    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Well I think all the well wishers here made a difference for me. I had my best show ever! Only brought home 5 out of 22 cutting boards, all 12 bottle stoppers sold, 4 bowls and lots of other smaller stuff. Got an order for 2 bottle stoppers and a big cutting walnut/cherry cutting board too. Both paid in advance without me asking too. Now, what to do with the extra $$ burning a whole in my pocket.

    NEVER ask that question. Murphy might hear you!

    Thanks for the good wishes... I had to opt out on 12/6 due to weather and a little health problem... mostly because of the weather... understand it stormed down town with wind gusts that were pretty strong... one of the potters lost a whole display case of his work... I know it was frustrating for him, but he said it was just mud and he could make more...

    I did the 13th... the wind blew and it was chilly all day... not overly cold though... just enough chill to get shoppers in the buying mood.... had a good weekend.

    Today, I've opted out again due to possible weather but don't think that has developed, but last weekend standing all day in the wind and cold, both LOML and I came down with sinus infections... me much worse than her and right now I don't have a voice, so couldn't talk to customers anyway... a little congestion down in the chest, so didn't need to be out there anyway.... disappointing, hoped to end the year on a high note sales wise.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
