Odds and Sods

I just got a box of books in the mail , ordered via mail from a remainders company. Al Capp wrote and drew 'Lil'Abner' a comic strip that was groundbreaking for it's time. I like some of the old comics a great deal, 'Pogo' especially. "We have met the enemy, and he is us"!

I've still been in the studio, steadily working towards an early June firing. This is a week for mugs...I always promise myself that I'll make a hundred. I usually fall short. Back in the day I made lots of batches of hundreds.

Thanks to Dave Breedin for leading me to this great pile of wood for the kiln. Hardwood edgings, ready to go.

Perfect wood, huh? Is it going to be a continuing source?
Dee's coming your way this weekend, by the way. Or as far as Alexandria. Memorial service Sunday for her friend Margie Prahl. Don't think she'll get to F-burg,though.

i usually run out of gas on cups too... i'd be curious to know how the lenny bruce book is.

Which remainder company did you get the books from?

Perfect, but a finite pile, sadly.

I''m sure I'll write about the lenny Bruce book. I've always been intrigued by him. The book includes a cd of his standup and interviews!

Edward R Hamilton is the bookseller...a huge random selection of cheap books some big bargains.
