Missed Opportunities...hopefully not

Just a quick post as it's late and I'm still tired from getting home from Fenway at about 1:30 last night.  I'm getting a little too old for that.  The Sox lost last night but tonight they clinched a playoff berth...bad luck for us because the party was just about right in front of our seats with all of the players coming out of the clubhouse after being doused in champagne.  Papelbon literally stole all of the bases and gave them to fans.  Mike Lowell sprayed champagne over the fans who stuck around to watch the festivities.  Too bad....if they had won last night our first ever trip to Fenway Park would have been ridiculous.  It was still a great night and I'm glad that I was able to surprise Evangelina with the tickets...she was thinking that we were just going to dinner.  Well, I guess we did....hot dogs and overpriced beer.  It was fantastic!

Anyways, I got an email from Truro Center for Arts at Castle Hill letting all of the Cape Cod Potters members that there was still space in the Randy Johnston 2 day workshop this weekend.  I hadn't been planning on going but I feel like this is one of those moments that I'll be kicking myself over if I miss it.  Evangelina is heading out of town this weekend so I'm not sure how much babysitting I can line up on this short notice.  I already have a sitter coming on Saturday to help out so I'm thinking if I can at least sneak up there for a day it will be worth it.  I have taught workshops at Castle Hill often and I've always enjoyed heading out there.  They have a great variety of artists teach but it's typically in the summer so even if it's someone I'm dying to see there's no way I can sneak out of the gallery to check it out.  

If the stars align correctly hopefully I'll be out in Truro this weekend.  It's been years since I've been to a workshop.  Maybe it will do me some good as I'm smack dab in the middle of a throwing session getting ready for my November shows.

Fenway Pics tomorrow....and maybe even some pics of pots I've been working on.
