You know it is Labor Day from the sounds in the air

No matter the weather the shot guns ring steady for the opening of Dove season here in the rural south.
 We heard them as soon as we awoke this morning and the continue as I type.

 It is funny how the sounds becomes the background noise of the day like a song being called out.
 It is rainy but that does not stop the hunters from sitting out in the cornfields waiting for the Doves.

 Mark and I just took a first look at the kiln by removing the top two rows of bricks. This firing went very smoothly with cones bending very close to one another. The kiln liked this load. It responded well to the way it was stacked. Of course the proof will show tomorrow after all the door bricks are removed and pots taken out.

Those are some sassy handles... More tomorrow. M
