are spending so much time keeping things water and shaded that extra time has slipped away from me.
We did go out and share in the celebration of Four Saints last night as the hugs and handshakes went out for a job well done on making goal from their KickStarter fund raising flurry of the past month.
We are very excited for these young guys to see their dream of opening a tasting room in Asheboro become a reality.
It will be good for all of us.
We were talking with many folks about the changes that are happening so fast in Asheboro, our use to be dry town, and where the vote of alcohol has taken them.
As someone who spent most of my youth in big cities it is puzzling why alcohol should be an issue.
Now that it is not we find more of our customers are staying over in Asheboro instead of driving 45 minutes in another direction.
Just watching the changes in Asheboro tells you that it is making a difference for this town.
We are working on mugs for the "mug" club and we have 10 in this kiln load.
The mug will need to hold 20 ounces and we had to beef up the amount of clay we were using to accommodate.
It needs to hold beer and a bit.
If you scroll down on the KickStater page you will see the front mug with a swirl, black with iron red. This goes so well with their colors and logo that we are pretty sure this will be the mug we will make for them.
The 10 blogs- give me a bit more time we are almost finished glazing, we have some pots to pack for shipping and are having out of town company next week. There are some dust bunnies to calm down and some spiders to evacuate.
Then I will be able to think past 103 degrees, 106 degrees, 107...111 degrees..
