Quite an adventure around here the last couple days. Ro had been at an event close by so I picked her up then we went into Bernville, PA to R.I.C.H. Inc and saw the new facilities and picked up 2300lbs of goodness. We got home late Monday night just catching a buckets-drenching downpour which of course also soaked some of my bags of glaze materials. We tarped the back of the truck and hoped for sun the next day to dry the bags before we tried to move them.It almost worked. By the time I had found my son AKA "The Forklift" and friend Troy to move the materials the bags were mostly dry, but one of them had split, so I practically made a new bag out of packing tape.
It took those two 19 year old men 18 minutes to get everything into the basement. Then we spent the next hour putting things away.
I got some trimming done later that evening but most of the work was still too wet to finish, so today I'll start out trimming and handling, then later on I'll start another round of throwing.
There is a lot on the list for the next couple weeks. We don't have a lot of time to stock up for the rest of the summer's events, so they essentially must be made over the next few weeks.

July 11-17th Sirius Rising in Sherman NY
July 18-24th Summerfest in Sherman NY
Aug 2-14th The Pennsic War near Slippery Rock PA
