111 Test tiles

A hundred and eleven test tiles done and the test tile marathon will continue for a few 3 or 4 more days. then I can get back to finishing my cone 10 pots and get a soda firing in - hopefully before the New Year!

I quit at four o'clock when Jim arrive with 60 clams which I had to get soaking and scrubbed. Then I steamed them with white wine, onion,garlic, thyme, parsley, garlic and pepperonici pepper. That lovely broth along with butter to dip the clams and crunchy bread made for a very satisfying and filling taste treat.

Time now for some mindless TV and maybe some computer scrabble or Word with friends (my new discovery).


  1. Impressive undertaking- hope you post the results. Dinner sounds awesome!! Wish I could join you!!

  2. Food sounds soo delicious! I should warn you about Words with Friends...highly addictive, easily can get into fierce 600 pt games where people yell at the laptop :)

  3. So far, I haven't gotten upset with Words with friends. I'm pretty good at it, probably years of doing those newspaper scramble puzzles. I also determined I would gracefully accept any and all losses. It's a good exercise in humility. :-)

  4. You're so right June but it's so frustrating when you're 80 points in the lead with 4 letters remaining in the same and your opponent ends up getting a 123 point word and wins on the last turn :)

  5. Yeah, it can be a bit frustrating but that's part of the challenge. :-)
