Those of you who know VUBOQ know that he's into making pottery lately. Well, he decided to give some of his pottery away, I can't remember why exactly, to be a fabulous individual perhaps, and invited readers to specify something they'd like. Well I wanted the pencil holder since my setup was so mickey mouse. So here you see the new, one of a kind, hand-made pottery pencil holder. And then because he is so giving, he threw in a coffee mug that he made as well. I am at this very moment enjoying my joe in that cup. (I'm wondering if the dishwasher is appropriate for the cup now. )
I told my story to everyone yesterday. They were all surprised that you can rob a supermarket with little or no consequences. It's interesting to talk about because the students had their own stories of robberies to tell. And we agreed that you never know how you will react in such a situation until it happens. We also knew that the thing you clearly should have done, like me trying to trip the guy instead of tackling, is only apparent after the fact.
Yesterday the dog was better than I've seen her in months. I came home from my last class and spouse said the same thing. Lately we arrive home and she remains a lifeless lump only lifting her head to see who came in. Yesterday she was her old self excitedly greeting us when we came in. Spouse even said, "We can't take her when she's like this." Oh and he found a mobile vet who will come to our house when the time has come. I'm glad, I don't want her last waking moments in a place she hates more than anything.
