July is winding down
It was not always this way.
There were times even for us that air conditioning was not an option.
We spent those days lurking in the shadows, only coming out at night to sit and fan ourselves on porches or place ourselves in front of fans blowing lukewarm air.
How quickly we adapt to the new climate. We complain about the winter and then we recreate it in our lives for the summer.
We are an odd bunch.
Mark went and fired the kiln in the summer heat of almost 100 degrees, with a heat index of 108. He was fine because he could come in the work building where it is nice and coolish...
I just keep piling these up for firing later.
We spent a little time at the local beer joint in Asheboro last weekend, after all we need to support the local businesses around us. We have our own mugs up there to drink out of. In fact, there are many mugs there made by us and other local potters. It is a nice exchange of support.
I also like to see the many mugs being used by different patrons and look at what they choose and possibly why.
We were there the other night with friends, it was packed, loud, noisy, music and food. It is a growing business with a great product I hope that when you are in our area you will go find them for a tasting. We all have our favorites, I have mine, when you go let me know which one you tried.
After all it's hot out there, a perfect excuse to go have a cold one.
