Fancy Stuff

I have not had a working phone for three days now. Oh...this can drive a girl batty! For some reason when it rains here our phone is all fuzzy and well.....it just won't work so I begged and begged for a "Fancy phone" this week and low and behold we took a trip to the Apple store this evening. Yes, one more electronic, left brained toy I need to learn. Right now Joey is "testing" out all the new Iphone equipment so he can teach me. ( Really he's just decided that this was HIS idea and he's not going to give it back to me). So, exciting stuff here!

I have yet to get back into the studio this week. The kid are on fall break and I've been pre-occupied with other "clay related" events in my life that have sort of well...taken over my brain. Last night I did a raku with my students at Winthrop that was pretty fun. I'm not a big raku person but I had a very enthusiastic upper level students who did all the hard work while I just instructed my crew on what to do. At Winthrop raku is done in the electric kiln, which is pretty smoky and HOT. Anyways, that was my big clay adventure for the week. Tomorrow I will be back in my studio. So I'll check in after I get my hands dirty.

My mom and dad have had the same problem with their phone for a couple years. They have had the phone company out on several occasions, but they never seem to be able to pinpoint the problem. So when it's rainy, they use their cell phones.....

We used to have the same problem with our phones, turned out water was getting in to the connection on the outside of our house and they installed new boxes or whatever it is they install :)
Did you get an iphone? I'm thinking about getting Gerry one for his big 5-0 birthday coming up next week, but he thinks the text pad might be difficult to use. Gotta run, slip trailing with Blaine Avery today!
