Bowls, Cropping & A Captain In Our Future?

It’s been pretty quiet with not much to report. The bowls that I made for our youngest son, Dan, have been re-fired and they look a little better but I’m still not real happy with the color of the ‘Grape Raisin’ – wanted a better coverage but looks like this is what I’m gonna get. … Continue reading »

Hail & Farewell & Spam

So I thought I was going to be all ‘high-techish’ and schedule yesterday’s blog to post by itself!  I got up this morning and found that I had never clicked on ‘schedule’!  Geesh!  Sometimes I just gotta shake my head and wonder about me. I made a banana pudding right away this morning so that … Continue reading »
