Thanks for the comments about Gerry's photo yesterday, I didn't have time to respond to all of them but read them all, passed on to Ger!
Thanks also to the folks that have featured my raku barn on Etsy, the treasuries look great. I keep thinking I would like to do a treasury, but there's another time suck, just can't get to it.
This is the last raku barn I have, one is on hold for someone. I really like the raku barns and they are all surviving the thermal shock. I can remember when I first started doing raku I was told by many that my slab work would not survive, well it does if you build it right!
In other news, Gerry and I have had to do a 360 on our vacation plans. We were going on a backpack trip to Colorado, but the trails we chose have 5ft or more of snow on them, there are avalanche warnings and so..... we are heading to Maine, New Hampshire and a short side trip through Cape Cod to see Hollis and Dee! Big shift here, Gerry spent months mapping out the Rockies trip and now I am mapping out Maine, the white Mts. in New Hampshire and a side trip to the Cape. Whew..... campground reservations, back country permits, hotel stops with our Marriott points, and figuring out what we want to see. If any of you have ANY suggestions, please pass them on!! Michele.... NH?!? Hollis is sending me some things, thank you :) and we are looking forward to seeing him and Dee on our way home. Looks like the Colorado snows might be a blessing, we have been to Colorado several times but I have only been to Maine once long ago when I worked for Old Town Canoe. Looking forward to seeing it with my family and not during a sales meeting! Know any good trails, restaurants, things we can't miss?!?!
