Did you check out old I am? It says 1963. That's old! Started new portrait. You won't see this one. No show tonight for my pottery class. wonder what happened to them. Could have gone to CBC show for D. Gast. Wish I had. Carnegie said the reason they are closing is the usual. Not enough volunteers, not enough money and the City of Walla2 won't cough up maintanance on building. It really is a cool bldg. The Pottery Place Plus in Spokane has OK'd a show for me. If it happens I''ll get you all a post card. Cool huh! Did you know my wife is named Pat? Pat and Pat, isn't that cute. She is going to show me how to post pics of my work just like everyone else, soon. One of my film cameras died so we are thinking about a digital camera for me too. It seems odd that a gallery wouldn't charge enough commision to cover expenses. I would have paid a rental fee if it meant keeping the gallery. Some galleries are charging a membership fee. It doesn't matter how much it costs as long there is enough sales. The best outlet I ever had charged 55% mark up. That means for every $1 sale I got .45 and they got .55. I wish I had something like that now. The sales were 3 figures every month. I am really bad with names, that's why I married a woman with the same name as me but has anyone invited You&I frameshop to 509art? Thanks Pat (the guy)

Gee, Pat - you're looking pretty good for being nearly as old as Jesus.

Geez! the woman who worked on my broken tooth was a past student of mine from middle school. So was the dentist. If you were a teacher would you rather have a past student as a teacher, a principal or proctologist (those last 2 are the same thing) or a dentist? Life isn't fair. You should never run into old students.

I just read a book, last month, that said that Gregory missed counted the years from Jesus' birthday. I might be as old as him. Simon Peter and I were talking, I think it was the year 3, and He agreed.
