Salt glazed sake set from Japan

Here's a nice little, blue accented, sake set from one of my Japan trips.

I don't know what happened but after I was able to download Windows SP3, and re-loading my anti virus software, the blue screen of death hasn't appeared since! After days of frantically trying to download my documents in between the blue screen of death appearing regularly, giving messages with the words "fatal error", this is quite a surprise. Yesterday I even spent time researching laptops, figuring that any minute I was going to have to buy a new one!

The universe has a great sense of humor, though. Now that this problem seems to be temporarily solved, and company is gone, our dog Shanti has been having pee accidents, probably due to another infection due to the Cushing disease he's on medication for. So today's plan to get studio time is probably going to change to "take Shanti to the vet day". After two accidents yesterday, we wound up taking him out about every hour and a half; and of course it was raining most of the time! Poor dear is 12 years old and seems to be fading fast lately.

If we can get an early enough appointment at the vets, I may be able to get in some studio time this afternoon. With more rain coming, gardening is out of the question other than watering seedlings, maybe planting more seeds. Hopefully I will be able to get in some time in the studio. I'm getting a bit frustrated at not being able to find work time!

Till later,


  1. i'm sorry about your dog. my friend;s dog recently died of cancer a couple of months ago. And i'm glad your computer problem is over for now. I had a hard drive problem once , I lost all of my stuff from pictures to letters and games. Things will get better. Smile, relax, and grab a shot and a beer. LOL

    I'm so sorry about your dog Shanti as well.
    He looks like a great pet.
    I have a dog too, his name is Spiky, a yorkshire terrier. He is my child and my brother, and I love him very much.

    I sometimes get computer problems myself, often. My computer will crash and I'm like, you've gotta be kidding me. LOL.

    Well hang in there in feel much better.
    Oh and by the way say hi to Jim Perry, your nice husband, for me if you can.

    You know your pottery always amazes me, and though I do not know much about pottery, I would love to learn, especially from you. Your teachings and knowledge is great.

    Well you take care and have a good night.

    Yours truly,

  3. Happy ST. Patrick's Day Jim And June
